Jochen Mass Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

“It’s fun to drive, you just have to stay out of mischief.”

24 Hours of Le Mans-winner Jochen Mass spends a very busy few minutes behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing in this video from the 2017 Goodwood Revival.

Mass drove the 300SL in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy for pre ’56 sports and GT cars and was in very good company indeed, surrounded by beautiful ’50s machinery like the Jaguar C-Type, Aston Martin DB3, Ferrari 500, Austin-Healey 100S and Maserati A6GCS.

Running period-appropriate tyres on a wet Goodwood surface, Mass has to work very hard to, very occasionally, keep the Gullwing pointed straight. Enjoy the magic ’50s motorcars and the quality car control.
