Back in the 1970s Eckhard Schimpf was both a manager and driver for Jägermeister Racing. During that time he fielded an impressive array of drivers, a 'who’s who' of racing greats. It started with Graham Hill, a two-time world champion. He was followed by Vic Elford, Niki Lauda, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Stefan Bellof, Ronnie Peterson, Jochen Mass, and Jacky Ickx to name a few. All of these greats drove cars sporting the famous orange Jägermeister livery.
Now, four decades later, Schimpf and his son are searching far and wide collecting the very best of the Jägermeister Racing cars. So far they have collected about a dozen. Their latest acquisition is this stunning Porsche 911 Carrera RSR, which Schimpf himself raced.
