Auto-Union P-Wagen 1933-1937
The Auto Union Grand Prix racing cars types A to D were developed and built by a specialist racing department of Auto Union's Horch works in Zwickau, Germany, between 1933 and 1939.

Having been made redundant from Steyr Automobile, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche founded Porsche in Stuttgart, with engineering colleagues including Karl Rabe, and financial backing from Adolf Rosenberger. Unfortunately, car commissions were low in the depressed economic climate, so Porsche founded the subsidiary company Hochleistungsfahrzeugbau GmbH (HFB) (High Performance Car Ltd.) in 1932 to develop a racing car, for which he had no customer.[1]

The impossible victory⬇GP of the Nürburgring 1935
This event was considered to be one of the greatest motorsports victories of all time. The 1935 German Grand Prix was held under one of the most chilling & dreadful conditions. An estimated 300,000 German fans including some of the most powerful and high ranking Third Reich officers showed up for the race. There were high expectations that one of the German drivers would win the race since they had the most powerful and advanced cars. 3 Alfa-Romeo was presented by the Scuderia Ferrari team and were driven by Italian drivers Tazio Nuvolari & Antonio Brivio, along with Monegasque Louis Chiron. The rest of the competitors were from Maserati, ERA & Bugatti and were contested under private teams.
The race position was determined by a ballot & Tazio Nuvolari secured the front row at P2 but due to a poor start, Nuvolari dropped down to the third place with team mates Brivio retiring at lap 1 & Chiron at Lap 5 leaving Tazio with the only Alfa Romeo left competing in the race. Italian legend Nuvolari, drove a very hard race in appalling conditions, and after a dreadful start was able to pass a number of cars, particularly while some of the German cars pitted. By lap 10, Nuvolari was already leading the race while the rest of the cars were struggling to maintain a grip on the now rain-soaked track. After a botched pit in which he lost a total of 2.14 min due to refuelling delays from a broken pressure pump, he joined the race at 6th place. He drove on the limit, made up the time and was 2nd by the start of the last lap- 35sec behind leader Manfred von Brauchitsch in a Mercedes. But Manfred had ruined his tyres by pushing very hard in the dreadful conditions- and Nuvolari was able to catch the German & take victory in front of the stunned German High Command. The small 42-year-old Italian ended up finishing in front of 8 running Silver Arrows- and 2nd placed Hans Stuck was 2min behind.
This victory is known as "The Impossible Victory". The crowd of 300,000 applauded Nuvolari, but the representatives of the Third Reich were enraged.
They had only the German hymn, but Tazio always traveled with Italian hymn on a vinyl record.

Eis o camarada da minha foto de perfil:

O piloto alemão Manfred von Brauchitsch, considerado junto com Rudolf Caracciola, Tazio Nuvolari, Hans von Stuck, Guy Moll, Bernd Rosemeyer, Luigi Fagioli, Ernst von Delius, Ferdinando Minoia, Hermann Lang, Achille Varzi e tantos outros, como um dos pioneiros daquele que é o embrião da atual Fórmula 1, no caso o Campeonato Europeu de Pilotos, cujo auge se deu nos anos 1930.

Von Brauchitsch, faleceu em 2003 aos 97 anos de idade.
