Avus Turns 100 (September 19, 1921)

Avus is one of the most famous racetracks in the world. It was the first road ever to be exclusively used by motor vehicles and is therefore also considered the precursor of the autobahn. The construction of the "Automobile Traffic and Practice Road" goes back to an initiative in 1909 to show off the German automotive industry and to test various road surfaces later. Only a few days after its completion on September 19, 1921, the 8.3-kilometer long Avus was inaugurated with the first car races as part of the German Motor Show.

Starting October 1, it was also opened to general traffic-- for a hefty fee. The following year, motorcycles races were held at Avus for the first time. In 1926, the track hosted the 1st German Grand Prix. Two years later, Fritz Opel presented his legendary rocket car at Avus. In the following decades, racing operations kept getting interrupted by the economic crisis, the Second World War and reconstruction.

The first post-war race took finally place in 1951. It heralded Avus’ second golden age (the first one being during the 1920s). The crowning moment happened in 1959,  when it hosted a Formula 1 race. In 1967 the notorious north curve was demolished: too many disastrous accidents had occurred, and Avus no longer met the requirements of a modern runway. Avus rapidly lost its appeal.

From the mid-1980s on, Avus was regularly used as a motor racing circuit, until 1998, when competitive races came to an end. Resistance to noisy events arose and closures also became more and more problematic, since the Avus - which had been connected to the Berlin Ring during the Second World War and served as a transit route during the German division - was urgently needed as a connecting road in a reunited Berlin.
