The Ring boulevard as a scene, a world premiere: The Stefan-Bellof-Collection will be presented in the sales shop of the Cologne Trade GmbH in the course of the 45th ADAC 24 hour race Nürburgring 2017. This in the presence of Georg "Goa" Bellof, the brother of the popular racing driver from Giessen, who participated in the classic part of the motorsports event with a historic Porsche
911 itself intervenes in the events of the weekend. Goa can also be seen in the catalog of his collection named after his brother, with which the various articles are presented in detail. The choice of location and time for the launch of the Stefan-Bellof-Collection could not have been better, because there is a very special connection between the racer and the Nürburgring-North loops: 6: 11.13 minutes.
It was the 35th season of the new Formula 1 World Championship, where Stefan Bellof and Ayrton Senna met for the first time since the tests in the British Silverstone 1983. The sixth race of 1984 started on June 3; a Sunday, which should be remembered by the motor sport fans if not only because of the nonstop morning rain. Bellof and Senna had to wait longer as their 18 colleagues of the starter field, which had been reduced to 20 cars, because the traffic light jumped to green only 45 minutes later than expected. But what both newcomers did after the race started should contribute to the legendary formation of Formula 1.
A careful planning, a detailed briefing and then the start-up jumped green: the days of 16th and 17th of May 2017 is all about the first photo shoot for the brand-new Stefan-Bellof-Collection, to which the stories of the racing driver from Giessen comes to life by means of a car and a racetrack.
Minichamps has produced an outstanding model car, based on the car of which Stefan Bellof took part on the test drives in Silverstone, British Isles, on 10 November 1983, at the invitation of Marlboro McLaren International. The miniature is held in the 1:18 scale and is made from the high-quality polyurethane casting resin. The model is called the McLaren MP4-1C and was tested on that day by Martin Brundle, Ayrton Senna and Stefan Bellof. The times: Brundle and Bellof drove on hard tires 1: 14.7 and 1: 14.6 minutes respectively, Senna on soft tires 1: 13.9.
