1934 - Eifelrennen GP - First race, first win for Mercedes
with Manfred von Brauchitsch at the wheel in No.20      
In 1934 Mercedes returned to GP racing creating a sensation with their
beautifully streamlined racer with a supercharged straight engine and
independent suspension all round.

They made their debut at the Eifelrennen where they failed the 750 kg
limit at the weigh-in by 1 kg. Arriving painted in white, the story goes that
during the night the white paint and filler was removed and replaced by a
thin coat of aluminium color and the next day the cars passed the check
and went on to win their first race. True or not from that day on the cars
featured in the silver color that had already been adopted by
Auto Union
thus giving birth to the Silver Arrows legend.

With the exception of the 1936 season Mercedes-Benz dominated GP
racing for the rest of the pre-war era.
