Question Women's Sidecar racing photo - ID?

Found this photo on the web with no identification. Looks to be a pair of women on a mid-1960s BMW sidecar. Anyone have any ideas as to who this team is?

No idea, but hard-core hanging off!

Google points here who says they're two blokes: Georg Auerbacher et Herman Hahn.

Yes! Got the same reply from anopther source. Photo at the1969-Belgian-Grand-Prix-at-Spa-Francorchamps . I guess the joke's on me. The faces sure looked like a couple of women, though - even a hint of some longish light-colored hair streaming from the drivers helmet. Ah well - cool picture anyway.

Looking closely at the two riders, they really appear to be females. Not only the facial features and streaming hair of the driver, but look at how small across the shoulders the driver is - using the helmet as a bit of a yardstick.

Hope my 27 y.o. daughter doesn't see this- she has been after me to find a sidecar rig. She would love a few laps in the chair while I ride.

Seeing this would only make her want it more.


BTW, nice find and yeah, that is HANGING off!
