Description

Manfred von Brauchitsch’s Mercedes jumps over a lip at high speed with Bernd Rosemeyer’s Auto Union in close pursuit. It was the power of the W125 von Brauchitsch drove that allowed it to get so much air.

The race was meant to be a showcase for English-born Mercedes driver Richard Seaman, but his damper had been broken in a collision and he was forced to exit the race on the 29th lap.

Seaman didn’t finish in 1937, but he took third place for Mercedes the following year.
