It seems we’ve hit a popular topic with the combination of Manfred Winklehock and the BMW M1. West Coast contributor, Gary Faules spent some time poking around Youtube last night and came up with a few choice vids of the man and one of his steeds in action.
First up, we have the super scary crash where Manfred’s Formula 2 car takes flight off a rise at the old Nurburgring. Remember that once the car begins to roll, it’s going through fencing. To give you an idea of how close this could have been, watch the visor on his helmet as he exits the car. He obviously caught the fence in his face.
Next up, fast forward to 2007 and we have in car footage from the BMW M1 that Winklehock drove in the 1981 Procar series during this year’s vintage endurance race at Monza.
Finally, we have the same M1 at Valencia in May. This time, they’ve cleaned the windshield and we get to ride from the start. Turn up the speakers, as the sound of the M1 wailing is incredible.
