    Two verst race with obstacles near Moscow.

    In the same 1913, on September 29, First Russian Automobile Club together with a military office have organized a very unusual competition near Moscow. (...) That didn’t prevent Teffersfeld from winning the event of his 12hp Ford within 4 minutes 42 seconds.
    The winner of this race was
    Ivan (Johannes Friedrich Karl) Teffersfeld
    10 August 1875 Mitau - 18 November 1929 Riga

    He was a cavalry officer who led the Russion Ford Agency in Moskau before the first world war. That is the reason why he drove Ford.

    He was my grand-grandfather.

    Welcome, Triumph!
    Very interesting addition, thank you. Do you have any stories or pictures of your grand-grandfather's racing activities that you would like to share?

    Triumph!

    Haben Sie irgendwelche Unterlagen über Ihr Urgrossvater Herrn Teffersfeld? Fotos, Biographie u s.w.?
    Ich versuche seit Jahren die Biographien von bekannten Automobilisten des Russischen Kaiserreiches zu rekonstruiren. Ich koennte darueber (mit Ihrer Hilfe!) ein Bericht schreiben. Viele Nachkommen von russischen Rennfahrer halfen mir bereits.
    Schreiben Sie mir bitte unter: kiriletz%t-online.de

    Ich danke Ihnen in Voraus!

    Gruss! Stanislav Kiriletz

    P.S. Generalvertreter fuer Ford war in SPb und Moskau ein Amerikaner - Herr M.S. Friede.
