    Race is held at the Nurburgring circuit, around the village of Nurburg, about an hour's drive from Cologne.

    Race took place on 25 July 1937.

    "Rosemyer" should read Rosemeyer (Bernd Rosemeyer).

    Three mentions of "Carraciolla" should read Caracciola (Rudolf Caracciola).

    Caracciola wins, driving a Mercedes-Benz.
