F1-S-R: SOLITUDE RENNSTECKE (1974)

 F1-S-R (1974) SOLITUDE RENNSTECKE - Launching into the air, Wesley and Jason White battle for position as I calmly follow on. — with Jason White and Wesley Rosella at Stuttgart Solitude.

My incident free race at Interlagos, Brazil gave me new confidence to take on the field safely on the 9th February 2013 at the Solitude Rennstecke; a vintage track that hosted only a four F1 races from 1961 to 1964. Of course that didn’t stop us from brushing the leaves off the dusty old track to take to the tarmac in our wonderful old 1974 racing machines. This circuit – because of it’s long length – was indeed a race of endurance where many dropped out due to accidents and mechanical defects. Highlights of the race were: numerous overtakes by me as many threw themselves off the track, as did I at one point, and a top-ten 8th position. The video below with commentary by Jason White covers the events of the whole race with mentions for me at 11:43.
