The Alfa Romeo 12C Grand Prix car was equally rare and accompanied by Talbot Lago and Maserati 250F.On the opposite site David Piper showed his green Porsche 917 and Ferrari P3 alongside Willy Khausen’s 908 and the 956 in the livery when Ayrton Senna took the wheel. The picturesque Schloss Dyck hosted the prewar race cars in the courtyard and it was nice to see them in front of the old building walls, were the armada of Kompressor Mercedes, Bugattis and Bentleys where lined up.
