Mercedes To Honor Stirling Moss At Goodwood Revival With Two Of His Most Famous Race Cars

 Mercedes-Benz Classic is planning on taking two of Sir Stirling Moss’s most important race cars to the 2021 Goodwood Revival in honor of the driver who passed away at the age of 90 in April 2020.

One of Mercedes’ all-time great drivers, the Briton is credited as one of the best Formula 1 drivers ever to miss out on a driver’s title and drove alongside the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio.

Indeed, to celebrate his stunning performances alongside perhaps the postwar era’s most accomplished driver, Mercedes is taking the 1955 W 196 R with which Moss finished second in that year’s Formula championship.

Powered by a 2.5-liter straight-eight with desmodromic valves and direct fuel injection, it was a technological marvel. Capable of delivering up to 285 hp (290 PS/213 kW), it earned Moss victory at the German Grand Prix in 1955, while Fangio took it to victory in Argentina, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Italy.

The second car Mercedes is taking to Goodwood might be the Briton’s most famous. The 1955 300 SLR (W 196 S) was a version of the same Grand Prix adapted for events like the Mille Miglia.

Racing alongside his navigator, Denis Jenkinson, under the now-famous number 722, the pair managed an average speed of 157.65 km/h (97.8 mph) over the 1,600 km (1,000 miles) course. Like the Grand Prix car, it featured a straight-eight engine, though it was bored to nearly three liters, and was thus capable of making 305 hp (310 PS/228 kW).

“In honor of the great person and racing driver Sir Stirling Moss, Mercedes-Benz Classic has already presented the ‘722’ ‘at several events in England over the past few months,” says Christian Boucke, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic. “The highlight and at the same time the conclusion of this special tour is certainly the Goodwood Revival. There, in addition to the racing sports car, we are showing an original Formula 1 racing car from 1955.“

The Goodwood Revival will be running from September 17 to September 19.
