Head to Head in the “Green Hell”
The Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.4 at the vintage sports car trophy: AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix
The annual historic motor sports festival "AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix” is an absolute must for petrol heads, sports car enthusiasts and international legends of sports car racing. Taking place at the world-renowned Nürnburgring, the Grand Prix offered the opportunity to see a wide range of historic race cars and tremendously thrilling moments during the races in the "The Green Hell”, as the Nürnburgring was once nicknamed by Jackie Stewart. During the 42nd running of the Grand Prix, the notorious weather conditions of the Eifel Mountains again demanded the full range of skills from the drivers. Eventually, during the “Historic Marathon,” the audience witnessed how Walter Röhrl fought a dramatic neck-and-neck race in ferociously heavy rain. Leica photographer Michael Agel visited the vintage sports car trophy in August 2014 and captured the special atmosphere of the pit lane with the Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.4 and the Leica M (Type 240).
