Historic Mercedes ‘Silver Arrow’ at VSCC SeeRed 2007



To mark the 70th anniversary of The Donington Grand Prix, a Mercedes-Benz W125 racing car will return to celebrate its only competitive appearance in factory hands on British soil.

Event Director Julian Ghosh said "Even by today’s standards, the performance of the famous German Grand Prix teams back in 1937 must have been staggering. How fortunate we are to be able to relive some of this in 2007 with one of those actual Silver Arrows".

The W125, with its 5.6 litre supercharged 8 cylinder engine producing some 640 bhp, will be in action on the Donington Park track on both days of The Vintage Sports-Car Club's VSCC SeeRed 2007 event and will complement the weekend’s historic racing programme that varies from Edwardian Racers to Group C Endurance Cars.

VSCC President Martin Grant Peterkin commented "Every year SeeRed produces an attraction with something for everyone but I'm certain that enthusiasts will find the sight and sound of the Mercedes-Benz W125 extra special".

The VSCC SeeRed 2007 festival continues to focus on attracting a fresh audience to it's broad church of activities and to historic motor sport in general. As vintage racing becomes ever popular events such as the Edwardian race and the Williams Monaco Trophy will be run alongside other popular historic fayre such as Group C, Formula Junior and the Historic Grand Prix Car Association (HGPCA).
