Typical for pre-fl de Luxes (1957-58/early 59). This car has 1959+ grille of facelifted version and bumpers used till 1961 (1961+ model had already different ones).
Strange is the metal overlay on rear doors (on crease where the rear fender starts) - which is short, in typical 1959+ cars it usally was taller. This plus the side trim makes me think it can be 1957-58 with not original grille taken from 1959+ model, but some rare interim version, not covered by the period brochures also cannot be exluded.

I bet this is Course de la Paix (right?), so IMO can be German crew car - German name can be used by default.

Yes, it is.

130rapid wrote The sporting drama, fair play praise, using many 'live' shots from Czechoslovakian part of 1962 Course de la Paix / Závod Míru / Wyścig Pokoju (Berlin - Praha - Warsaw that year).

One more thing. I just noticed how the wipers are parked - in fact this works in favor of 1959+ interim version... Not easy one.

That's why I say 'unusual side trimming' (for 1959+). :D
