The tenth 1000 km race on the Nürburgring , also known as the ADAC 1000 km race, Nürburgring , took place on May 31, 1964 and was the seventh round of the sports car world championship of that year.

Before the race

The 1000 km race on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring in 1964 was already the seventh race that counted in the 1964 World Sports Car Championship . The racing series comprised 20 racing events this year and included races as diverse as the Le Mans 24-hour race , the Roßfeld hill climb and the Tour de France for automobiles . The race in Germany was after the 2000 km race in Daytona [1] - the predecessor event of the 24-hour race there - the 12-hour race in Sebring [2] and the Targa Floriothe fourth sports car race of the year in which sports car prototypes and GT vehicles were allowed to start at the same time.

Daytona were Pedro Rodriguez and Phil Hill on the North American Racing Team reported 64 Ferrari 250 GTO / victorious; in Sebring won Mike Parkes and Umberto Maglioli in work - Ferrari 275P . Antonio Pucci and Colin Davis triumphed for Porsche at the Targa . [3] The last World Cup race before the Nürburgring race was the hillclimb Consuma that the total victory of Odoardo Govoni on a Maserati Tipo 60ended. [4]

The race

Confusion about Herbert Müller

119 vehicles (including three training cars) were registered for the race, 81 started, 46 finished within the classification. [5] [6]

There is some confusion in the start and result lists around the Swiss racing driver Herbert Müller . The native of western Switzerland, born in Reinach , represents two different teams in these lists. On one hand, he drove as a partner of André Knörr a Porsche 904 GTS the Scuderia Filipinetti , on the other hand he is a partner of Tommy Spychiger a plant - 1300 Bialbero Abarth-Simca have piloted the # 22 out the standings. [7] It is unclear whether it was actually one and the same driver. However, a double start cannot be completely ruled out; the sporting regulations would have made it possible.

Fatal accidents during training

The prototype and GT vehicles that had been driven in the major sports car races since the early 1960s were technologically advanced in almost all classes and, for the most part, real racing cars. The era of converted road cars was finally over. These cars were fast vehicles. In order to be able to move them flawlessly at high speeds, the drivers required both talent and routine. At the Nürburgring, the difficult track conditions were an additional challenge.

The German Rudolf-Wilhelm Moser and the Briton Brian Hetreed died in accidents during training for the 1000 km race. Moser was no longer a newcomer to the Nürburgring. He had contested his first 1000 km race in 1957 . His best result was 13th in the 1000 km race at the Nürburgring in 1962 . In addition to his appearances in the 1000 km race, Moser mainly drove sports car races in Germany. [8] Hetreed had started his career in 1963 and had a seventh place at Silverstone International as the best result . [9] [10]

Hetreed died after an accident in the mine on the way to the hospital. His Aston Martin DP214 went off the track, fell over an embankment and rolled over several times. Moser spun in the Antoniusbuche section and crashed into a vehicle standing on the edge of the track; he died at the scene of the accident.

In general, the entire race event was overshadowed by many serious accidents. There were more than ten incidents in training alone. In addition to the two fatally injured drivers, six other teams could not take part in the race because their cars were partly largely destroyed, including the AC Cobra from Jack Sears and Frank Gardner and the Lotus Elan 26R from Mike Spence and Peter Arundell . In the race, there were just after the start of a collision of several vehicles, by Jean-Pierre Beltoise ( René Bonnet Djet ) and the Porsche 904 of Léon Dernier /André Pilette retired.

The training accidents of Vincenzo Arena and Edgar Barth went relatively lightly . Arena lost control of his AC Cobra in the left turn behind the Brünnchen and hit two trees with the driver's side, but got away with broken ribs. Edgar Barth overturned in his Porsche 904 eight-cylinder into the interior of the south bend after the brake system was ineffective due to air in the brake lines despite the newly installed brake pads. The roof of the coupé came off and Barth was thrown out of the car. However, he only suffered contusions and was able to start the race with a replacement car the next day. [11] [12]

Teams, vehicles and drivers

A decade after the first 1000 km race in the Eifel , which ended in 1953 with a victory for Giuseppe Farina and Alberto Ascari in the Ferrari 375MM , the event had established itself as one of the most important international endurance races. In Europe, the 1000 kilometers on the Nordschleife were only comparable to the 24-hour race at Le Mans . The commitment of the racing teams and the abundance of reports were correspondingly high.

Ferrari won the race in the last two years and went to great lengths again in 1964. Two new 275P, mid-engined racing cars with 3.3 liter V12 engines were driven by Ludovico Scarfiotti , Nino Vaccarella , John Surtees and Lorenzo Bandini . In the GT class up to 3 liters, Scuderia reported a GTO driven by Mike Parkes and Jean Guichet . There were other Ferrari GTO reports from the Belgian Ecurie Francorchamps and the British racing driver David Piper . Erich Bitter and Hans-Peter Koepchen drove Bitter's 250 GT SWB, and the Austrian Gotfrid Köchert made his newly delivered 250LM available to his compatriot Jochen Rindt and the Italian Umberto Maglioli.

The Porsche brand had 17 reports, including eleven 904 GTS and one 904 with an 8-cylinder engine. The rest of the Porsches were different 356s. For the works team went Joakim Bonnier , Richie Ginther , Herbert Linge , Gerhard Mitter , Colin Davis and Edgar Barth at the start. Carroll Shelby came to Germany from the USA with three Shelby Cobras. Two of the 4.7-liter V8 roadsters were owned by Bob Bondurant , Jochen Neerpasch , Jo Schlesser and Richard Attwoodhazards; a third car was registered, but was not used in the race. Two more Cobras used by the British racing team owner John Willment were in the hands of Bob Olthoff , Paul Hawkins , Jack Sears and Frank Gardner , whereby the Sears / Gardner car (start number 97) also had an accident during training and was unable to take part in the race .

The French racing team owner René Bonnet also showed strong commitment . The former French racing driver registered five René Bonnet Djet. The GT vehicles had a 1.1 liter Renault engine and were taken over by Robert Bouharde , Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Gérard Laureau , among others .

Martini, Diva GT and ISO Grifo: Further noteworthy reports came from the German racing driver and designer Willi Martini , who reported self-built vehicles with 0.7-liter BMW engines, and Pierre Noblet , who launched an Iso Grifo A3C . The Diva GT was a lightweight, compact sports coupé with a GRP body. The vehicle had a filigree tubular space frame, rear independent wheel suspension and disc brakes at the front. The car developed by Don Sim was driven by the two future Formula 1 drivers John Miles and Peter Gethin, among others .

Race course

In the 1964 1000 km race, Ford used a works car for the first time in an international endurance race. It was a Ford GT with an 8-cylinder V-engine, displacement 4160 cc, 376 hp at 7200 rpm, driven by Bruce McLaren and Phil Hill. [13] With a training time of 9: 04.7 minutes, the car started from second place, but fell out in fourth place on lap 14 with a broken rear axle strut. [11]

The race was marked by many failures from the start. Half of the Porsches that had started were eliminated at half time. For a long time, three Ferrari 275P were in the lead with the fastest in training, John Surtees, and his team-mate Lorenzo Bandini in the lead. The first setback for Scuderia came just after half-time: Innes Ireland , who bought a 275P from the British Ferrari general importer Maranello Concessionaires with Graham Hillshared, came to the pits at a run, as he ran out of fuel just under a kilometer before. With a canister full of gasoline, Hill ran to the vehicle, refueled and continued the race after the regular pit stop. However, the team was disqualified a little later for illegal refueling. With 12 laps to go, John Surtees, who was in the lead, retired after a driving error and a subsequent accident.

Nevertheless, there was a Ferrari double victory. Scarfiotti / Vaccarella won ahead of Parkes / Guichet in the 250 GTO. The lead at the finish was one lap. The best Porsche in third place was the 904 GTS from Ben Pon and Gerhard Koch .
