With post-war Germany divided into to countries. The communist Deutsch Democratic Republic ran their own hotly-contested series from 1950-53, mainly on ad-hoc courses often conjured up by dint of closing sections of autobahn. Krause was a leading runner throughout, mainly in BMW based specials. He took many top three finishes and was well-placed to win when faster drivers such as Barth hit trouble. Rudi drove a Veritas sports at Avus in 1951, but retired on lap 1. He later ventured into the West proper to participate in two Grands Prix. When the DDR championship ceased, Krause turned to rallying with a BMW.
