Herbert Müller - "… alles zu langsam!"
One of the great all-rounders: twice winner of the Targa Florio, twice European hill-climb champion, thirteen-time Le Mans participant including two second overall places … and the list goes on and on. The Swiss racing driver Herbert Müller, who called himself a "professional amateur", drove almost everything that was fast and good in his more than twenty-year motorsport career. That means everything from motorbikes to Formula Three single-seaters to a stint in the top class, Formula One, but above all, he drove sports cars.

McKlein, the specialist publisher of fine motorsport books, now brings Müller's racing career and his personal story into print. It covers the full range of his skills and the colourful mix of cars that he drove. Sadly, that story came to a tragic end at the Nürburgring in 1981. Now, just in time for the fortieth anniversary of that sad date, the authors recall the unprecedented career of the racing businessman and the cigar-smoking jack-of-all-trades in all cockpits.

Born in 1940 in Menziken, Switzerland, Müller first completed an apprenticeship as an electroplater in his parents' company. At the age of twenty, he had already had his first experience of serious motorsport and immediately achieved respectable successes. He quickly made a name for himself and was soon a regular in the cockpits of the big manufacturers from Ferrari to Matra and then to Porsche. In 1966, he scored a sensational victory in the world-famous Targa Florio in Sicily driving a Carrera 6, which he repeated a few years later. Among other things, he also drove the over-1,000 bhp Porsche 917/30 from one victory to another in the spectacular Interserie.

Fans remember "Herbie" and his successes far beyond the borders of Switzerland. Memories of family members and many contemporary witnesses enrich this racing story that is also a comprehensive biography of a motorsports competitor who rose to the top on merit. Of course, it would only be worth half as much without the sheer unbelievable wealth of first-class photos from Europe's most renowned archives, including many that have never been seen before in public.

Begeisternde Zeitreise mit Wehmut...

Also, das Buch gehört absolut in die Motorsport Sammlung...

Vor allem, wenn die Autoren Födisch & Roßbach auf dem Einband stehen, der Sohn Dani Müller & Familie und Herbert seine Weggefährten ihre Erinnerungen und Momente schildern...

Dann begibt man sich in einem Wechselbad der Gefühle...

Viel Anerkennung, Begeisterung, einige eigene Erinnerungen, ja auch viel Schmunzeln ist dann dabei, aber auch die Trauer mit diesen fanalen vermeintlichen Unfall...

Für uns im " fernen" Norddeutschland war der Herbert unser Racer, den wir so sehr bewundert haben und das in einer Zeit wo wir immer auf News von Helmut angewiesen waren...

Denn er war bei so vielen Rennen von Herbert vor Ort und konnte besser berichten als jede Zeitung und auch schneller - war halt damals alles anders, das war unser "Livestream" in den Zeiten...

Den Herbert fanden wir "kühlen" Norddeutschen am Ring echt Cool, denn der schwebte immer in einer echten lockeren Coolness, war ein so totaler Racer und immer den Stumpen am glühen...

Danke Herbert für die tollen Rennen & Momente, Helmut für seine Berichte und gemeinsamen Rennbesuche mit dem BMW 2002, den Autoren Födisch & Roßbach und McKlein, sowie
Dani Müller, dem Sohn der so viele Race Gene und Talent vom Herbie mitbekommen hat - fährt total genial heftig Abarth 1000TC & vor allem tritt der Dani die Legende Mercedes 300 SL so wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben...

Es gibt da einige Videos, die Mann/ Frau gesehen haben muss, wenn man mal richtige Boliden brabbeln hören möchte...

Da habt Ihr ein echt tolles Buch gezaubert, eine begeisternde Zeitreise...

Velen Dank Herbie & Helmut für Eure Race Leidenschaft und McKlein für dieses Buch...
