    Well founded rumors persist that a truly original DArtista Auto Union Type A (PGP Plus class model) is in the works – and time permitting may appear – fingers crossed…

      One of these?? :yahoo:

      This is the A type as it sits in the museum.

       

      Slightly different, especially in the covered front suspension, this is the 1st car as it appeared initially. Although it doesn’t show too well in this picture the original had a fairly long tapered tail that was bobbed off and smoothed by the time the the car arrived for racing in 1934 .

      Can’t wait to see it!! :rose:

      Not a picture, but a link to a good set of illustrations that shows differences between various versions of all the Auto Unions. B-)

      Hi MIA

      I had attached this same link a few months ago along with my Auto Union registration and summary of the driver history.  This is a great link and very informative and comprehensive specifications on all Auto Union Models A, B, C and D…

    Looks good Art and MIA.  Hope both Auto Unions make it out.

    JMS will be bringing the fleet, which includes three previous raced cars (Aston Martin Ulster, Auto Union Type C and Mercedes W125) and three new cars (Bentley Blower 4.5L, Bugatti 35B and Bugatti T/59…. all shown in the photo below.  I believe the online entry form for the new cars was submitted some time ago.  If not, would the race director kindly let me know and I will resubmit.

     

    JMS PGP entries – Only the Aston has raced previously and is in database.

    JMS PGP + entries

    Unfortunately no Auto Union yet… but the following entries from the DArtista garage will return:

    [35PW032-1AT] Irineu Correa in his Ford V8 Special; and

    [29PW034-1AT] Rudolf Caracciola in his Mercedes Benz SSK.

    A PM controller was forgotten – I never received the minimum on eBay for it so it will be here for the owner to claim if they can successfully identify the colours of the handle and each of the three controller wires… Cheers!

      Hi Art

      As per my email, the controller that was left behind is mine.  Just hold onto it, I’ll need it next week for the Targa.

      Thanks
