    The date of the event was 6 March 1934.

    Despite the title card, "Avus" should read AVUS.

    Also despite the title card, "Hans von Stuck" was MUCH more commonly known as Hans Stuck.

    Now that issue dates have been added I can see that my date of 6 March 1934 must clearly be wrong! So forget that!!
