Auto Union and Mercedes W165 engine starts, LOUD!
Goodwood Festival of Speed FOS 2011, Auto Union Type C & D and Mercedes W165 engine starts. Awesome sounds, very loud!
Auto Union drivers: Nick Mason and Hans-Joachim Stuck.
Mercedes Silver Arrow W165
Chassis 449547 was the second of the two W165s completed for the 1939 Tripoli Grand Prix. It was considered the slower of the two cars and Lang was sent out in it with an unfavourable strategy. He nevertheless dominated the race and if he had wanted, he could have lapped his 'team leader' in the closing stages. As mentioned the car was only tested and demonstrated after its debut victory. It remained dormant for over fifty years and is still only very rarely seen outside of Stuttgart. Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the 'Silver Arrows,' it is seen here at one of those rare outings, during the 2009 Retromobile in Paris.
Auto Union Type C
Mercedes-Benz domination in Grand Prix ended with the Auto Union Typ C. It took a few years to get it right, but Ferdinand Porsche's daring design with a mid-mounted V16 finally won. It claimed many victories from 1936 to 1938 until the three-liter formula was laid out for 1939.
Horch, Audi, DKW and Wanderer created Auto Union with the help of Ferdinand Porsche and Adolf Rosenberger. Along with building passenger cars, a goal of the new company was to enter Grand Prix. They did so in 1934 with a daring mid-engined race car called the Typ A. This evolved into the slightly larger Typ B the following year and the Typ C was fitted with a much larger engine for 1936.
The Type-C was a third evolution of Auto Union's racecar. It primarily competed with Mercedes-Benz but also raced against Alfa Romeo's 12C-36, the Maserati V8RI and Bugatti 59/50. Type-Cs won six victories in 1936 and made Bernt Rosermeyer world champion
2010 Goodwood Revival - RAC TT Celebration race
Coverage of the 2010 Goodwood Revival RAC TT Celebration race. Nice to see some Ferrari GTOs racing hard - and kicking some Cobra butt!
There were 4 GTOs and 4 250GTs in the race plus a couple of 330s and a 250 Drogo.
At 5:41 you will see the definition of a heart-attack moment: spinning someone else's multi-million dollar 250 GTO/64 to the infield. Yikes!

Goodwood Revival meeting 2010 - collision, crash - narrow escape - spectacular driving!
Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl Saturday September 18 2:50 PM - During the Freddy March Memorial Trophy this Jaguar C-type driver had a 'slippery moment'. It looks like the Ferrari 166 MM just barely escapes a severe crash. Looking closely at the video it seems that the Ferrari touched the C-type with the left front into the driver door... Remember these classic racers are worth millions!
Goodwood Revival 2010
The Goodwood Revival really is a magical step back in time, a unique chance to revel in the glamour and allure of motor racing in the romantic time capsule of the golden era of motor racing at one of the world's most authentic circuits.
The Revival is the world's most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s that relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit. It is the biggest and best historic motor racing party of the year.
The Revival offers visitors the opportunity to leave the 'modern world' behind and join motor sport luminaries including Sir Stirling Moss, Richard Attwood, John Surtees and Derek Bell in an unabashed celebration of flat-out wheel-to-wheel racing around a classic racetrack, untouched by the modern world.
