Hi, I'm looking for anyone that has any information about the Karlsruhe Racing Association in Karlsruhe Germany. I used to live there in the mid to late 70's. Is it running races? Is it still in existence? Does anyone have any history about it?

Thanls, Tom

The Karlsruhe track was my home track the three years that I raced there. What a great time it was. I have several pictures that I will post once I get the scanned. "Moma's Worry" race team is who I was with and we were from Germershiem Depot. I raced there in 71,72 and 73. Mostly just building the track in 71 but did race. There was several racers that traveled to different tracks to race at there tracks and like I said it was a great time. Tom I hope to get some pics up here in a few days. I also held the track record there for quite a while in a 1900 Opel LOL.
