Julius Weitmann

A photographer who followed Carel around the circuits of Europe, Weitmann shot some of Carel’s most famous pictures. Best known is Weitmann’s picture of Carel proudly sitting at the top of the AVUS Nordkurve, precisely at the spot where he survived a hair-raising plunge off the daunting corner’s steep banking the day before.

This section features the stories about the people who were around him while he was alive – his family, his friends, his mechanics, his entourage, his co-drivers, his rivals.
