Since 1990, the people from Aachen inspire their fans all around the world, that belong to the best in the quality of workmanship as well as in the finish of the details. We quote: “We are not only selling model cars – we offer emotions. History, dreams, memories – we live on that and every part of your collection stands for something of it. We can be there in your showcases, which makes us proud and grateful!" Keyword "Memories”: The two new model cars in scale 1:18, which have just appeared after models of the year 1984, remind us of two great races by Stefan Bellof: The Porsche 956 in the Jägermeister-look of the 200 miles from the Norisring and the 956, which the factory had used in the Rothmans appearance at the Nürburgring only a short time later. A third place and a victory - briefly presented here.
Still in the penultimate year in March 2017, we enjoyed the memories of the father of the two Bellof brothers, the then 92-year-old Georg Bellof sr. Presented with unforgettable good mood, he told us from earlier days about the career of his son Stefan; we were happy to be infected by the passion, which marked the senior and we caught in the video. But today, on June 2019, we received the message about the death of Georg Bellof.
It was a highlight of the Advent season: Quite before Christmas, Georg Bellof and the editorial staff of Stefan-Bellof.de had the opportunity for a detailed conversation. The content has a true rarity value: The model cars in the house of Bellof!
Even more than in the first part of our series of interviews, we are touched by the remarks of Georg Bellof on the life of his son Stefan in the second chapter of the big interview: The theme is the record round at the Nordschleife, with which the sports car world champion from 1984 finished in the ADAC final training one year earlier Experts were shocked by the 1000-kilometer race from the Nürburgring: On May 28, Bellof had circumnavigated the Nordschleife, shortened to 20.835 kilometers due to construction work, in an incredible 6: 11.13 minutes. That was equivalent to an average speed of over 200 kilometers per hour - so fast was no driver before and after Stefan Bellof, who wrote history with the Porsche 956 and this legendary performance. A story that also made him a role model for today's racing drivers.
