Gunther Janger on Volkswagen

Silver Beetles in extreme have belonged to the Austrian scene for five years and are now in dominating places. Ninth in the placings in the 1972 European Championship characterize the strength of the Volkswagen Team, which in year is a word of the encouragement, as didn’t get one Pfennig from At the end of 1971 the Salzburg Team Gerhard Strasser went the Volkswagen boss Leiding, in to refer to successes and to obtain (including assistance) for the future. Mr. Leiding was very interested and them half an hour. because Wolfsburg sport is not limited to Formula Vee. The which was that the Salzburg department of the Austrian Volkswagen could become such a as the assigned one (official or unofficial) of a factory team, did not fulfil Thus the Austrians continue 1972 the importer provided a of 2.5 million Schilling (approximately Marks) for the rally operation, a 150,000 Marks of sponsorship Shell, Bosch, Pirelli and were received. That is in order to be competitive in Austria, and to a sporty image for VW, but too little, in to show the Volkswagen flag

The largest assets of the Salzburgers are years experience in the building of hot In 1969 and 1970, when Strasser’s department became the Porsche Importer, and Messrs Elford, Hulme and Herrmann under Austrian colours, the cars were on the sidelines, 1971 it is the only object for Manager Gerhard Strasser, Paul Schwarz, seven an apprentice and a secretary.

The pluses and minuses of the Volkswagen in the can be characterized quite simply: technology makes it a continuous good-natured handling enables an driving technique, on the other a Beetle will never be to get into the weight per horsepower of an Escort, a BMW or an OPEL.

For the possibilities are offered to the driver, specialists are on in Austria. In sport, a VW — on any of road — oversteers, drivers must never on, because of the danger that for the front could break out of the tail. The technique of awkward can be operated thereby with compromise than with any vehicle, one lets the Beetle backwards, brakes in awkward aims for the curve Apex on, helps themselves in any way with places. An extreme driving is a must, in order to adjust for the of power, at least for people who to lead. Guenther Janger, 30, is the figure for this car. In painful rides he pushed the again and again, and today it rather exactly, where goes . Accordingly it lowered its almost on zero, and with a seat passenger (Harald who is durable enough to stop nervous breakdowns, it even a safe finisher. Dr. Gernot 36, is the long-distance type of the team, George Fischer, 24, is something a reserve Janger, he is becoming faster. For the remaining cars (up to six per there are several candidates, Gruensteidl and Bisek are in the foreground, the services of Safari winner is gladly accepted. Large is to be paid to none of them, but the care is as at a factory team, concerns the strictly professional of the cars and complex service. manager Gerhard Strasser, 35, is of the that us in the rallysport now none which tell can . Strasser raced motorcycles, and still enjoys the possession of three Nortons, which he alternates

Technical head of the department is Schwarz, 44, former Apfelbeck ex-KTM Works Leader and He alone is responsible for engineering the and engine -. Engine: A prerequisite for a power increase was a dry sump system — System . Beside the standard mechanical (attached to the oil tank), a feed is built into the cycle. The for this second pump, sends the oil from the crank back into the oil tank, normal Volkswagen production are used, is at the same time and reliable. The oil cooler comes the Mercedes 250 SE and is found under the bumper, behind the grill US specification apron). A loan of the 911S oil thermostat controls the

The resulted in considerable problems, were only recovered a trip to Modena, to the Weber The newest adjustment enables elasticity, and yet works well the ignition timing. Starting 1600 rpm, the engine can be at full throttle without

Transmission: The Homologation of the VWPorsche-914-Five-speed was, for the Salzburgers, a crucial forward. Up to then they had themselves with a close-ratio box. The current ratios of the Differential (3.091, 2.189, 1.318 and 1.04) result in the km/h of values in the individual in the case of 6500 routes and the to 58, 82, 107, 137 and 174, corresponds to a close four-speed gearbox another gear. Except the with 80-per cent-locks, all sections of the power transmission are

Chassis: Amazingly small to the standard car are made to the chassis. shock absorbers, front struts (a Bilstein development), an of the front wheels to a negative of 0,5 degrees and experiments with a on the rear axle, which one not always use, that is Steering element, rear suspension and even clearance unchanged. The dry weight of the rally-ready car to 890 kg. The gasoline tank holds 80 The 5 1/2-rims are produced in the house: Volkswagen rims are cut apart, and together wider. These wheels are only insignificantly than light alloy and brought the best results in operation. Because of the contract Pirelli mostly 165HR15-Tyres of the M535 (normal or coarse are drawn up, the selection exist between Racing and winter

The weakest point of the Salzburger is the brake assembly. The modification is to the rear, with an over two increase on the wheel cylinders, shoes and brake fluid a higher boiling point for the style of driving of Janger and co is somewhat too little, and the last of a special test is often without brakes. One experiments at however.

Future: The management of Volkswagen Austria might still no official green light to the department for 1973, for approximately the budget to be granted again. would gladly modify the and would deny only a dozen renowned rallies Whether the importer will this request, is another above all because Wolfsburg is uninterested.
