McKlein Motorsport Classics: Hubert Hahne – BMW 2002 Turbo

How to beat the Porsches was the big question at the 1969 24-hour race at Spa. Mercedes sent three 300 SEL 6.3 but could not start the race as their tyres were too poor. A Chevrolet Camaro led, but its starter motor failed.

BMW had their new 2002 Turbo for Hubert Hahne and Dieter Quester which led right after the start until its head gasket blew. Thus the Porsches took the first four places with Guy Chasseuil/Claude Ballot-Lena claiming the win.

Motorsport Classic 2024 Calendar

The McKlein Motorsport Classic calendar evokes the great years of motor racing and rallying with names like Monza and Monaco, Spa-Francorchamps and the Safari Rally and those of drivers like John Surtees, Niki Lauda, Walter Röhrl, Bruce McLaren and Phil Hill. Every month you can embellish your wall with photographs from the 1950s to 1970s featuring scenes and portraits from the McKlein database. You can choose one of two photographs each month, or swap them during the month. Watch Hans-Joachim Stuck operating as a Formula One lawnmower on the Österreichring, or Shelby Cobras in Sicily, the rapid Mercedes car transporter, the “Blue Wonder”, as well as marvelling at the 1959 helmet fashion at the Avus GP in Berlin.

This unique wall decoration shows sports cars and formula racers as well as legendary rally cars and touring cars, in short, practically the whole range of motorsport from the middle of the Twentieth Century. As always, there is a mini-story about each picture, and there are a total of twenty-five photographs in an attractive format of sixty-seven by forty-eight centimetres.
