  • Description

    Mechanics checked the engines and controls of the Italian beats a German team was using with German and American engines on the Woarthersee Austria May 11,
    high octane spirit was poured into the tanks....
    german driver Rolf Goetze adjusted his helmet.....

    and set off to try to break his own Class Ds (12 seamiles) record of 102.2 kilometres per hour.

    Everyone had been waiting for the wind to drip - for high water [QUERY], low air temperature and high atmospheric pressure
    and then away he goes, skimming the water like a Nestral
    Stopwatches soon confirmed it as a record breaking run of 105.022 kph.

    six records were broken during this day's runs on the Woarthersee, the nearest lake on which the German team could get permission to run these tests
