Hakki­nen heads to Good­wood with Sil­ver Ar­rows

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
