After much speculation and excitement, Goodwood is now able to confirm the news that 75 years after the first appearance of the pre-war ‘Silver Arrows’ in the UK, the 2012 Goodwood Revival being held on 14-16 September, will stage a spectacular historic vehicle demonstration.
This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the famous Silver Arrows Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix cars once again being driven at a British motor circuit, for the first time in 75 years.
The Mercedes-Benz W25, W125, W154 and W165, plus examples of the Auto Union Type C and Type D, will be in action at race-speeds in September, with well-known top-level racing drivers behind the wheels of these awesome and significant cars. This promises to be the biggest thing in historic motor sport for decades.
Alongside the Silver Arrow racers will be many of the cars that competed against – but were totally out-classed – the dominant Mercedes-Benz and Auto Unions in the late 1930s. Expect to see examples of ERA, Maserati, Riley, Bugatti and MG on the legendary Goodwood track, alongside the Silver Arrows.
