Life Magazine Visits Wolfgang von Trips

A reporter and photographer from Life magazine visited Wolfgang von Trips at his family castle outside Cologne on August 1, 1961. They came to prepare a profile of the young count in expectation that he would win the Grand Prix championship a month later at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza. Von Trips crashed and died on the second lap of that race, and the profile never ran. But you can see a few of Life's photographs in their archive.

  1. Please let the dead rest in peace.
    Wolf von Trips died there over 40 years,
    he was regretted by a youth. Including myself,
    he was my idol.
    So we do not touch Wolf
