Sebbbl - correct me if I'm wrong.
Is this the section where the banking was, or was this the other end?

This is where the banking was...

I was too lazy to walk the 4-5 km the the Südkehre :oops: (but I'll do that this year...)
Thank you very much for those pictures.
It brings those of us that are not too close
to that area a glimpse of racing history.

I know of old racetracks around here that townhouses are now built on
top of!

Could you please take photos of this one (I didn't find it as I'm not from Berlin) Or is it just the well known AVUS monument???

well 3 weeks ago I visited the AVUS track again to take photos of the thing I missed doing before...

finally I came to the podium (I had to crawl through bushes and bushes :haha: ) But the feeling there is undescribable :smiley:
ImageImageImageImage

the new (ugly) monument...
ImageImage

the old south turn (there's absolutely nothing left)...
ImageImage

and finally a nice pic of the Nordkurve (I even drove on it with my car - great DTM-feeling)...
Image

I also filmed my drive along the autobahn. It took 4:30 min from south-curve of the F1 track to the north-curve. F1 cars managed it in 55sec - I guess they had less traffic


enjoy :smiley:

It was used built in ca.1959 and used until ca.1990

podium ceremony 1959

in 1990 Michael Schumacher won the F3 race and stood on this podium

afterwards the podium ceremony was somewhere else on a little metal-stand
