Coles Crane Gift Set The Schuco Piccolo models were definitely the better models but children primarily think in terms of volume for money and weight for money and when you only had a little pocket money to spend, the choice was easy.

Mercedes Benz W196 Grand Prix Car Weekend In France 1954 European…

Dawn Of A New Age In F1 Mercedes-Benz returned to Grand Prix racing after a 15-year absence in July 1954. It’s hard to believe that almost 50 years have passed since that exciting weekend at Reims, when the Silver Arrows comeback marked the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Formula One. And what a chapter it was! The weekend was also a first for me. I was a newcomer to Europe, and all I had to go on were the pictures and stories that I had seen earlier in the year in English and German magazines. Already there were reports of the serious testing going on at Hockenheim and other tracks by the Mercedes-Benz team, led by Rudolf Uhlenhaut and managed by the legendary Alfred ...

When The Germans Came to Formula One

When The Germans Came to Formula One Brawn GP ‘s inaugural 1–2 victory in Melbourne was no stranger to their engine supplier Mercedes-Benz: it was exactly the same fashion as how they debuted in Formula One in 1954 with their epic W196. Ross Brawn’s three-week-old team roared to take a 1-2 victory in the 2009 Formula One season. Read more Read on Like all great stories in motor racing, Mercedes’s dominating debut is a story of timing, innovation and resurgence, with a healthy sprinkling of treachery on top. It began on a November day in 1953. It was at the conclusion of the fourth season of Formula One, a mere eight years after the war situation in Europe had developed not ...

1955 Mercedes-Benz W196 R Streamliner news, pictures, specifications, and information Roadster Chassis Num: 9 The W 196 R was the first formula racing car built by Daimler-Benz after the war. Following their pre-war success, no one doubted that Daimler-Benz would return to formula racing. The first entry of the new W 196 R in the French GP at Reims ended with great success: Drivers Juan Manuel Fangio and Karl Kling would score a double victory. The next entry at Silverstone, however, was less successful, probably due to the streamlined body which was unsuitable for that track. This experience resulted in the development of the open wheel ‘monoposto’ body. Subsequently, various ...

1954 1955 MercedesBenz W196 Images Specifications and Information

Shortly after the end of World War Two, motor racing was understandably not a priority for Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to the amazing economic turn around of the country, the German manufacturer could return to racing sooner than most expected. Their first effort was in the early 1950s with the production car derived 300 SL, which took a win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1952. Everybody knew that it was a matter of time when Mercedes-Benz would return to Grand Prix racing. There they did have to live up to impossibly high expectations as in the past they did not only dominate, but also won at their returns to the sport in 1914 and 1934. Exactly twenty years later Mercedes-Benz re-entered GP racing ...

History of Formula 1 Grand Prix Cars MercedesBenz W196

In 1954 Auto Union was now known as Audi and no longer racing. Alfa Romeo also was out of the picture but Maserati and Ferrari, building and racing his own cars were very much in. The British teams were just beginning to make some noise. Mercedes-Benz’s re-entry into Grand Prix racing coincided with the establishment of new regulations that were heavily biased against supercharged engines which were limited to only 750 cc. After being dominated by Ferrari with cars that actually were developed to Formula 2 specifications it was hoped that the new regulations would entice other manufacturers to enter the fray. Mercedes set up a racing department headed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut while the race ...
