Between the wars, Mercedes-Benz was dominant in Grand Prix racing, but often absent from endurance road racing, even though they won the Mille Miglia in 1931. The Demo Day Featured the cars that were the leaders in that era with a Lecture by Dr. Simeone about why the powerful Mercedes-Benz did not choose to compete at Le Mans.
