This beautiful Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 Group A touring car, with the number 41, is one of a pair to have raced at Bathurst in the 1986 James Hardie 1000, where it was dynamite across the top of the mountain and down through The Esses. It was restored to its former glory and presented to the world at the 2019 Motorclassica in Melbourne, Australia.

The car, number 41, was supposed to be raced by Andrew Miedecke and former Formula One world champion, Denny Hulme. However, it ended up being Hulme and a man who skies very well, Franz Klammer. Andrew Miedecke got to race the second W201 after a pre-race driver swap. But Andrew Miedecke still ended up with the car because he is now the rightful owner.

Both Mercedes’s went on to be raced in the Mount Panorama Classic. After which they both got an engine swap to comply with the regulations of the Australian 2.0-liter Super Touring Championship. They moved to the states for a while and now they are both back in Australia again. We don’t really know much about the faith of the car Andrew actually drove but at least this one is saved. A fantastic machine with its M102 engine back in its place.
