7:42 — A track marshal in his safety-orange gear spits a loogie and then seems to stare down the camera once he realizes it might have been caught on film.
11:45 — A daisy chain of BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes get airborne in the Pflanzgarten in slow, wheel-wobbling motion.
16:05 — Two of the most famous drivers (Johnny Cecotto and Klaus Ludwig) in two of the most famous cars in two of the most famous liveries have a bit of one-on-one in action on one of the most famous tracks in the world—when people talk about the DTM glory days, this is it in a nutshell. If you keep watching until 16:52, you can see the plaid cloth door inserts left inside the Mercedes.
21:13 — Roberto Ravaglia demonstrates the M3’s rallying potential, and then Hans-Joachim Stuck does the same with his Audi to show the advantages of four driving wheels.
30:05 — We see the spitter marshall from the 7:45 mark again, now looking comfortable all leaned up against the hill instead of standing and spitting.
50:45 — When the helicopter camera operator gets one of the craft’s skids in the shot, it adds a sense of realism to the fantasy of being that guy. It helps you get a sense of what view would feel like instead of just look like.
And now for some of the best quotes from the hard-working (seriously) but rather dry narrator, Milt Fitzwater:
18:15 — the way he says “Cecotto” is just terrific. He likes putting some extra flair on it whenever he says it, but here more than the other instances.
18:56 — “For Klaus Ludwig this season has been good (pause) and it’s also been bad.”
29:28 — “There are corners here where they get down to first gear and there are also corners where they’re going through in fifth gear. (pause) This course offers something for just about everybody.” No matter your favorite gear, they’re all used here!
33:57 — “A different time, a different type of driver: Juan Manuel Fangio, and there are those bushes we talked about earlier.” He is referring to a quip made during the first heat about the bushes being where the guardrails are now.
