Deutsches Filmarchiv in Berlin. There you'll find the following link for a search mask :

A quick search for 'Hockenheim' brings up two matches but both past 1964.
I haven't seen that site before, I just remembered it was called 'Bundesarchiv' and this is it: https://www.filmothek.bundesarchiv.de/s ... hockenheim

It contains footage of Hockenheim from 1948, throughout the 1950s until 1962, then from 1968 onwards :smiley:

I think Sergio will be pleased to know that he'll only need to create three track objects besides the pit area: The crowd, the trees and some strawbales :tongue:
Racing is living and everything that happens in between is just waiting.

Oh and in addition to aboves GP 500 post: I`ve ordered the FIM's 2016 red bible to solve those startnumbers unmentioned ;)
Happy weekend everyone, I`m on call

Does that "red bible" really contain this info, and if, where can I order one?
Official MotoGP website shop. It is the only copy available (& released publically) except you find someone of the eligible circle who got it exclusively in previous years.
There you go >>> http://store.motogp.com/en/motogptm-176 ... rsion.html
Hmm. The description sounds like it is just a compilation of "points finishers", not a word about complete results or even starting numbers. Unless you find out it does contain more info I'll pass it up.

You are right. There ain't startlists.
It contains from 1949 - 2015 mainly :

- Final championship standings
- Top 5 to Top 15 results (depending on year & race)
- Results per rider
- Results per manufacturer

For me it is a good guide through the history of the sport and quite helpful too when I read these old books
