Mercedes-Benz at the Goodwood Revival 2012

Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers from the 1930s took to the track for the first time at the Goodwood Revival between 14 and 16 September, some 75 years after the Silver Arrows first appeared in the UK. All the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows that appeared at the Goodwood Revival are original cars -- each with extensive racing history behind them. They were driven by ex-DTM driver Roland Asch, Le Mans winner Jochen Mass, five-times DTM champion Bernd Schneider, three-time Formula One World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart and his son, ex-F3000 racer and team manager Paul Stewart. Among the cars that appeared were the W 25 (1934), the W 125 (1937), a W 154 (1939) and a W 165 (1939). Power outputs range from the 254 hp of the 1.5-litre V8 W 165 to the 600 hp achieved by the mighty W 125. All were by far the most advanced machines of their kind with innovative suspension and drivetrains meaning they were highly successful and effective racing machines.

Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl - Goodwood Revival 2012. For the first time since the late 1930'ies the famous German 'Silver Arrows' returned on British soil. The impressive and then super high tech Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers can here be seen in some demonstration laps with their former competitors like ERA, Bugatti and Maserati. As the Goodwood speaker says at the beginning of the video: A once in a lifetime opportunity! The V12 and V16 'Silver Arrows' came from the Audi and Mercedes Museums, very unique and still giving me goose spots hearing and seeing those great cars lapping round Goodwood.

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.
