The anniversary "25 Jahre Nürburgring" (25 years Nürburgring) was commemorated with a beautifully organised celebration. The German Grand Prix was only offered for Formula 2 racing cars; however, as part of the social programme as many as four Mercedes 300 SL roadsters were ready to go. Without a strong competition the Mercedes cars ensured a quadruple win, with Hermann Lang (no. 21), Karl Kling (no. 24), Fritz Riess (no. 22) and Theo Helfrich (no. 23); their only true rival, French racer Manzon in Gondini, had dropped out of the race.
