With Moss in the Mille Miglia

On May 1st motor-racing history was made, for Stirling Moss won the 1,000-mile Mile Miglia, the first time in twenty-two years that this has been achieved by a British driver, and I had the very great privilege of sitting beside him throughout this epic drive. But let us go back to the beginning, for this win was not a fluke on the spur of the moment, it was the result of weeks, even months, of...

Matters of Moment

The British Grand Prix After a period of over a month without a major motor race, Aintree became the animated scene of the B.A.R.C. British Grand Prix on July 16th, and, run off in hot summer weather before a vast crowd estimated at 150,000, the race was happily devoid of accident, confirming that Grands Prix with evenly-matched cars driven by the leading exponents are the safest form of racing...

Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

The Royal Automobile Club of Belgium, who organise the Grand Prix on the hilly and wooded Spa-Francorchamps circuit, invariably prefer a small entry of top drivers to a large entry of assorted talent, and this year was no exception.

The Week-End At Reims

All The Winners. — Fangio in Mercedes-Benz No 18 which won the French G.P., Kling in Mercedes-Benz No. 20 which finished second, and Alfred Neubauer, who controls the cars from Stuttgart. Once again the Automobile 'Club du Champagne organised a veritable feast of speed for a night and a day, and as last, year the form was a 12-hour sports-car race, from midnight Saturday to midday Sunday, and...

Veteran to classic -- Fangio celebrations

A Fangio Party The record book says he raced in 51 Grands Prix, won 24 of them, was second 10 times, achieved 28 pole positions, was accredited with 23 fastest laps and was World Champion five times. That, however, does not do justice to the man many consider the greatest of them all. Although Juan-Manuel Fangio won championships in Alfa Romeos, Ferraris and Maseratis, he is best remembered for...

The Swedish Grand Prix

A Day of Publicity for Mercedes-Benz Kristianstad, August 7th. Motor racing in Sweden is still very much in its infancy, due no doubt to the country being rather isolated away in the Northern Hemisphere, but with the 1955 Grand Prix meeting for sports cars there is no doubt that the Sport in Sweden took a big step forward. The Kungl Automobile Club, who organised the event, in conjunction with...
