"Win First, Refuel Later" - Mercedes Silver Arrows Return To Formula One In 1954

An great look at the history of the Silver Arrow Racer.

Excerpt: July 4, 1954 was a golden day for German sport. Whilst the national football team was lifting the World Cup in Bern, Switzerland, over the border in France Mercedes-Benz was celebrating its return to Grand Prix racing in equally majestic fashion. The Silver Arrows sealed a one-two victory on the Reims circuit, the streamlined speed machines finishing a full lap ahead of their pursuers. The rivals were stunned.

I got to meet Joe Haro, a very interesting older Gentleman, originally from Argentina, now living in Burbank, CA.
Across the street from his childhood home was a automotive / machine shop he started helping out in from the age of 8. He rebuild his first engine at the age of 12. This was the place which prepared the Chevy and Ford engines Juan Manuel Fangio used to race with.
When Fangio moved to Europe, he took Joe Haro with him. To Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, and Mercedes Benz. Joe Haro was involved in the development of MB first fuel injection system.
I hope to get him to join us at the present Los Angeles GTG, 7/29 - 8/3.
