Team Eifelland Caravans

Team logoFounded: 1972 (active 1972)

Principal: Gunther Henerici

Gunther Henerici, a German businessman, wanted to go racing in the early 1970s and to that end he bought a March 721 and had aerodynamicist Lutz Colani play with the design.

The result was the unusual looking Eifelland - named for Henerici's caravan company. Rolf Stommelen tried hard for the team and managed to finish in six out of eight attempts.

When Henerici sold his caravan interests the new owners had little interest in racing and the project folded. The car was raced in Austria under the name 'Team Stommelen' before being passed to Hexagon racing who competed in a number of non-championship events.
