On 22 March 2015 I showed some photographs of the 1937 Mercedes Benz W125 that was sent from the Mercedes Benz museum to the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2007 to give demonstration runs in the hands of Tony Dron. The W125 had taken part in a Grand Prix race at Donington Park in 1937. Here are some more photographs I took of the car at that SeeRed meeting.
There was no motor racing World Championship in 1937, but Rudolf Caracciola became European Champion by winning 3 of the 5 races in the series.
The 1937 race at Donington Park was a non-Championship race and was won by Berndt Rosemeyer in an Auto Union C type.
That 1937 race was known as the Donington Grand Prix as the RAC would not let the organisers call it the British Grand Prix.
Here's Tony Dron at McLean's Corner in one of his demonstration runs......
......and here he is at Redgate corner on a later run.
