Information About The Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Division:Throughout its history, Mercedes-Benz has participated in a wide range of motor sport races, including sports
car and rallying, and is currently involved in F3, DTM and F1.
The two separate brands which were combined to create the Mercedes-Benz company in 1926, had individually
experienced success in the motorsport arena throughout their separate lifetime. They were both entered into the
first automobile race hold in Paris in 1894. Mercedes Simplex built in 1902 by DMG, was Mercedes' first racing car.
Grand Prix motor racing: Benz was involved in GP events from 1923, when the Benz Tropfenwagen was brought
to motorsport at the European GP at Monza. Despite a very good start, with a fourth and a fifth place in their first
races, they slowed down in the next three years of GP and hillclimbing, and the public was left disappointed.
Financial problems led to a merger with Daimler company.
In 2009, Mercedes stated that would connect ways with McLaren, and will purchase a 75% part in the 2009
championship-winning division Brawn GP.
Sportscar racing: After the war, Mercedes-Benz got back to racing in 1952. Their small and weak Mercedes-Benz
300SL, won several races in 1952 including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Carrera Panamericana, and did good
enough in some other important motorsport events.
Touring cars: Mercedes-Benz intended to enter rallying with the Mercedes-Benz W201 model in the early 1980s.
However, as AWD and turbochargers were debuted by the competition (Audi Quattro), this move was stopped.
The W201 was used in the DTM touring races from 1988, with the car being tuned for racing by AMG, who
became an official partner which still continue to be involved in DTM sports series today.
Formula Three: In about only five years since Mercedes began its contribution to F3, has became the most
important engine supplier. Its powerful engines, which are built and maintained by H.W.A GmbH, have contributed
to many drivers' and teams' championship titles in the F3 Euroseries and British F3 Championship events.
