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.

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.
