Clutch troubles eliminated an attempt to run a team of three 8-liter sixes in the 1907 Kaiserpreis race before the cars had even reached the eliminating trials.'I must have been drunk to send them', Horch admitted frankly.It was an 18/22, driven by Dr Rudolf Stoess, which won the 1906 Herkomer Trial against such opposition as a thinly disguised Mercedes 60 racer, but when Dr Stoess attempted to repeat the feat the following year, his car was eliminated by a broken front spring.
(The court decided that Horch was a registered trademark on behalf of August Horch's former partners and August Horch was not entitled to use it any more).
He published his autobiography, I Built Cars (Ich Baute Autos) in 1937.
He also served on the board of Auto Union, the successor to Audi Automobilwerke Gmb H.
His initial trade was as a blacksmith, and then was educated at Hochschule Mittweida (Mittweida Technical College). The company moved to Reichenbach in 1902 and Zwickau in 1904.
After receiving a degree in engineering, he worked in shipbuilding. Horch left the company in 1909 after a dispute, and set up in competition in Zwickau.
