Motor Sport on Sports Cars

In 1955 Motor Sport‘s Continental Correspondent Denis Jenkinson partnered the great Stirling Moss in the Mille Miglia and won the event. It’s an achievement that both Sir Stirling and Motor Sport have remained immensely proud of. Nowadays our sports car coverage may not be written from the passenger seat of a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, but it comes from the front line of the new World Endurance Championship and other sports car series around the world.
