Post New 500SLC member

I would like to introduce myself as a new member to this fantastic forum. I am based in Belgium and a MB C107 passionate. I race in historic rally's with a Mercedes 500 SLC Rally which was completely rebuilt to works specifications.

This was the factory car with which Björn Waldegard, Alexander Cowan, Hanu Mikkola and others won some international rally events between 1978 and 1981 (e.g. Safari rally, Ivory Coast...).

We currently have 2 MB 500 SLC rally cars developed for tarmac races and last June, one of our cars was driven by no one else than Björn Waldegard in the Ypres Historic Rally in Belgium, race counting for the FIA European Historic Sportscar Championship.

In September we will now start building 2 450SLC cars specifically for gravel and dessert races as we intend to participate in next year's East African Safari Rally in Kenia.

For those who are interested in following up on our activities, have a look at our site: Silver Arrows

Some images of our cars in action:
