Mercedes Benz and Auto Union “Silver Arrows” line up at the starting grid of the Donington 1937 British Grand Prix. This would be a pivotal race, displaying the fierce rivalry between the top British and German racing teams, but one that the British press would severely underestimate. The German cars – which they had not yet witnessed on home ground – would leave an unforgettable impression, their sound being described as an angry, deep-throated roaring, like hungry lions impatient for the arena.
Bernd Rosemeyer of Auto Union would keep the lead for much of the race and took the win after 80 laps, with four other German cars completing the full distance within the following minutes.
