BMW's Formula Two car and driver Hubert Hahne during practice

The 1968 German Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at the Nürburgring on 4 August 1968. It was the eighth round of the 1968 Formula One season. The race was held in extremely wet and foggy conditions, and British driver Jackie Stewart, racing with a broken wrist, won the race by a margin of four minutes in what is widely considered to be one of the greatest victories in the history of Formula One.<ref name=espn /><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>

The race is also notable for Dan Gurney's choice of a full face helmet, making him the first driver to do so in Grand Prix racing.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
