The ink on the report of the Citroën poster collection was not even dry, and we got sent by Birgit Pillkahn, Public Relations of Mercedes-Benz Classic a magnificent brochure of 120 years of Motorsport by Mercedes Benz.
The brochure makes fascinating reading, and also evoked magical moments I had with my father participating in the 1994 edition of the historic Mille Miglia, at the wheel of the Mercedes 180 D “ponton” .
Needless to say that we will write here various reports about the magical events which have shaped the history of motor racing, both of Mercedes and in general.
But we could not resist showing you here already the brochure together with one of the photos of my father and me driving in the 1994 Mille Miglia behind the wheel of a works entered Mercedes, and being in the same Mercedes team as Stirling Moss in that Mille Miglia edition…a boy's dream come true!
But next week I will be flying to Marseille to sample driving impressions from the new Mercedes C-Class, thanks to the dynamic PR-team of Mercedes Benz Belgium!
