It’s full throttle for Audi Tradition as the 2012 season gets under way. Car enthusiasts can see its historic vehicles at more than 25 events throughout Europe during the year.

75th Anniversary of Auto Union in Motorsport

Auto Union and Mercedes Benz dominated international motor racing between 1934 and 1939
75 years ago, one of the most dramatic chapters in the whole of motor sport history began. On May 27, 1934 the German racing cars that were soon to acquire the nickname ‘Silver Arrow’ were entered for their first race, on the Avus racetrack in Berlin. Although neither Auto Union, the company from which Audi in its present-day form developed later, nor Mercedes Benz won that event, it was not long before these two manufacturers began to dominate international Grand Prix racing, a situation that prevailed until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939.
