Erwin Bauer (born 17 July 1912 in Stuttgart, Germany; dead 3 June 1958) was a Formula One driver who raced for the Veritas team. he became famous for racing an undermatched Lotus to a fourth place in the 1954 Nurburgring 1000 Km., and thus, providing Lotus with one of its earliest successes. His sole race in Formula One came in 1953 at the German Grand Prix at Nurburgring, same track where he was killed five years later in a 2-litre sports Ferrari where, not realizing he had past the chequered flag, kept on racing and crashed fatally on what was supposed to be his slowing-down lap.
