Hill Climb (Mountain Race)

1976 ADAC Sauerland Mountain Prize

The ADAC Sauerland Mountain Prize was the largest racing event in North Rhine-Westphalia and an important race in the Germany mountain race calendar. A total of 199 cars started on both days and Keke beat the old course record by over 6 seconds in the F2 car he used for the 1976 season. The term 'mountain race' appears to be a regional description for hillclimb events.
