Silver Arrows celebration

A sensational line-up of cars from Mercedes-Benz will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Silver Arrows at the Dyck Castle motor festival in Germany on August 1/2.

The event will raise money for a renovation project and features a 2.8km course with around 80 classic cars taking part, some of them in competition.

Factory cars in action include the W25, W125, W154 and W196R, driven by Hans Herrmann and Jochen Mass. The Collection Schlumpf will field a unique Bugatti T64, built in 1939 and just restored after 70 years out of action.
