Motorsport Highlights

Automobile Sport in 20s/30s

When the Avus racing circuit was opened in 1921, Horch entered a factory team in the class up to 10 fiscal horsepower. Drivers Bayer and Enders took second and third places in the final heat. Horch was also a regular winner of the car ‘beauty competitions’ that began to be popular in the late 1920s. When the ‘2,000 Kilometres through Germany’ rally was held in 1933 for the first time, all the Auto Union brands went to the starting line.
