Motorsport Highlights

DKW Motorcycle Racing

DKW began to enter for road races in 1921. In 1925 a small racing department headed by chief designer Hermann Weber was set up. Up to 100 people worked in it, mainly on design, parts manufacture, assembly and testing tasks, and of course participation in the actual races. In addition, the department produced the small batches of racing bikes sold to private entrants, and from 1937 the DKW motorcycles for off-road events.
