Hans Stuck established a series of Class B distance records driving a 6 litre Auto Union on a closed section of the highway between Frankfurt and Heidelberg, Germany. Although the track was damp it did not hinder Stuck from making 3 records on distances up to 10 Miles including a world record {5 Miles:291.050 km/h (180.850 mph) [1 min 39.53 s];10 km: 288.623 km/h (179.342 mph) [2 min 4.73 s];10 Miles: 286.459 km/h (177.998 mph) [3 min 22.25 s]- World Record}. Then Stuck established a world record for 100 Miles [267.210 km/h (166.036 mph) [36 min 8.2 s] making three other world records at the same time. He used a 113 km long section of the highway and at the end point Stuck had to stop and make a U turn for the last 48 kilometres of the 100 Mile run, making the 267.2 km/h record even more incredible.
