Riding shotgun around the Ring!

Back in the day when the daunting Nurburgring was the venue of choice for the German Grand Prix, a driver who broke down was usually guaranteed either a long wait or a long walk back to base.

Sometimes however, one could rely on a practical - if not comfortable - passenger ride with one's team mate. Brabham boys Denny Hulme and Jack Brabham are seen here in 1967 slowly negotiating the Ring's Karussel on their home.
