In car: IAA ' 73 luxury cars for dreamers and sheet metal heads were exiled in the backroom of the Super show. 4 years ago still motor show of dream car and avant-garde novelties dominated the international. This year, on the 45th, about 1,200 exhibitors strive to present further development of technically sound and realistic. For the first time, there is condemnation and glorification of automobiles in discussion, trade talks and trying it out at the Frankfurt auto show.
So are mid-sized cars in the Centre of interest. A successful, practical approach in assessment and sale is completed for the upcoming season with a Sportvariente: Audi 80 GT. Sport steering wheel, clean valves... Tip 175. Only the front fascia was changed at the Audi 100 series. Market transparency, also a new theme at a car show, comes after Renault: plays in the styling Studio, the designer model 900 from 1959. The ghost cars, called mystery, betrayed approaches and stations of millions series, which are internationally successful.
Renault 16 TS - Tourismo surpasses special - a touring car, the comfort and handling characteristics of the 16 series.
The steel forging from Sweden began to storm the German cops with a newly developed truck program. Only gearboxes and rear axles were taken from long-established series. The tilting bonnet provides quick repairs. The flexible laid electrical and brake lines betray ease of service.
Minister Frideriche: "without cars the optimum supply of our economy would not be possible. That's why I don't call just to a crusade against the car. It is similar to when the discussion on the market economy. There's just no better alternative, but we need to strive for the Elimination of deficiencies."
Electric cars are an alternative from the dilemma has become aware that shows Minister Friderichs for years.
The auto industry can not only solve the problem, auto ban is unthinkable, each 7 citizens lives from the car. Security vehicles: the 2nd alternative. However, the high costs prevent them to go into series production. Also the 3rd solution comes in a nation established on sales and consumption not taken into consideration: there are wear safe cars, as the Porsche-long-term program shows: but we bought stainless steel models, millions in the near future would be brotlos.
This cinema: 8 x show Olympic stuff, which otherwise can perform the human eye. Craft rule of a film of that wants to do more than to be a monument in the age of total communication. Michael Pfleghar, Claude Lelouch of France, the Americans United Kingdom John Schlesinger, Arthur Penn, the Czech Milos Forman, Kon Ichikawa from Tokyo, Juri Ozorov, USSR, and the Swede Mei Zetterling were allowed to watch the Olympics with my own eyes. And to own taste in 15 minute strips intersect. The Olympic prominence, who expected more than a chronicle of the events was high at the premiere in Munich. Consequently, the financially strong US producer of Wolper haute on the names of the 8 famous world directors. He left them full freedom in the choice of subject. Also free, they could decide also for style and shape their episode.
The crowd to the sporting stars was limited to receiving premieres. In film has been omitted on win hype, medals, and tables. The small, well observed detail Gets a new expressiveness for Olympia ' 72.
While abroad: Water for Honan the change River in the ehinesischen province of Honan results in plenty of water. So the mountainous region constantly suffers from water shortages, the grain crop even today of droughts is threatened. 1968-thought through the old problem in the People's Republic of China for the first time fundamentally the teachings of the great Chairman following - the thousand-year. Mao also found a solution: the great leap forward channel is to irrigate the province. First construction stage: mountains must be removed, valleys filled in to create a canal bed. A mammoth feat considering the missing machines: because in Mao's China to build still largely by muscle power.
84 peaks were blasted off in 4 years. With Baker, shovel, crowbar, the Communards of the country tipped the free-blown-up boulders into the Valley. The stones for the tunnel under construction for 30 bridges, floodgate pillar, drainage ditches, aqueducts were rightly carved by hand. 54 tunnel, almost 17 kilometers long, were excavated in hand work. In October 1972 the great leap was completed forward "the great leap into the future" - to channel, these days even the sluice gates and side arms. Reason for Mao's disciples, the revolution, to celebrate the wisdom of the President and himself. About 24,000 hectares lying fallow arable land of the third largest state of the Earth, is transformed into an oasis. The Beijing national newspaper might report: the province of Honan can feed of num to self.
In sports: Mini racer motor hobbyists bring the only 100 ccm strong two-stroke on 16,000 tours and 18 HP they hunt with the "tube"Chair then up to 180 kilometers quickly across the slope.
Home is kart racing, "the formula I of the small man", with still about money less than courage, condition and extraordinary responsiveness to the final of the European Championship. Everyone can try with 3,500 mark to be.
We observed the best kart artists from 14 European associations at the finals in the team trial in Garching near Munich. Kartz and go-Kartz are the same - but the 'go' today is no longer "in". The formula K - so the new international common name - many types, knows but in the class in the world and European champion will be crowned, only 2 rules: the displacement limit of 100 cm3 and a minimum weight of 120 kg, driver and car included.
During the hard wheel to wheel battles, the Germans have shut in recent years at the top. In Garching, hold together with the English and Italians. Before the decision, there was a breath at the racing liner with disguised Kartz. This car can reach speeds as the racer of II formula already.
On the letuten kilometers in the European Championship final, the 4 rider of the Italian team push forward. By a narrow margin, they pass the target before the team from the Federal Republic of.
But the joy dar Italians lasts briefly. The International Kart Federation in Paris must inform about irregularities. Until their decision, there is no winner.
