The great chase
Entries:
The Auto Union team was back for the German GP with four cars having sorted out the mechanical problems. According to Neubauer there was another kind of problems in the Auto Union pit as Pietsch found out that his wife Ilse was having an affair with Varzi. (Note 1)
      Mercedes-Benz did not spare their efforts either and was out in full force with 1935 cars for their regular drivers and rebuilt 1934 cars for their reserves (plus three spare cars). The team had done 1000 km tests on the track the weeks before and was confident.
      ERA driver von Delius crashed into a tree and destroyed his own car during practice. His ERA could not be repaired in time for the race, so he and Mays shared the same car for the race. This ERA was the first British entry for many years in a major GP. The ERA's engines were upgraded to 2 litre.
      There has been reports that Nuvolari raced a new 3.8 litre variant of the old Alfa Romeo Tipo B. This however has proved to be wrong! (Note 2). .
      At the end of Saturday practice, the experienced Carl Dietrich of Continental had a meeting with the Daimler-Benz team management to discuss the tyres. Since the Mercedes were the most powerful cars their tyres were more stressed, the left rear tire was worn a bit more than the right. Dietrich explained that Caracciola, with his smooth driving style would get along with one tire change, but that von Brauchitsch would definitely have to change twice.

An estimated 250,000 to 300,000 spectators showed up at Nürburgring for the German Grand Prix. They were not aware that they would see a classic, perhaps the most famous Grand Prix race of all time.
      It had been raining during the night and dark clouds and fog still hung over parts of the track as the 20 cars lined up at 10.30 AM.
      The old starting method of a waved flag was replaced with light signals. First the red light came on for Attention and Stop. Then yellow lit up meaning the start would take place within 15 seconds and at green was the start.
      There was drama from the very start of the race on a still wet circuit as Stuck's car in the first row stalled. An Auto Union mechanic (Rudolf Friedrich) foolhardly ran out to the car to help just as the lights changed and the race started. Varzi, coming from the fifth row through oil-smoke and water spray already at high speed, saw too late and could not avoid the mechanic hit the poor man who fell to the track with a fractured skull as the field went by into the Südkehre.
      Nuvolari shot immediately to the front but it was Caracciola from the third row who led the field into the Südkehre from Nuvolari, Fagioli, von Brauchitsch and Mays. At the bottom of the field were the three Auto Union cars of Stuck, Varzi and Pietsch! Stuck had been push started after the field had gone and had a hard time to work himself up the field in the water spray. Varzi, a sensitive driver, was clearly disturbed by the incident with the mechanic, and drove a lustless race.
      On lap two, Caracciola had opened up a gap of 16 seconds as Nuvolari spun at Bergwerk when trying to pass the Mercedes. Rosemeyer had passed the Mercedes cars of von Brauchitsch and Fagioli for second place. Behind them came Chiron, Nuvolari, Brivio, Varzi and Taruffi. The young Auto Union driver was in great form, closing up on Caracciola. For the next three laps it was a great duel between leading Caracciola and Rosemeyer, the duo building up a gap to another duel for third place between Fagioli, Stuck, Nuvolari and von Brauchitsch, Chiron having to retire.
1. Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)59m04.4s
2. Rosemeyer (Auto Union)59m10.0s
3. Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)59m49.1s
4. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)59m52.4s
5. v. Brauchitsch (Mercedes-Benz)1h00m02.4s
6. Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)h00m16.1s

On lap six Rosemeyer's hard driving took its toll as he came into the pits with his tyres in shreds after having left the track in a curve.
      Far behind the leading group a curious duel took place between the Auto Unions of Varzi and Pietsch. The cars were all over the track banging wheels with each other and doing every dirty trick in the book. They would finish the race in a miserable 8th and 9th place.
      Now there were three Mercedes cars at the top, Caracciola, Fagioli and von Brauchitsch. Nuvolari and Rosemeyer followed. On the ninth lap Nuvolari suddenly got inspired. In his old Alfa Romeo the "Flying Mantuan" did the first sub-11 minute race lap ever on Nürburgring and passed two Mercedes cars to take the second place. Soon thereafter the loudspeakers could tell the crowd that the Alfa was now up in the lead! At the same time he other two Ferrari cars retired with gearbox problems but all the eyes were now on the remaining Alfa.
1. Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)1h56m42.1s
2. Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)1h56m51.2s
3. Rosemeyer (Auto Union)1h56m51.4s
4. v. Brauchitsch (Mercedes-Benz)1h56m52.3s
5. Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)1h57m20.0s
6. Stuck (Auto Union)1h58m35.2s

The spectators rose as Nuvolari went by on lap 10 followed by Caracciola because Rosemeyer was back in the race again. On new tyres he had followed Nuvolari through the field and after the Südkehre he passed Caracciola, who was in pain (Note 3) and soon also had to let von Brauchitsch past.
      Rosemeyer was in top form throwing his Auto Union through the curves in impossible angles. After 11 laps, the top four came into the pits almost at the same time. The pit crews went to work, three mechanics per car. Von Brauchitsch was first out after a 47 second pitstop. Caracciola was next out (67 seconds) and then Rosemeyer (75 seconds).
      Back in the pit Nuvolari was jumping for fury. The Ferrari fuel pressure pump had broken down and the crew members were filling the tank by hand. After 2 min. 14 seconds the Alfa finally left the pit in sixth place. Fagioli was in the lead but on the next lap he also had to do his pitstop (51 seconds) as was Stuck (49 seconds).
      After the pit stops Von Brauchitsch was leading from Rosemeyer but the Auto Union driver was soon back to the pits with fuel feed problems. Caracciola was also falling back and incredibly Nuvolari was back into second place after just one lap, the driver racing at the limit. Situation after 15 laps:
1. v. Brauchitsch (Mercedes-Benz)2h51m36.2s
2. Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo) 2h53m03.4s
3. Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz) 2h53m15.2s
4. Stuck (Auto Union 2h54m29.4s
5. Rosemeyer (Auto Union) 2h55m02.4s
6. Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)2h57m10.4s

Von Brauchitsch, too, determined to win his own Grand Prix, was driving at full speed, his driving style putting great pressure on his tyres. On lap 14 he led by 86 seconds, on the next lap 88, then 77, 63, 47, 43, 32 seconds.
      As tyre wear had been low on the wet and drying circuit von Brauchitsch's tyres had lasted well during the early part on the race and he had changed to a one stop tactics. However as the track dried out the tyre temperature rised and at the end of lap 19, the white breaker strip was already visible at von Brauchitsch's left rear tire. Since lap 14, Neubauer had given him repeatedly signs to slow down. At the end of lap 20, when von Brauchitsch passed his pits, he pointed towards his rear tires. Neubauer interpreted his sign language that the driver would stop the following lap. To the disbelief of a stunned Mercedes team, Brauchitsch then passed the grand stands at full speed on the end of lap 21. He must have changed his mind, believing more in his own luck than in his mechanics speed.
      Von Brauchitsch started the last lap 35 seconds in front of the Alfa, but with his tyres in miserably shape. As the Mercedes went into the Karussell Kurve the left rear tyre blew. Von Brauchitsch continued on the rim only to have to see the Alfa Romeo pass and go on to win in front of the astonished spectators. With half a kilometer to go a second tyre blew on the Mercedes and a crying von Brauchitsch had to see three more cars pass before he could get his car over the line. For a second there was silence, but then the Italian was met by tremendous cheers from the crowd.
      There was an embarrassing moment at the victory ceremonies as the organizers confident for a German victory had only the German national anthem available. Fortunately Nuvolari always brought his own record to the races!
      This was Nuvolari's greatest race because with a car lacking 100 horses to his strongest foes, he had beaten eight German cars, Lang being the only German retirement. Von Brauchitsch however would probably had been the winner hadn't the Mercedes team neglected to order him into the pits sometimes around on lap 18.

Footnote:
1. According to Neubauer this was the event when Pietsch found out that his wife was having a affair with Varzi and the the two drivers had had a private duel during the race, banging wheels. However, according to Pietsch in the book Doppelsieg: "Neubauer had made this whole story up. Because Varzi had fallen in love only at the Nürburgring, at the Grand Prix. At this point of time nobody besides the two (Ilse and Varzi) knew about this of course, not me and especially Neubauer not at all. I learned about the affair only in the fall when my former wife told me." Click here for biography of Ilse Pietsch

2. Simon Moore in an article in Motorsport (May 2008). A special thanks to Francesco Ferrandino for providing me with that article.

3. For that reason Dr. Gläser, the medical caretaker of the German drivers, immediately took care of Caracciola at the finish. Caracciola complained about attacks of weakness, which at times had become so intense during the race, that at times he could not make out the circuit. For a time he had seen blue and black in front of his eyes, he had seen double images and had only continued to save at least one good place for his team. Dr. Gläser finally diagnosed that Caracciola had a large tape-worm. Monday evening at the Hotel Eifeler Hof in Adenau, on doctor's orders, he ate a sour marinated herring and on Tuesday he was released from his bad companion.

4. With such a major race one would expect agreement in the reports regarding the results but that is far from true. Nuvolaris time, Motorsport: 4h08m39.0s, Motor & Sport & Automobil Revue: 4h08m40.1s, Paul Sheldon: 4h08m04.1s (printing error) , Il Littoriale & Födisch/Völker/Behrdt: 4h08m04.2s

Private driver beats Scuderia Ferrari
The race was run in two heats plus a 15 lap final.
Entries:
Once again the Maserati team was expected to show up with their new V-8RI cars and once again there was disappointment as Étancelin and Zehender came with their old 6C-34's to face Chiron's and Comottis's Alfas. The race was on the same day as Coppa Ciano so the Ferrari team was once more divided.

When the final started it was Étancelin who took the command chased by Lehoux, Comotti and Zehender. Sommer was advancing through the field while both the 6C-34 cars of Zehender and leading Étancelin had engine problems and Comotti was out with a broken rear axle. Lehoux went into the lead but soon the Maserati driver could see Sommer's blue Alfa in his mirror. Lehoux had to see his victory chances slip away as Sommer passed but worse was to come.
      On the last lap Lehoux run out of fuel and had to see one car after the other pass as he fruitlessly tried to push his Maserati uphill to the line. So it was the day of the privateers with Sommer, "Raph" and Hartmann on the top, Chiron finished fourth, he had never been near the top with a misfiring engine and an extra 3 minute pitstop.

This was a track where Nuvolari in the past years had shown his supremacy. In 1934 he had had to give up to Varzi's Alfa but in 1935 he was again in a class of his own taking the lead from Brivio and Siena (Maserati 6C-34) and holding it to the end and also making the fastest lap. order after half distance: 1h42m00.5s

The Voiturette race started early in the morning. Seaman was the only ERA driver in a field that mostly consisted of Maseratis. Tuffanelli (Maserati) took the lead only to crash on the first lap. The ballot had put Seaman on the last row in the grid but even then he was able to lead the race by half a minute after the first lap. He then went on to win the race in dominant style.

Varzi's second Auto Union victory
Entries:
The Mercedes team did not enter the Coppa Acerbo and the "works" Maseratis were also missing so the Ferrari team, who was out in force, had "only" the Auto Unions to worry about. One of the German cars was out even before the race started as Stuck's car during final practice cracked a cylinder head.

A chicane had been built on the Montesilvano straight but it did not prevent the Auto Unions from being in a class of their own. Nuvolari took the start followed by Chiron but on the second lap Varzi took over the lead and held it to the finish taking a convincing victory. Behind him Rosemeyer had a more dramatic race. He had started in the last row of the grid but soon forced himself up to second place. But while trying to pass Nuvolari he made a mistake and run off the track and had to come in for new tyres.
      Order after four laps:
1. Varzi (Auto Union)42m42s
2. Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)44m46s
3. Brivio (Alfa Romeo)45m36s
4. Tadini (Alfa Romeo)45m38s
5. Comotti (Alfa Romeo)45m56s
6. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)
7. Rosemeyer (Auto Union)

Later in the race Rosemeyer locked his brakes and run off the track again. This time the car flew over an ditch and continued with high speed between a telegraph pole and bridge parapet before coming back to the track again. A later checkout of the place showed that the distance between the pole and the bridge was just 5 cm wider than the car! Situation after 10 laps:
1. Varzi (Auto Union)1h51m19s
2. Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)1h55m05.2s
3. Rosemeyer (Auto Union)1h57m56.4s
4. Brivio (Alfa Romeo)1h58m03.8s
5. Comotti (Alfa Romeo)1h58m48.4s
6. Tadini (Alfa Romeo)
7. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)

Those incidents did not hinder Auto Union from finishing 1-2 in front of the Ferrari Alfas. Chiron retired on lap 11 and Nuvolari on lap 13 so Brivio was the best Alfa driver in third place. Both Maseratis also retired.
