V MASARYKUV OKRUH
Brno (CS), 30 September 1934
17 laps x 29.142 km (18.108 mi) = 495.4 km (307.8 mi)
Fagioli shines, Stuck scores
Hans Stuck in an Auto Union and Luigi Fagioli with a Mercedes-Benz were the main opponent for victory in the Czech Grand Prix, taking turns at the lead. After the pit stops Fagioli managed to open up a gap but then had to
make an unscheduled pit stop, leaving Stuck to win the race. Nuvolari in the new 6-cylinder Maserati was able to keep third position in a tight duel with Caracciola's Mercedes. The rest of the competitors
were also runners.
The Ceskoslovensky Automobilovy Klub pro Moravu a Slezsko organized their fifth international Masaryk automobile race or V mezinárodní závod automobilu na Masarykove okruhu.
The race was devided into two classes. The top three finishers of the Grand Prix class received 80,000, 40,000, and 20,000 Kčs (Czechoslovak korunas) and a golden medal.
15,000, 10,000 and 5000 Kčs and a silver medal went to positions 4 to 6 and the 7th finisher received a bronze medal. The top three finishers in the voiturette class received
15,000, 10,000 and 5000 Kčs and a silver medal. (80,000 Kčs was about $3450 or £685 back then).
One of the special prizes was donated by Mme. Eliška Junková a.k.a. Elizabeth Junek, possibly the greatest female GP driver of all time.
All the major teams were present. It was expected that the narrow tricky circuit with its up and downhill sections would fit the German cars with their independent suspension. Auto Union entered Stuck and zu Leiningen
with Wilhelm Sebastian was given a chance in the third car, replacing Momberger who was still suffering from arthritis.
Daimler Benz entered Caracciola, Fagioli and Henne with Geier as reserve.
Scuderia Ferrari had three P3s for Varzi, Chiron and Comotti and Bugatti entered two T59s for Benoist and Wimille.
The Maserati trailer arrived with the new works 6C-34 car for Nuvolari and a private car, another 6C-34, bought from the Bologna factory by local car mechanic Josef Brázdil with money provided by his manager
Štefan Marciš. In the early entry lists Brázdil was listed to drive an Alfa Romeo. As a driver Brázdil was a total novice. Contemporary magazines claim that the money for the car was in fact borrowed
from Marciš' fiancèe but the engagement was broken off after a fight and the furious lady had now taken legal action to get her money back. On Wednesday when practice started both Josef Brázdil and his manager,
unable to pay back the money, found themselves in jail. Nuvolari, who wanted to see both new Maseratis come to good use, and Chiron appealed to authorities to release Brázdil so he could take part in the Grand Prix,
returning to jail after the race.
Now that's one variant of the story. Another given by Erwin Tragatsch in Automobil Chronik (3/1972) is that Brázdil was jailed for some other economic oddities and that a blond lady with an American accent in fact
was the one who paid the bail to get Brázdil released.
Eugene Bjørnstad, who had been denied the start a week earlier in Spain because of an overweight car, had now no problems getting his Monza through scrutiny.
Four private Bugattis to be raced by Hungarian Laszlo Hartmann and local drivers Pohl, Pavlíček and Holešák completed the entry list.
On Wednesday Stuck showed the potential of the Auto Union pulling off a 14m08s lap, over 16 seconds faster than Chiron's lap record. Fagioli and Caracciola also drowe fast laps.
Early around 8 a.m. on Friday morning before the track was officially closed for practice, Brázdil, who now was out from prison, went out with the Maserati and disappeared.
On his very first practice lap Brázdil had, on a straight somewhere between Žebětìn and Ostrovačice, at 200 km/h got two wheels into a ditch. The car hit a tree, turned into the woods, and
then hit another tree that put the car into a series of somersaults. The tank section of the car got loose. Brázdil was thrown out and died immediately with a broken spine. An investigation found no sign of braking trails
and no problems with the car and claimed it must have been suicide! Or was it just foolishness combined with total inexperience? Whatever the truth the Josef Brázdil story remains one of the most bizarre ever in
Grand Prix racing.
During practice Stuck lowered his time from Wednesday to 13m45s. Wimille and the Mercedes trio of Caracciola, Fagioli and Henne also practiced for several laps.
This was the "silly season" when driver contracts are made. During practice Nuvolari tried out the Auto Union, doing a lap in 14m15s with a car completely new to him. At the end of practice Stuck could be seen on the track
trying out the Mercedes-Benz, doing a alp in 14m05s.
During Saturday practice Nuvolari did a lap around 14 min. Caracciola and Chiron were also among those seen practicing.
It was a beautiful sunny September morning and a giant crowd had gathered for the last major Grand Prix of the season, the Masaryk Circuit Race at Brno. Estimations go from 100,000-250,000 spectators
(Venables claims 350,000!). 20,000 car owners were trying to find a parking place.
The grid positions had been drawn by ballot and looked like this:
At 10.30 a.m. the flag dropped for the 17 Grand Prix cars. They were followed two minutes later by the 15 voiturettes (see a separate race account).
The GP start was messy with Varzi and Chiron having wheel spins creating a cloud of blue smoke. Fagioli went by on the left side, Stuck on the right side while Caracciola tried to find a gap in the middle. When the drivers
had sorted themselves out from the tangle Stuck was in the lead followed by Fagioli and that is how they finished the first lap:
|1.||Stuck (Auto Union)||13m55.1s|
|2.||Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)||+ 13s|
|5.||Varzi (Alfa Romeo)||+44s|
|6.||zu Leiningen (Auto Union)|
|7.||Chiron (Alfa Romeo)|
|8.||Comotti (Alfa Romeo)|
|12.||Sebastian (Auto Union)|
They were followed by the two local Bugatti drivers but Pavlíček had to retire soon. Bjørnstad had had to stop on the first lap for repairs.
Fagioli drove the second lap in 13m42s compared to Stuck's 13m50s, Nuvolari's 13m51s and Caracciola's 13m55s. Fagioli had closed the gap to the leader to 5 seconds while Nuvolari was 16s behind Fagioli and Caracciola another 6
seconds behind while the rest of the field was unable to keep the pace of the top four.
On the third lap Fagioli lost ten seconds to Stuck, who had made a 13m39.5s lap, but he was able to close the gap again to 5 seconds on lap four. Caracciola passed Nuvolari for third place but the new Maserati was fast and the
Mantuan retook his position half a lap later. After five laps the order was as follows:
|1.||Stuck (Auto Union)||1h08m59s|
|5.||Varzi (Alfa Romeo)||1h11m58s|
|6.||zu Leiningen (Auto Union)||1h12m56s|
|7.||Chiron (Alfa Romeo)||1h13m03s|
|8.||Comotti (Alfa Romeo)||1h14m02s|
The works Bugattis were struggling. Wimille was the first to call it a day on lap six with engine failure and Benoist would retire as well two laps later. Meanwhile local driver Holešák was called in as he was too slow and
hindered the other drivers.
After six laps Fagioli briefly held a lead after he had driven a lap in 13m32s against Stuck's 13m37s but on the next lap the German had regained control, opening up a 13s gap to the Italian.
Further down the field the situation remained unchanged apart from the fact that zu Leiningen was closing up on Varzi. The order after 7 laps was: Stuck, Fagioli, Nuvolari, Caracciola, Varzi, zu Leiningen, Chiron, Comotti,
Henne and Sebastian.
After eight laps the drivers began to make their pit stops. Stuck was the first driver in with a 59 seconds stop for fuel only, rejoining the race in third position behind Fagioli and Nuvolari. Caracciola made a 1m22s stop and zu Leiningen
was in as well for 1m01s.
The rough roads of the Brno circuit took the toll of both, cars and drivers. On the ninth lap the Scuderia Ferrari Alfas of Comotti and Chiron struck trouble and both had to retire.
After having held the lead for just one lap Fagioli made his pit stop (1m01s) as well as Nuvolari (1m05s) and Varzi (1m08s).
After ten laps Stuck was leading Fagioli by 27 seconds but on the next lap the Mercedes driver with new rear tyres did a 13m28s against Stuck's 13m42s, closing the gap to 13 seconds.
Meanwhile the condition of the track deteriorated and especially bad was the situation in the Ostrovačice sector where Caracciola destroyed a wheel and had to retire. Nuvolari had an incident there as well but was able to recover
from the slide and continue the race.
On lap 12 Fagioli drove the fastest lap of the race with a time of 13m17.2s and took the lead from a struggling Stuck, who only managed a lap of 13m40s. Fagioli's 13th lap was almost as fast as his twelfth, while Stuck's lap
times were down to to 13m51s. The gap to the leading Mercedes was now 42 seconds and Fagioli was on his way to a clear victory.
Then suddenly after the 14th lap Fagioli made an unscheduled pit stop with wet spark plugs. The Mercedes mechanics worked feverishly and were already assisting the car away by pushing when Stuck appeared. Fagioli rejoined the
race six seconds behind the Auto Union. But things were still not well with Fagioli's Mercedes. On the next lap he lost 40 seconds to Stuck and after lap 16 the gap was 1m42s.
Fagioli lost more than a minute on the last lap and Stuck could take the flag with an overwhelming lead. Fagioli was still able to secure second position ahead of Nuvolari, who took a fine third position in the new 6 cylinder
Maserati. Third place was the best he could do that day. The latest news told him that his son Giorgio now seemed to be recovering from Typhoid Fever while Nuvolari had beaten Varzi's Ferrari, he was probably rather
pleased. He was followed to the flag by zu Leiningen, Varzi, Geier, who had taken over the Mercedes from Henne, who was not feeling well, Sebastian and Lazlo Hartmann.
The fastest laps for the top five were: Fagioli 13m17.2s, Stuck 13m27.9s, Nuvolari 13m55.8s, Caracciola 13m52.0s, Varzi 14m01.0s.

Voiturette season closes
The voiturette class raced simultaneously with the Grand Prix class. Giuseppe "Nino" Farina totally dominated the event, leading from start to finish.
The Voiturette race was started two minutes after the GP cars but the race was 2 laps shorter. Even then it was a very long race for the voiturette class.
The only Maserati in the race was driven by promising newcomer Giuseppe Farina with Scuderia Subalpina. He was being challenged by seven Bugatti drivers. As usual it is hard to find out which cars were T37As and which where T51s.
At the start were two Wikov made by the Czech company Wichterie & Kovarik. Also entered was a Czech version of the Fiat Balilla built by Walter as the type Junior SS and two "Z" named type "Z13", with an flat 8-cylinder
1500 cc two-stroke engine, manufactured in Brno.
Eyston had changed his Magic Magnette for a normal bodied K3 while Richard Seaman raced the other MG. Seaman's Lagonda that towed the MG to the race broke down on the way to Brno but Seaman was able to
borrow an old Fiat from Whitney Straight.
Missing from the list of entries was Hugh Hamilton who had died a month earlier at the Swiss GP.
The 15 voiturette cars were lined up behind the Grand Prix cars like this. For some reason cars 40 and 42 swapped position on the grid (numbers painted on the tarmac showed #40 in the first row and #42 in the second).
Two minutes after the GP class start the voiturette race was flagged off with Farina immediately taking the lead chased by several Bugattis. Naturally the contemporary reporters were mostly concerned about the
Grand Prix class, therefore it is hard to find much information about the voiturette event. But after five laps the situaton was as follows:
And after 10 laps:
Farina showed the crowd that his voiturette class win at Biella four weeks earlier had been no freak victory. He dominated the Voiturette class leading the race
from start to finish. Burgaller finished second.
All contemporary results sources show 3rd position to be shared between Sojka and Schmidt but the race for positions 2-4 was obviously a tight one and there seem to be no time for a any pit stop/driver change.
Also those sources shows Sojka rather than Schmidt as a retirement.
(A scenario where Sojka and Schmidt might had swapped cars just before the start could be an answer to this mystery as well as to the odd grid position change but that is pure speculation.)
1. Grid according to AZ Motorwelt 9/1934. The only pictures/film available show the situation after the start when the field is already mixed up, making it hard to draw conclusions.
2. There was contradiction between the published results found in the various contemporary sources, showing different times.
Published here is the results from Tagesbote, the Brno daily paper that should be reliable.

The Devil's Trampoline
The second Rio de Janeiro GP was once again raced on the twisty Gávea track. Apart from all the local drivers there were many international entries including
Argentinan drivers Rosa, Zatuszek, McCarthy, Riganti, Fernandez, Dall'Ochio, Carú, Coppoli, Lozzano, Blanco, Malcom, Murro, Milone and Malusardi
Italan driver Di Bartolomeo and Portuguese Santos Soeiro.
Scheduled for the day 30th September the race had to be postponed to 3rd October because of bad weather.
The race finally started early Wednesday morning in bright sunshine. Rose took an early lead from Landi and Marconcini.
Marconcini fell back, Landi had to retire and Crespi took over second position followed by Lo Turco.
Corrêa who had drawn a bad start position was slowly but surely working his way up throught the field and after 13 laps he took over the lead.
He was followed by Crespi with Landi dropping back to third. Chasing Corrêa, Crespi then hit a post on the Arthur Araripe Street and crashed badly,
the driver sadly succuming to his injuries. That left Corrêa in the lead from Rosa and Lopes. The latter two swapped positions on lap 23.
So Corrêa took te victory after having started from last position in his quite odd looking Ford special.
