Silver Arrows Featured at 2012 Goodwood Revival
| The 2012 Goodwood Revival, scheduled for 14-16 September, will celebrate the pre-war Silver Arrows of Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union, 75 years after their first appearance on a British racing circuit.
Goodwood is hailing the arrival of the famous Silver Arrows Grand Prix cars as an 'once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,' as spectators will see these beasts driven in anger at a UK motor circuit for the first time in 75 years. The iconic 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 at the 2012 Goodwood Revival, with well-known, top-level racing drivers behind the wheels of these awesome and significant cars. Goodwood promises it will 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.
