BMW RennSport Veritas gets a good polish

BMW RennSport Veritas gets a good polish

The car is of 1948 vintage ( slightly refurbished....) our energetic polisher and his glam'rus assistant are somewhat younger.

Veritas as a company had a short, sharp but very influential history. A potted and prolly inaccurate in detail history gleaned from the binternet reads....

...that they were founded in 1948 and shut their doors in 1952/53 but in that short period they became the first postwar German team to compete in formula one

In the immediate post-war period, very few companies were prepared to make race-cars and hardly any were constructed.

Ernst Loof, Lorenz Dietrich and George Meier recognized this opportunity left by the virtual shut-down of German industry. So much so, they started Veritas just one year after the war ended in a small factory at Me?kirch, Baden-Wurttemberg.
The immediate shortage of supplies after the war meant that the new sports car had to use many recycled components. Naturally, many of these were sourced from Germany’s most important prewar race car, the BMW 328. Furthermore, Ernst Loof was an ex-BMW engineer and the very one that put together von Hanstein’s winning 1940 Mille Miglia Coupe. Loof knew the 328’s 6-cylinder engine was the most suitable power train available. The British understood this even more copied the design for a Bristol engine which powered numerous English sports cars.
In many ways the Veritas was a re-built BMW 328 with a new aerodynamic body. Some cars used the original 328 chassis with a complex network of tubes to support the larger aluminum body. The very first cars actually raced as BMW-Veritas. Later, objection from BMW meant that the model would be simply known as the Veritas Rennsport.
Around the BMW power train, the Veritas used a steel chassis and slab-sided aluminium body. Many cars were built from customer-supplied parts. Veritas could offer engine tuning upwards of 125 bhp. This package set a 2-litre speed-record of 147 mph on the Belgian Autoroute at Jabbeke. Direct competition came from the emerging Ferrari 166, Frazer Nash Le Mans and Osca MT4.
Following the return to stability and economic growth, Veritas enjoyed success during the rebirth motor sports. One of their first customers was Karl Kling who won at Hockenheim in 1947. He later scored a major victory at the 1949
ADAC Eifelrennen race on the Nurburgring. He averaged almost 100 mph around the circuit. These victories put Veritas on the map, but the supply of pre-war 328 components were drying up.

With a huge amount of orders on the table, Loof was forced to make an engine on his own. He employed the services of Heinkel Flugzeugwerke who took a break from their aircraft business to produce an engine similar to the 328’s. The new unit was cast entirely in aluminium rather than the original’s cast iron. Furthermore, it had seven main bearings, a square bore & stroke, hemi combustion chambers and three downdraught carburetors. Being built by hand, only 50 of these units were built before production halted.

My two Socket 940s fully loaded with dual 64-Bit 2.0GHz Opteron 246 magnificence. I'll miss the solid ceramic constriction of the original Opterons when I upgrade, they provide the chips with a nice weighty feel in the palm of your hand, and probably have a more even thermal signature due to the ceramic layer. You can also spot this board's expansion slots. One PCI Express x16 slot for graphics (no on board), one PCI Express x1 slot for .... possibly a non-RAID 2-port SATA card I spotted. Two legacy PCI slots, one for my Promise FastTrack S150 SX4-M.
