Everybody knows who the Red Arrows are but how many of you have heard of the Silver Arrows? While the former are famous for their aerobatics, the latter give displays of equal precision driving Mercedes-AMGs.
The Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows Display Team, to give them their full title, are four highly trained professional drivers who are one of the star attractions at Mercedes-Benz World.
At the wheel of powerful Mercedes-Benz AMG, they demonstrate an array of breathtaking skills, from power slides to expert overtaking. They push themselves, and their cars, to the limit while remaining in total control.
“It’s the sort of high-octane handling normally reserved for Hollywood movies,” say Mercedes-Benz World. “The difference is there are no special effects, no clever camera angles, and these drivers only get one take.” Shows are held at weekends and during school holidays.
If you want to put your own driving skills to the test on the handling circuit, you can book a driving experience in a range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. These are available for children as well as adults. Alternatively, you can let the Silver Arrows drivers show you how it’s done and hitch a ride in the passenger seat while they perform some of their crowd-wowing stunts.
Located on the historic Brooklands site in Weybridge, Mercedes-Benz World is a fantastic day out, not just for petrolheads but for the whole family. There are exhibitions and displays that give an amazing insight into the heritage, innovation and engineering behind Mercedes-Benz.
