Gert Schreiber’s memories of the race;

“I remember this July day in 1976 as one of the hottest days ever, the temperature inside the black Scirocco was well above 50 degrees Celsius!!! I made my own cooling system: wringing a towel filled up with ice crunches around my neck gave me some advantage for the first laps, the rest was incredible.  I stepped out of the car being totally wet from neck to feet, I’ve never ever had a race or rallye like this again.”

Manfred Winkelhock three-wheeling to victory.
