Although Prince Henry (Prinz Heinrch in German) of Prussia was a naval officer, everyone knew his real passion in life was speed. So in 1910, to encourage development of faster, better automobiles, he put up the prize money for a 1250-mile race across northern Germany for four-seat touring cars.    A Benz won the Prince’s challenge and to commemorate the victory, 10 special editions known as the Prinz Heinrich Benz were built.    #mercedes #benz #instacar #racing #motorsport

This is Violet Cordery in 1930. She won multiple races in her humble little 2.5 litre Invicta and she had to be talked out of racing the 4.5 litre version of the car in reverse around Brooklands – just to see if she could. A year earlier in 1929 Invicta hired Violet and her sister to drive a total distance of 30,000 miles around the track at an average speed of 61.57mph – to prove that the car was reliable.
