The Jochen Rindt Gedachtnis-Rennen was a non-championship race held on June 13, 1971 at the Hockenheimring. The race was dominated by Jacky Ickx in a Ferrari, well ahead of Ronnie Peterson in a March-Alfa Romeo, and John Surtees in one of his own cars.

BackgroundEdit

The owners of the Hockenheimring had bid for keeping the German Grand Prix, but the ADAC decided to return the race to the Nürburgring after safety upgrades had been completed. So the Hockenheim group opted for hosting a non-championship race. The cancellation of the Belgian Grand Prix left a large gap in the schedule, and holding the race on the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Le Mans was not seen as a major issue.
