Silver Bullets

Silver Arrows face off for the first time since 1939.

Like most kids, I was interested in cars of my own era when I first started following racing. But it didn’t take me long to delve into the history of the sport. So I read about Henry Ford’s 999 and Ernest Henry’s twin-cam Peugeots, scarlet Alfa Romeos and pale blue Bugattis, jewel-like Millers and the behemoths that raced on the banking at Brooklands. Then I came across the Silver Arrows — the magnificent prewar Auto Unions and Mercedes-Benzes that dominated grand prix racing until World War II — and nothing else seemed to matter.
