Hans Stuck

Hans Stuck (sometimes called Hans Stuck von Villiez, last name pronounced shtook) (December 27, 1900 in Warsaw – February 9, 1978 in Grainau) was a German motor racing driver. Both his son Hans-Joachim Stuck (born 1951) and his grandsons Johannes and Ferdinand Stuck became race drivers.

Despite many successes in Grand Prix motor racing for Auto Union in the early 1930s, during the era of the famous “Silver Arrows”, he is now mostly known for his domination of hillclimbing, which earned him the nickname “Bergkönig” or “King of the Mountains”.
