This special exhibition was dedicated to the racing driver Bernd Rosemeyer who would have been celebrating his 100th Birthday on October 14, 2009.
“You can’t learn race driving, race driving is a … birth defect.”
Rosemeyer, one of the most famous race drivers in the 1930s, laughed when a puzzled journalist noted this sentence. Rather it was a gift, a passion with which Bernd Rosemeyer was born 100 years ago in Lingen.
Bernd Rosemeyer lived his life like a race: fast, determined and successful. The early death at the age of 28 on January 28, 1938 suddenly ended this race.
