Karussell - the White Elephant print


Known as ‘Caracciola’s Karussel’ this section takes its name from Ringmeister Rudoph Caracciola, who won the very first car race held at the Nurburgring in 1927, driving his super-charged Mercedes SSK, known as the ‘White Elephant’.
A precise and strategic driver, Caracciola shaved valuable time off his laps by ‘hugging’ the inside of the bend’s drainage ditch. Eventually, the ditch was made into a banked ‘carousel’ and named after the Nurburgring’s inaugral winner.

“For anyone with an interest in some beautifully illustrated quirky facts about the TT races and the bare facts on the female form it is a must” Murray Walker
