Here are photos of the six spectacular cars that were the centerpiece of 2015's celebration of Mercedes Competition Cars...

The car that won the 1955 Mille Miglia in record-breaking time, driven by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson: the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR "722"

A 1908 Mercedes Brooklands, sister cars of which nearly won the Indy 500 in 1911 and 1912

The Mercedes W 154 Silver Arrow that finished second in the 1939 Belgrade G.P., days before the start of WWII

The 1914 Mercedes Grand Prix car. Three of these swept the podium at the French G.P., two weeks before the start of WWI

Juan Manuel Fangio won the 1955 F1 championship in one of these, a Mercedes W 196 Silver Arrow

Plus a one-of-a-kind Mercedes "Brooklands" that raced in the 1911 & 1912 Indy 500s!

ince 1983, the East Coast's premier vintage racing and concours event has been the Historic Festival weekend at Lime Rock Park, held annually on Labor Day weekend. No other venue in the U.S. has three days of on-track racing sandwiching a prestigious concours event all on the same property. Plus, there's the Thursday kick-off vintage and race car parade through the surrounding towns that ends with a "Welcome Party" on the streets of charming Falls Village.

Of course, the vintage racing on Saturday and Monday is big and exciting. There are usually at least 300 cars and drivers, racing everything from cars built before WWI to the best competition machines from the 1920s to the 1970s.

In between the two race days is the prestigious Sunday in the Park Concours.
