Description of the original vehicle: Mercedes entered four race cars of the type W125 for the Donington Grand Prix of England that took place on October 2nd, 1937.
With starting number 2, Hermann Lang took off from the first row of the grid. He drove a courageous race and demonstrated great driving skills as he scuttled through a white dust cloud at 275 km/hr to enter the Starkeg curve. In the 10th lap, Lang became the race leader. But later on, he had to deal with massive problems in the front wheel suspension -- a defect that was very unusual for the W125 so far. It is likely that the extremely bumpy track (including one big jump) had caused this problem.
