The Mercedes-Benz W125 was the ultimate among the 750kg Formula Grand Prix cars which were raced from 1934 to 1937. It was one of the most powerful Grand Prix cars ever raced.
Designed by Max Wagner and Rudolf Uhlenhaut, the Mercedes-Benz W125 dominated Grand Prix events in 1937 driven by some of the legends of the sport: Rudolf Caracciola, Richard Seaman, Hermann Lang, Max von Brauchitsch and Christian Kautz as well as some aspiring reserve driving talent.
The W125 featured the in-line 8 cylinder M125 engine with 2 inlet and 2 outlet valves per cylinder. The capacity was 5,660cc and vertical Roots type Supercharging was also incorporated. Maximum bhp was 646 at 5,800rpm.

The Mercedes-Benz W125 competed in thirteen events during 1937 beginning at the Tripoli GP on May 9th with a win by Hermann Lang and ending at Donington Park on October 2nd with a second place for von Brauchitsch and third place for Caracciola.

From my early childhood days, I have always been fascinated by racing cars and music.  As I grew this passion and fascination developed alongside an emerging ability to draw, paint and play drums.
Life has a way of taking you in many directions over the years with many different outcomes.  Luckily for me I have now been given an opportunity to dedicate time to creating and drawing again.
Immersing myself in studying the greatest and most interesting racing cars and drivers in detail and making artwork which I turn into products that people can enjoy as well is a very rewarding experience.
It is even more rewarding to be able to share some of the benefits and profits from these products by helping other people.
Working with my wife Sue and her wonderful company Sacred by Design is a magic way for us to collaborate and help each other with projects we are passionate about.  Doing the things we love together and watching our endeavours being transformed into something we take pride in that also gives back to others and makes positive change.  It is a great feeling.
Do not wait too long to make the things you have always dreamt of doing into a reality.
