The Eifel Race.

The Eifel Race, held by the Automobil club von Deutschland on the Nurburg Ring on May 26th, resulted in a victory for Tazio Nuvolari at the wheel of a 2,600 c.c. Alfa Romeo.
The big race was preceded by an event for smaller vehicles, divided into two classes, i.e., 1,500 c.c. and 800 c.c. The lead in this race was immediately taken by Earl Howe with his 1½ litre Delage. He was closely followed, however, by Burggaller on one of the new 8 cylinder Bugattis. For the whole race a great duel was waged between these two, but the British driver managed to keep ahead and finally won by 1 second. Rain fell during the race which made the circuit more difficult. In the 800 c.c. class there was a virtual walk-over for H. C. Hamilton with an M.G. Midget. The little M.G. had far more speed than any of its rivals and caused a tremendous sensation among the German crowd. In fact half way through the race Hamilton had almost lapped the rest of the field, and he finally finished first at a speed of 95.5 k.p.h.
In the unlimited race a great fight was fought between Chiron and Nuvolari, both on Alfa Romeos. Chiron led for the first three laps until a leaking petrol tank caused him to call at the pits. This stop let Von Brauchitsch on one of the streamlined Mercedes, up into second and Taruffi (Alfa Romeo) into third place, positions they maintained until the finish, in spite of heroic efforts by Chiron, who finally finished fourth.
