Description:

Neuware - 1969 - eine Rennsaison mit Porsche - Man spricht noch immer von der Ära der Mercedes-Silberpfeile, von ihrem kam-sah-siegte-Nimbus, den ein hochwertiger technischer Apparat ermöglicht hat und den die Erinnerung glorifiziert, man preist die deutsche Gründlichkeit, denkt an Fangio, Moss und den dicken Neubauer, der mit Signaltafeln Regie führte. Ohne Zweifel hat Mercedes in den Jahren 1954 und 1955 das Maximum dessen ausgeschöpft, was im Rennsport technisch und fahrerisch möglich war. Inzwischen ist man auf dem Mond gelandet und fährt in 7:45 um den Nürburgring. Das Maximum im Autorennsport leistete 1969 jedoch die Firma Porsche. 'Uff', sagte der Monteur eines amerikanischen Rennstalles, als die fünf Wagen starke Porsche-Armada in die Daytona-Arena geschoben wurde; 'wenn es stimmt, dass Porsche nur ein kleines Werk ist, hätte Ford seinerzeit mit 30 Werkswagen aufkreuzen müssen.' Porsches Ziel war hoch. Es hieß 'Marken-Weltmeisterschaft'. Der Preis spielte anscheinend keine Rolle. Computer rechneten den neun Vertragspiloten (einmal waren es sogar zwölf) für jede Rennstrecke eine Optimalzeit vor den Charakter, die Fahrweise und den Ehrgeiz dieser Menschen auf einen Nenner zu bringen, hätte auch das Elektronengehirn nicht geschafft. Den Gegner zu umzingeln, ihn zu walzen und mit Hilfe der hauseigenen Technik zu schlagen war das Ziel. Von den zehn Läufen Marken-WM gewann Porsche sieben, sechs davon durch 'technischen k.o.'. Dreimal schlug man sich selbst k. o., und bevor die Zeit auch diese Siege glorifiziert und die Niederlagen aus dem Gedächtnis gestrichen hat, möchte ich den Film der Langstreckenrennen 1969 noch einmal abrollen lassen unretuschiert und im Originalton, so wie ich ihn erlebte. 232 pp. Deutsch.

Book Description View Aug 2013, 2013. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 301x248x28 mm. Neuware - We still talk about the era of Mercedes Silver Arrows, about their came, saw, conquered aura, made possible by a high class technical organisation and glorified by memories. We praise German thoroughness, think of Fangio, Moss and the rotund Neubauer directing things with signal boards. Without a doubt Mercedes pushed things to the maximum possible in motor racing during the years 1954 and 1955, be it technical or with regard to drivers. In the meantime man has landed on the moon and the infamous Nurburgring North Loop has been lapped in 7m 45s. In 1969 though, the ultimate in motor racing has been accomplished by the Porsche Company. 232 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783940306258

Apparently the question of cost didnt enter the equation. Nine contracted drivers (even twelve at one event) were provided with optimal lap times calculated by computers to reduce characters, driving styles and ambitions of these people to a common denominator was beyond the capabilities of a an electronic device though. The goal was to surround the opponents, steamroll them and beat them with the help of technology belonging to the firm. Porsche won seven out of ten Championship heats, six of them by a technical knockout. Three times Porsche knocked itself out and before the ravages of time glorify the wins and erases the losses from memory, I would like to unwind the movie of the 1969 endurance races once again not retouched and with its original soundtrack, just like I experienced everything.Helmut Zwickl | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 1765 gr | 301x248x28 mm | 232 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9783940306258
