RC Special

RC Special

Bruce Campbell's first car which he used through 1950. It wore a very sleek body, though was probably a little heavy as a result and was BMW powered. Bruce failed to finish at Hockenheim in May, took tenth place at the Nürburgring in June, failed at Leverkusen on 2nd July, then tenth in the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring. He DNF'd at Grenzlandring in September and finished the season with a seventh at the Feldbergrennen on 1st October. That, as far as we can tell, was the end of the car's career.

At the Nürburgring, probably 11th June 1950 where Bruce would finish tenth.

Bruce decided to be an American for "America's First Motor Racing Magazine"
