Legends of the Mille Miglia by Colin Carter

 

(Stirling Moss, 1955, Mille Miglia)

History was made on May 1st, 1955 when Stirling Moss won the 1,000 mile Mille Miglia (from Brescia to Rome and back), becoming the first and only British driver to acheive victory at one of the worlds most challenging races. At his side was motor racing writer and navigator Dennis 'Jenks' Jenkinson who, immediatley after the race, wrote a detailed 4,500 word story on the race, complete with full details, from his hotel room. This duo set the fastest ever time for the course at an average speed of nearly 98 mph- a record that has never been broken. As Jenkinson said after previous Mille Miglias "He who wins the Mille Miglia is some driver, and the car he uses is some sportscar.
