The ninth 1000 km race on the Nürburgring , also Int. ADAC 1000 km race, Nürburgring , took place on May 19, 1963 and was the seventh round of the sports car world championship of that year.

Before the race

The 1000 km race in 1963 was the ninth long-distance race to be held over this distance on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring . The first event took place in 1953 and ended with a victory for Alberto Ascari and Giuseppe Farina on a Ferrari 375MM [1] . Since there was no 1000 km race in 1954 and 1955, the 1963 race was the ninth. In 1963 the sports car world championship had grown into a racing series with 22 races. However, the series was divided into four class ratings and not all classes were eligible to start in all races. In addition to mountain races , this year countedwith the rally Wiesbaden even a rally for the world championship.

The 1000 km race was the seventh race of the season, which began on February 17 with the Daytona 3-hour race . Two major sports car races, in which points were awarded for all class ratings, had already been driven up to the Nürburgring. When 12-hour race at Sebring won John Surtees and Ludovico Scarfiotti on a plant - Ferrari 250P [2] . The Targa Florio won Joakim Bonnier and Carlo-Maria Abate [3] . It was the third success for Porsche after 1959 and 1960at the Sicilian road race .

The organizer received 93 reports for the race at the Nürburgring. After several training runs, 67 vehicles took part in the race. The Ferrari works team, which came to Germany with three Ferrari 250Ps, was the main favorite for overall victory. Nino Vaccarella destroyed one of the three works cars in a training accident, so that only two cars could qualify for the race. The mid-engined 12-cylinder racing cars were driven by Willy Mairesse and John Surtees as well as Mike Parkes and Ludovico Scarfiotti. The other Ferraris at the start had only registered private teams. The entry list included the Ferrari 250 GTOs fromPierre Noblet and David Piper . The only serious opponent of Ferrari to victory in the overall standings was the works team of Porsche since both Aston Martin and the Maserati teams had waived participation to focus entirely on the 24-hour race at Le Mans to focus . Porsche had won the Targa Florio a few weeks earlier with the 718 WRS Spyder and, despite a performance deficit of more than 120 hp compared to the Ferraris, expected good chances at the Nürburgring as well. Race director Fritz Huschke von Hanstein engaged the American Phil Hillas a guest driver who formed a team with Joakim Bonnier . Hill, who won the Formula 1 drivers' championship with Ferrari in 1961 , was divorced from Scuderia at the end of 1962 in a dispute and gladly accepted Porsche's request to drive the 718 Coupé (718 GTR). Herbert Linge and Edgar Barth sat in the second Porsche 718, a Spyder .

Alpine owner Jean Rédélé brought the new Alpine M63 to the track from France . Lloyd Casner and José Rosinski drove the car. At Alpine it was hoped that the type would be used successfully for the first time. René Bonnet also came from France with the René Bonnet Djets , which started in the class for prototypes up to 1.3 liters displacement.

The race

Confusion at the Le Mans start

At the Le Mans start there was some confusion from the starter. Some drivers misinterpreted its signal routing and ran to the car, although the start was not yet approved. Others, on the other hand, stopped in the middle of the road because they thought of a false start. Despite the confusion that caused some of the back starters to move up a long way at the beginning of the race, the race management decided not to abort and let the race continue.

Race decision due to accidents

To the surprise of the many spectators, almost 250,000 along the route are said to have seen the race, none of the favorites from the first lap came back to the start and finish as the leader, but the German Peter Lindner in his Jaguar E-Type Lightweight . Lindner had fought for the lead in a breakneck driving style, but had to surrender it to the two Ferrari 250Ps on the second lap - John Surtees and Ludovico Scarfiotti drove the starting turns. Lindner, and later his teammate Peter Nöcker , were able to stay in the top field for a long time before decreasing oil pressure forced the duo to give up. [4]

On the 15th lap the race seemed decided to the disadvantage of Ferrari. Mike Parkes, who had taken over the car with the starting number 111 from Scarfiotti, risked too much in the Aremberg curve when lapping a slower participant, got his left rear side part against the wall of an underpass and threw it back onto the track, so that the one closely following Willy Mairesse could no longer evade and damaged the front end of his 250P. Parkes' car was so badly damaged that he could not continue the race. Mairesse was able to start his car again and drive to the pits, but lost more than six minutes on Hill and Bonnier's Porsche. Therefore and because Mairesse subsequently had to spare the ailing car and drove far slower than necessary, The Porsche's victory seemed almost certain. But on lap 20 Phil Hill slipped off the track in the same place as Parkes five laps earlier after a gear shift error and retired, whereby Willy Mairesse and John Surtees still won the race. The real surprise, however, was second place overall fromJean Guichet and Pierre Noblet in their Ferrari 250 GTO, who won superiorly in their class. Third place went to Carlo-Maria Abate and Umberto Maglioli in the front-engined Ferrari 250TRI of the Scuderia Serenissima [5] . John Surtees made the ring double that year. A few weeks after his success at the 1000 km race he won on a Ferrari 156 at the Grand Prix of Germany F1.

The best Porsche at the finish was the works 356 B 2000 GS with Le Mans body by Hans-Joachim Walter and Ben Pon in fourth place overall. The duo became a team of four by the end of the race, as Herbert Linge and Edgar Barth supported the two teammates with their driving skills after their failure. Alpine achieved a decent placement in eleventh place overall when the M63 was used for the first time.

None of the Abarths finished. All three Abarth-Simca 1300 Bialbero failed. One vehicle from the four Bonnets made it into the final ranking. Roland Charriére and Robert Bouharde reached 22nd place overall, which also meant third place in the prototype class up to 1.3-liter displacement. This class was won by the British team Elite. The Lotus factory team was registered under this name . Dangers became the Lotus Elite with the number seven originally by John Wagstaff and Gil Baird. After the elite with starting number six, David Hobbs and Trevor Taylor, retireddrove, a team of four made it into the final standings because Hobbs and Taylor had taken over the car from Wagstaff and Baird. The team reached ninth place in the overall standings.
