Background


Jägermeister is among the first great motorsport sponsors. The involvement of the liqueur producer from Wolfenbüttel began in 1972 with the commitment to former world champion Graham Hill and ended in 2000 in the DTM with an orange Opel race car. In between were three decades packed with major success and tragic defeat. But Jägermeister was always hugely popular in countless classes – from Formula 1, through Group C prototypes to the smallest touring cars.


The book brings legendary racing eras back to life: Hans-Joachim Stuck in the Jägermeister Formula 2 March as the “King of Hockenheim”, Stefan Bellof as the German racing champion in the Porsche 956 and the “golden years” of the DRM and DTM.


Eckhard Schimpf played an outstanding role in all of these events. Not only did he negotiate all of the contracts, he also drove in races himself. These different perspectives guarantee exceptional insights, thrilling episodes and plenty of previously unknown details. Ferdi Kräling, one of the world’s finest racing photographers, adds his fantastic images to the mix. The book is rounded off by a comprehensive statistics section and images of the sophisticated Jägermeister race cars built by Holger Abt.
