Silver Arrow warming up, LOUD engine sound, W165 Mercedes

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011, a W165 Mercedes silver arrow warming up. 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.

Trailer Magical moments. The hour of the Silver Arrows
This is one of the greatest stories in the history of motor sport: The Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows and their pilots impressed their seal on motor racing culture in the mid-20th century in a most unique manner. This legend, which to this day inspires the power of fascination of the Mercedes-Benz brand, is the subject of the ten-part television series "Magical moments". The hour of the Silver Arrows". In a playing time of around 500 minutes, renowned TV producer Cassian von Salomon, until 2011 editor-in-chief and managing director of "Spiegel TV", and his team, take viewers on a breath-taking journey through the history of motor sport. With Saskia Weisheit (director) and Florian Dennert (author), producers Cas-Film realised a film project that for the first time skilfully combines historical images from the Mercedes-Benz Classic archives with meticulously reconstructed scenes ("re-enactments") and contemporary interview elements. "Magical moments. The hour of the Silver Arrows" will be available on www.mercedes-benz-classic.com/store as DVD box and as Blu-ray disc. For more information, please visit www.mercedes-benz-classic.com/magicalmoments ************************************************************************ Die Silberpfeile von Mercedes-Benz: mit ihrer einzigartigen Erfolgsgeschichte stehen sie für eine unvergleichliche Ära des Motorsports. Geprägt von spektakulären Rennerfolgen sowie ruhmreichen, aber auch tragischen Einzelschicksalen, faszinieren die Geschichten der Piloten und ihrer silbernen Boliden bis heute. Caracciola, Lang, Fangio und Moss heißen die Helden, die das damalige Renngeschehen dominieren. Mit den Silberpfeilen werden sie zu Legenden. Diese Epoche des Rennsports schreibt jedoch nicht nur Geschichten von grandiosen Triumphen. Das Risiko begleitet die Fahrer auf dem Weg zum heldenhaften Ruhm. Es ist Teil der Faszination, wie sie sich und die Maschine an die Grenze des Möglichen bringen. Regisseurin Saskia Weisheit und Autor Florian Dennert machen die magischen Momente einer Ära erlebbar, die bis heute nichts an Strahlkraft und Faszination verloren hat − mit aufwendig gedrehten Spielszenen, historisch nachempfundenen Interviews sowie noch nie gezeigtem Archivmaterial in Farbe. Experten, Sammler und Rennfahrerlegenden wie Jackie Stewart, Jochen Mass und Hans Herrmann präsentieren die historischen Rennwagen und vermitteln eindrücklich die Faszination, die von diesen wertvollen Originalen ausgeht. „Magische Momente. Die Stunde der Silberpfeile" ist als DVD-Box und Blu-ray auf www.mercedes-benz-classic.com/store erhältlich. Weitere Informationen auf www.mercedes-benz-classic.com/magischemomente

Goodwood Revival Silver Arrows Demonstration 15 - 09 - 12 Auto Union Mercedes Benz
Edited highlights (the bits when they went past) of the Saturday demonstration runs from Auto Union and Mercedes Benz.





Michael Schumacher & Nico Rosberg each driving the legendary Mercedes Silver Arrow W196
To thank fans for their incredible support, Nico Rosberg will be performing demo laps in the race-winning Silver Arrow driven by Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1955 season. Team-mate Michael Schumacher also entertained the crowd with demo laps in the 2011 Formula 1 Silver Arrow. MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS driver Nico Rosberg's first Formula 1 win in the Chinese Grand Prix was also the first for a works Silver Arrow since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix. The victory in Shanghai came precisely 20,671 days after five-time Formula 1 champion Juan Manuel Fangio won the world championship at Monza in his Mercedes-Benz W196. In the 55 years between 1955 and 2010, there was no such thing as a thoroughbred works Silver Arrow in Formula 1. Rosberg's win came in the 41st Grand Prix of the new era. This will be Rosberg's second visit to the DTM season opener at Hockenheim: last year, he volunteered his services as a DTM 'taxi driver' at the wheel of the THOMAS SABO AMG Mercedes C Class. Rosberg's involvement in last season's DTM extended to the first ever Show Event in Munich: on that occasion, he drove a Formula 1 Silver Arrow around the temporary circuit in the Olympic Stadium. Nico will not be the only prominent guest at Hockenheim; his MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team-mate Michael Schumacher is also keen to be present for the opening race of the world's most popular touring car series and will be in Hockenheim on Sunday 29th April. Like Rosberg, the seven-time Formula 1 champion will be bringing a Silver Arrow to the event, namely the 2011 MGP W02 in which he will complete a sequence of demonstration laps. Nico Rosberg: "I have great memories of the DTM. The earliest date back to when my father was still racing. Then I started competing in the various junior classes that are staged as part of the DTM race weekend as I started out on my own motorsport career. A lot has happened in the meantime, and the highlight so far was obviously my win in China one week ago. I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Hockenheim as a Grand Prix winner. Last year, I was able to drive a classic Silver Arrow on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, so now I'm really looking forward to climbing into the cockpit of Juan Manuel Fangio's phenomenal W196 streamliner from Monza in 1955 and driving a few laps at Hockenheim. It means a lot to me that we have written a new chapter in the wonderful history of Mercedes in motorsport -- and that there is plenty more still to come." Michael Schumacher: "After a busy start to the Formula 1 season with four flyaway races in succession, it will be nice to come back to Germany for the DTM season opener at Hockenheim on Sunday. I'm especially looking forward to the chance to give the fans a taste of a Formula 1 Silver Arrow in action. This will be my first visit to a DTM race in 20 years, and I hope that my brother and his fellow Mercedes-Benz drivers will get their season off to a great start." Norbert Haug, Vice-President Mercedes-Benz Motorsport: "DTM begins a new era this weekend in Hockenheim, with a brand-new and exciting generation of cars. To mark the occasion, we wanted to give the spectators at the circuit something extra, and both our F1 drivers were immediately right behind the idea. Following his victory at the Chinese Grand Prix ten days ago, Nico Rosberg will complete demonstration laps in the Silver Arrow W 196 streamliner, with which Juan Manuel Fangio won at Monza in 1955. On Sunday, just before the start of the race, Michael Schumacher will complete a demonstration run in last year's F1 Silver Arrow. (C) Melcedes GP Petronas Formula One.

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





Mercedes W154 Warming up Ennstal Jochen Mass
MERCEDES-BENZ W154: Der Höhenstraßen-Sieger Dieser W154 mit Chassis-Nummer 11 ist jenes Auto, mit dem Rudolf Caracciola 1939 Rekorde fuhr, Hermann Lang auf der Wiener Höhenstraße siegte, und Juan Manuel Fangio 1951 in Buenos Aires Dritter wurde. Der 3-Liter V-12 Zylinder mit vier obenliegenden Nockenwellen besaß zwei Roots-Gebläse mit Stahlrotoren in einem Magnesium-Gehäuse, sie liefen mit 1,5facher Kurbelwellen-Drehzahl und beanspruchten bei 8000 Touren 160 PS der Höchstleistung. 1939 wurde der W154 modifiziert. Das Trockengewicht sank von 975 auf 898 kg, mittels Zweistufen-Gebläse wurde die Leistung auf 480 PS getrieben. Der Spritverbrauch lag im Rennen zwischen 120 bis und 145 Liter pro 100 Kilometer, das benötigte Tankvolumen von 400 Liter wurde in einem Satteltank vor dem Cockpit und einem Hecktank aufgeteilt. Von 16 Rennen gewann der W154 in den Jahren 1938/39 elf.
