75 years ago Bernd Roseyer crashed while trying to beat the land speed record set by Rudolf Caracciola that same morning. Some hours later winds raised and, eventhough drivers and engineers warned Bernd about the danger, he wanted to try the run to beat Caracciola.

On the first run the car engine didnt get to its optimal temperature because of the cold, he “only” reached 429.29 kmh . 

After closing a bit its radiator, the car set off for the second run, but never returned back…
