The acceleration presses Norbert’s body into the racing seat – the Actros leaves the pit lane. Shift gear – third gear. Just before the starting bend, his body falls forward into the seat belt – and then the speed immediately presses him back into the seat again. Full speed ahead up to the second bend, fourth gear. The 1.050 hp push the racing Actros uphill. In the Jochen Rindt bend the first drops of sweat are running underneath his racing suit. It’s not just the heat in the cab – the thrill of it all is helping too. His pulse races. What power! Norbert is now fully concentrated on the next bend, his head and body are repeatedly thrown side to side in the racing seat. And again and again, there is that feeling: the truck might fly out of the damn bend at any minute.
