Marking the 75th anniversary of the first performance of the famous Silver Arrows Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix team, the legendary performing troupe of race cars are set to make an appearance at the upcoming Goodwood Revival 2012.
Set to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for classic sportscar enthusiasts to witness the Arrows in full flow, the event will see at least ten Silver Arrows performing together, with high-speed demonstrations of driving skill and precision being put on by top-level racing drivers.
Made up of a number of classic vehicles, the Silver Arrows at Goodwood will include examples of the iconic Mercedes-Benz W25, W125, W154 and W165 models, plus examples of the Auto Union Type C and Type D, as well as a number of contemporary sportscars kitted out in the Silver Arrows livery.
Goodwood Revival 2012 is set to run from September 14th to 16th at the historic racing circuit, situated just outside Chichester, approximately 60 miles from London, and 30 miles from Brighton and Southampton.
