The Jena company ChromeCars has been a premium partner of the “Jim Clark Revival” this year. The event held as part of the “Bosch Hockenheim Historic” will take place from April 24th to 26th at the Hockenheimring.
ChromeCars is thus expanding its still young involvement in historic motorsport. In 2019, company boss Kai Nieklauson sent his own ChromeCarsRacing team to the start in various classic races for the first time. At the Nürburgring, in Dijon, Daytona and Sebring, the first victories were celebrated in addition to valuable experience.
This year’s Bosch Hockenheim Historic Race will not only support ChromeCars with all its strength, it will also use its own vehicles in various race and presentation runs. Classics such as the Lotus 49 or the Lotus 30 are being piloted by racing legend Marco Werner, who has accompanied the ChromeCars team as an ambassador since last year.
In addition to the racing activities, ChromeCars will enrich the supporting program of the event with a presentation of several unique vehicles from its inventory. The highlights include the most famous racing transporter from the 1960s and 1970s, the Fiat Bartoletti (Shelby Cobra), and the Ferrari team bus, which was used by racing icon Michael Schumacher between 2001 and 2005 as his “second living room”.
In addition, ChromeCars shows some cars from its exclusive movie car collection – including the famous “Eleanor” from the blockbuster “Only 60 seconds” – and well-known original “Hero Cars” from the action series “The Fast and The.” Furious “. In addition, some classics in racing history, such as Jim Clark’s Lotus 49 or Jochen Rindt’s Lotus 59 F2, will cause enthusiasm among the visitors at the Hockenheimring.
Behind ChromeCars is a team of classic car enthusiasts who have made it their mission to find rare and unique vehicles – in every corner of the world and with the help of a selected team of experts and a global network. Some of the finds are for sale, others remain in the private collection.
But the search for other vehicles steeped in history remains the core of the Thuringian company ChromeCars. It is not for nothing that the team of auto experts around managing director Kai Nieklauson also calls himself: Automotive Archaelogists.
