Hakkinen heads to Goodwood with Silver Arrows
Double F1 world champion Mika Hakkinen will make his first appearance at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting next month.
Hakkinen will join Jochen Mass in a pair of 1950s Silver Arrows in a demonstration run on Saturday. The two grand prix racers will drive a Mercedes-benz W196 and its ‘streamliner’ counterpart.
Mass, a regular at the event, believes it will be a major spectacle: “The W196 is an incredible car, it helped [Juan Manuel] Fangio to back-to-back titles in 1954 and ’55 and I promise that Mika and I will put on a show for the spectators.”
The paddock display will also feature a third Silver Arrow, a Mercedes-benz W25 GP contender from 1935.
