Autotrivia quiz – Friday August 31 – September 6, 2012



Last week, I asked what pre-war race car weighed in at 750 kg and had an engine that developed around 600 plus horsepower from its eight cylinder engine?  It was the mighty Mercedes W 125, from the era when men were men and cars were cars.


None of this auto-paddleshift, and turning the engine down from the pit wall.

So to this week.  I mentioned the mighty W 125.  They ran a leather strap over the bonnet at Donnington and not at the German GP.  Why?
