Centenary of racing legend Ewald Kluge’s birth

Ewald Kluge
  • Best motorcycle racer in the world at the end of the 1930s
  • First German winner of the Tourist Trophy on the Isle of Man with a 250 cc DKW

The most famous DKW motorcycle racer ever stood out for having supreme driving skills and a will of steel – two powerful qualities that formed the launch pad for a unique racing career. Ewald Kluge would have celebrated his 100th birthday next week, having been born on January 19, 1909 in Lausa in the German state of Saxony.
