The Greatest Race

Out of stock

THE GREATEST RACE IS THE STORY OF SIR STIRLING MOSS’S RECORD-SMASHING WIN OF ITALY’S GREAT RACE, THE MILLE MIGLIA IN THE MERCEDES-BENZ 300SLR.

Side by side in the silver number 722 SLR with his navigator Denis Jenkinson, Stirling Moss piloted the car a thousand treacherous miles – through public roads and cobblestoned towns – in a mere 10 hours. A record set in 1955 that still stands today. It was the first win of the Mille Miglia by a non-Italian, and the first in a non-Italian car.

It goes without saying that it’s been incredible to have Sir Stirling on board as an official collaborator. His first-person additions and edits to the known accounts of the race have been invaluable, allowing me to tell the story for the very first time not from a technical perspective, but in an emotional and storybook style.

Mercedes-Benz has also lent a hand, having given me access to their fantastic archives of documents and photographs from the 1955 racing season.
