The international Eifelrennen was the only major race at the Nürburgring in 1933 but the organization and meaning of the event held now on the North Loop portrayed that of an earlier German Grand Prix. Initially Chiron held the lead until his car gave trouble. Then Tazio Nuvolari took over from lap two onwards, never to relinquish the lead. Brauchitsch drove a magnificent steady race without a stop and finished second with the heavy Mercedes-Benz. Chiron, who had to pit four times, wound up fourth behind Taruffi who was new to the difficult Nürburgring. Concurrently with the 13 grand prix cars battled nine racecars of the voiturette class and a bunch of nine cycle cars. Each class was started at short interval after the preceding group.
