Historic racing car art with Bernd Rosemeyer and his Auto Union Type C winning Donington GP in 1937. It was an epic race that strengthened the German domination in GP series of that time. German drivers with german racing cars finished on 1-6 positions. Prince Bira of Siam was the best ranked non-German with a non-German car. He managed to push his Maserati into 7th position, 2 laps behind the winner.

Bernd Rosemeyer was the star of `37 Donington GP event. The competition was led by Hermann Lang with Mercedes in the first few laps but he retired with a broken damper. The lead changed hands several times between Manfred von Brauchitsch, Rudolf Caracciola, and Rosemeyer. Brauchitsch and Rosemeyer both recorded the fastest lap with equal time – 2:11,4. Unfortunately, Brauchitsch punctured a tire and Rosemeyer took advantage of this and was perfect until the end of the race.

Rosemeyer is an iconic motor sports figure. He was a complete newbie when he was picked as Auto Union pilot. Such decision paid back extremely well because Bernd Rosemeyer along with his teammate Tazio Nuvolari were the only ones who handled well the car with mid-engine layout and power output as of 500 hp. After marrying the famous aviator Elly Beinhorn he learned to fly a private plane. Before a testing session, he once used a section of Nurburgring as a landing strip and rolled his plane to the pits via the race track. This is what is LIKE A BOSS means today. Just like his rejection of the SS officer rank, he was awarded from Heinrich Himmler.
