But what really got me started was the great link to all the photos on the technische museum wiens website.There are some wonderful pics of Hofmeister,Kamper,Seidl etc on tracks.But if you look further there are also pics speedway from 1952-70s and of Sterling Moss and a female motorbike racer from the 30s Anny Dein and a lot more

Of course when Hofmeister finished his career he didn't go on to race cars,but interestingly planes and was 3 time German champ

Germany's best ever?

 

Yes, he probably was but no World Championship title to show for it :wink:

 

Debatable - Josef Hofmeister or Egon Muller. On my own thoughts I would put Muller comfortably ahead. But I am not going into any details so don't ask me to.
