The Solitude circuit is 11.5 km long. The room is 9x15 m². Too small? No! Creativity, a look back at one's own childhood and a suitable yardstick are sufficient. We are building a slot car racetrack based on the Solitude racetrack. This centerpiece of the exhibition is being created with the kind support of Carrera. Visitors can experience the route for themselves and get to know the individual route sections. The partly easy, partly delicate curves, the fast-paced straights become gripping challenges and let you feel the tension that was over the Solitude over 56 years ago. The six vintage slot cars underline the nostalgic perception. A contemporary Formula I racing car, a Porsche 804 (built in 1962) and a BMW R 68 motorcycle combination (built in 1952) should not be missing in this exhibition in order to capture the reality and authenticity. The viewer can experience these vehicles in real size and get a feeling for dimension, power and volume.
Original exhibits, racing suits, helmets, trophies, etc. by the former racing drivers Eberhard Mahle, Hans Herrmann and Gerhard Mitter, all of whom achieve their unforgettable successes at Solitude, are displayed in three showcases. Not only racing drivers but also visitors of the races collect valuable treasures over the years. In an additional showcase, collectibles such as old tickets, badges, pennants, programs and much more show their view of the events.
In this project we tell an extensive story that was not long ago, making it tangible through a rounded room concept. For those involved at the time, we recall memories. With families, young people, motorsport enthusiasts, people who are interested in the city's history, and many more, we arouse interest, emotions and sporting competition with the interactive exhibition concept.
