Details: The legendary hill-climb track at the Schauinsland Mountain near Freiburg was internationally famous. The first hill-climbing race took place there in 1925. In the following years the race grew to be an international competition. Auto Union would bring it's Type C with Hans Stuck behind the wheel Bernd Rose Meyer and Mercedes-Benz with Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred v. Brauchitsch and Hermann Lang. The race-track was 12 km long, leading all the way to the top of Schauinsland Pass with 178 turns for drivers to negotiate and an ascent of 780 meters on slopes that could be 12˚ uphill. At the end of the race, Hans Stuck lived up to his nickname, driving his #111 Auto Union Type C with twin-tire rear wheels to victory by one second ahead of his team mate Bernd Rose Meyer, who was also on a Type C, but with single-tire rear wheels.
