DRIVERS: HUBERT HAHNE

Name: Hubert Hahne
Nationality: Germany
Date of birth: March 28, 1935 - Moers

BMW's European Touring Car Championship star in the mid-1960s, Hahne drove a Matra-BRM in the Formula 2 class of the 1966 German Grand Prix, subsequently contesting the same event again in 1967 (Lola-BMW) and in 1969 (BMW 269). After failing to qualify his own March 701 in the 1970 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim he instituted legal proceedings against the British constructor, alleging they had sold him a deficient machine. But when March team driver Ronnie Peterson used it to match his own time in a works car round Silverstone, Hahne conceded the point, withdrew the legal action and retired from racing.
