Sidecar racing and a crash sequence on the starting grid. All photographs taken by myself with a 35mm Iloca Rapid rangefinder camera. The Iloca was produced from 1952 to 1959 by Wilhelm Witt of Hamburg. The name "Rapid" came from the adoption of a rapid winding lever which proved to be very useful in capturing this event.
Dear Sir ! Great pictures ! Great memories ! The racing in these days is something way different from to day! I have to say, however exiting racing was, it had a very sad side to it, as the racing , both car and bikes was not safe do to the unsafe tracks for one thing ! Thank you for showing and sharing these images !I am a racing fan since the 50s & onward !Take care ! Herbert Jahn.
