Race Report: Schleizer Dreieck, 8 August 1971

The Schleizer Dreieck is the oldest race track in Germany, having first held a race on the 10th June 1923. The track is 7.6310km long and features 22 corners, an elevation difference of 69m, and a track width of 10m. The track is based on public roads and is located near the town of Schleiz in Thuringia, it is close to the A9 autobahn, halfway between Leipzing and Bayreuth. This race meeting seemed to have been for a variety of F3 cars including races for the East German F3 regulation Wartburg powered cars, some of them competed in the 1600cc race but since the fastest lap in this race was nearly 25 seconds a lap quicker than the best time in the Wartburg races the East German cars weren’t competitive. For whatever reason a large contingent of Swedish drivers were present at the meeting.
