Artist's Description

Captured during the “elephant-racing” (Eifelrennen, Nürburgring 2010). In the year of the Nürburgring opening (1927) motor racing was dominated by the Mercedes-Benz Rennsport S. The white hulking racing cars of Mercedes-Benz were nicknamed “white elephants”. The starting list of the “Eifelrennen” in the year 1927 was legendary, Mercedes meets Bugatti, Talbot, Alfa Romeo & Co. And of course Bentley!
The Bentley Boys triumph over all: 1927 in 3.0 L Sport, 1928 in Bentley 4.4 L and 1929 & 1930 in Speed Six. At this weekend in 2010 during the elephant-racing you could see a dozen of such Bentley cars in brilliant british racing green.
In the field of 32 racing cars was inspite of great competitors the Mercedes-Benz Rennsport S the focus of attention ( winner car of 1927 with the great Rudolf Caracciola).
