1966 Grosse Preis von Deutschland
Lens: Super Takumar 55mm f/1.8 Camera: Pentax SV Photo Location: Nurburgring 
Posted By: wtlwdwgn, 07-21-2015, 11:35 AM

Some scans from the 1966 German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring. This was the year that the racing scenes from the movie Grand Prix were shot. A camera car followed the cars at the start of the race. Nikon Coolscan IV (LS-40), Kodachrome, 2900 dpi, some cropping and PP in Lightroom CC.

Look Ma, no wings!

A blast from the past. Very cool, Steve - thanks for posting these wonderful photos. The drivers' names sure bring back some memories.

Thanks Jer. I finally found the box with a bunch of slides from my time in Germany. I also have the original programs from the '64-'66 German GP and Nurburgring 1000 km. More to come as I go through and scan them.

Wow! I'm a big F1 fan of both today and yesterday Nice to see a Swede in the last picture. How much detail is extracted from such old prints in the Coolscan?

Thanks. The Nikon Coolscan IV will scan 35mm color slides and film at 2900 ppi which results in a 12 MP dng image. This is an old scanner but then I didn't have to pay a new price for it. It seems to work just fine and 12 MP is plenty for my old slides. Now to get a film strip attachment.

Great shots and memories, I just found the original information we got at the opening of Grand Prix in Hollywood at the Pacific Dome.
