Stuttgart. The Mercedes-Benz #racing sports car 300 SLR “722” (W 196 S) will commemorate #sirstirlingmoss at the British #grandprix from 16 to 18 July 2021 at #silverstone. Mercedes-Benz Classic presents the car in the F1® Fan Zone in the infield of the English circuit in a glass display cube, complemented by historical film recordings. It is the original 300 SLR with which Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson won the Mille Miglia 1955, in the best time ever achieved – perhaps the greatest triumph in the careers of both motor sportsmen. The British #grandprix was also won by the legendary English #racing driver Stirling Moss – in 1955 (with Mercedes-Benz) and 1957 (Vanwall, together with Tony Brooks).
Visitors to the Formula One race at #silverstone will have access to the Mercedes-Benz Classic digital book of condolence for the #racing driver who died in 2020. The interactive document can be accessed via a QR code on the glass cube in #silverstone or under www.mercedes-benz.com/stirlingmoss and www.mb4.me/stirlingmoss.
Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands
Directly after the British #grandprix at #silverstone, the 300 SLR “722” can be experienced at Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands (planned: 20 July to 12 September 2021). From there, the vehicle will then go to the Goodwood Revival in September (17 to 19 September 2021), where it is expected to participate together with a Mercedes-Benz W 196 R, in a presentation of all of Stirling Moss’ #racing cars. The Formula One #racing car also is part of the Mercedes-Benz Classic collection.
