  • Description

    AT ZELL AM SEE NEAR SALZBURG, ON SUNDAY CARS AND MOTORCYCLES FROM ALL OVER AUSTRIA GATHERED TO TAKE PART IN THE ANNUAL RACES ON ICE.

    THIS WAS THE EIGHTH PROFESSOR DR PORSCHE MEMORIAL RACE-MEETING. NORMALLY THE RACES TAKE PLACE ON THE FROZEN ZELLER LAKE, BUT THIS YEAR AUTHORITIES WOULD NOT ALLOW THE LAKE TO BE USED BECAUSE OF THE BAD CONDITION OF THE ICE. INSTEAD THE RACES WERE HELD ON A SPECIALLY PROPARED ICETRACK AT A SMALL AIRPORT NEARBY.

    ONE OF THE HIGH POINTS OF THE TWELVE RACE MEETING WAS THE SPEEDWAY RACE. THE MASSIVE 500 cc MOTORCYCLES HAD SPECIAL SPIKED TYRES TO GRIP THE ICE. THE WINNER WAS P. KNOTT OF BAD TOLZ, RIDING A JAWA.

    IN THE AUTOMOBILE SECTION THE MOST EXCITING RACE WAS THE LAST ONE, FOR FORMULA FIVE RACING CARS, WHICH WAS WON FRANZ SCHOENBAUER IN CAR NUMBER TWO.
