Gert Schreiber comments;

“At Sylt I started from 6th pos, Dietrich Hueck from “Team Heydt Korn” was one row behind. After his row the great chaos broke out, I think 5-6 cars hit another and there immediately was a big gap from the first 8 to the field. Unluckily my team mate was pressing very hard on me and he forced me into one of the tyre chicanes at the infield of the airfield. Result: my steering in right corners was very hard, it was like driving a 40 ton lorry without power steering. At the end I had not calculated enough gasoline to finish because the  race control added 2 additional laps because of the starting chaos.”
