In the evening of December 2nd, 2019, Stefan Bellof was once again in a special way in the focus of the public of motorsports next to 28 of his colleagues: On this evening, 29 champions from the world of long distance racing were taken into the FIA Hall of Fame as part of a festive ceremony in the Automobile Club De France in the heart of Paris. With it was Georg Bellof, the brother of the 1985 deceased racing driver from Giessen. All sports car World Champions since 1981 have been taken into account, so those of the current FIA World Endurance Championship WEC as well as those of the predecessors existing until the season 1992: The sports car world championship was held for the first time already in 1953; Its first race had been the 12 Hours of Sebring. In the early years, only the brands or manufacturers initially benefited from the award with a title. The team from Stefan Bellof Official has essentially recorded the process of the gala. Our request for a statement has gladly met Georg Bellof. In addition to many prominent athletes, the host motor sports authority FIA, the Fédération Internationale De L'Automobile, has also brought some of the vehicles to Paris.
Minichamps from Aachen is known as the most distinguished label in the field of manufacture model cars from the motorsports. 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!
