Mercedes-Benz 500SLC and 190E 2.3-16 at Wakefield Park
In-car video from a Mercedes-Benz 500SLC following (for much of the video) a Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 at a Classic Rally Club drive day at Wakefield Park motor racing circuit near Goulburn, NSW, Australia. The rare 500SLC was a limited production coupe (which like the almost identical 450SLC 5.0 which came immediately before it) sold to homologate these coupes for entry in World Rally Championship events from 1978 to 1980 in which they competed with success including some victories. The 190E 2.3-16 (also referred to as the "Cosworth" after the company which designed the 16 valve cylinder head) was sold from the early until the late 1980s. It too was designed with motorsport in mind, initially as a rally replacement for the 500SLC but eventually found success in European touring car circuit racing. The winter conditions on the southern tablelands at Wakefield Park were very cold and windy which made it difficult to get any heat into the tyres. The track was also wet in places, all making for difficult driving conditions.
