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 2008 BRM V16
This is as long as I could manage recording before the physical pain in my
ears got too much!
He never quite gets it going on song but it still sounds phenomenal. You
feel this noise as much as hear it.
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
