Brausch Niemann


Record updated 07-Jan-19

Brausch Niemann Brausch achieved amazing feats in a wide-wheeled Lotus Seven seemingly held together with lashings of masking tape, and known as either the 'coffin on cotton reels' or 'masked marvel', often putting to shame far more potent machinery in national racing in the early sixties. This led to his chance to race a FJ Lotus 22, in which he took numerous top-six places between 1963 and 1965. After driving Lotus 23 and 30 sports cars, then a Lotus Ford Cortina, Niemann turned to racing enduro motor cycles, winning the South African championship in 1979.
