German Grand Prix

Template:F1 race

The German Grand Prix (Großer Preis von Deutschland) is an automobile race.

In 1907, Germany staged the first of the Kaiserpreis races at the Taunus Circuit, with entries limited to touring cars with engines of less than eight litres. A precusor to the German Grand Prix, the first race was won by Italian Felice Nazzaro in a Fiat.

The first national event in German Grand Prix motor racing came to the Automobil Verkehrs und Übungs-Straße AVUS race course in southwest Berlin in 1926 as a sports car race. It became an official Grand Prix event in 1929. The first race at the AVUS track, in heavy rain, was won by native son, Rudolf Caracciola, a feat that no other German driver would accomplish until Michael Schumacher in 1995. The first 1926 race was marred by an accident involving driver Adolf Rosenberger, whose car crashed into one of the marshals' huts, killing three people. The German Grand Prix would not return to the AVUS track again until 1959.

On June 19, 1927, the race site shifted to the 28 kilometre track at Nürburgring, where it would stay until the 1970s when it began rotating with Hockenheimring, which became its permanent home in 1986. The 1930 and 1933 German Grand Prix events were both cancelled due to the country's economic problems. The German Grand Prix counted toward the European Championship from 1935 to 1939; although there were often several Grand Prix races in Germany each year during these years, only the one at the Nurburgring was a Grande Epreuve.
