sports car week … what we miss … epic races

the Stanguellini-Fiat S1100 of Michele Bormolini & Giovanni Zavanella at the 1953 Mille Miglia

probably one of the greatest road races in history, with spectators estimated to run over 5 million, all lining up alongside the roads of Nothern Italy (the race ran from Brescia to Roma & back)
the race was hosted 24 times from 1927 until 1957 with Stirling Moss accompagnied by Denis Jenkinson as the most famous winners, driving to victory in ‘55 (driving the now legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SLR)

722 | Number made fammous by Sterling Moss in his 300 SLR and the resurgence of the Silver Arrow

1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SLR MM | W196S | Sport-Leicht Rennsport | Super-Light Racing | Mille Miglia | 2.5L 8 cyl 310 bhp | Top Speed 300 kph 186 mph | Sports Racing Car used in the World Sportscar Championship | One of the best racing cars of its time | Only 9 units were ever built

No 722 300SLR driven by Sterling Moss won the 1955 Mille Miglia race while Juan Manuel Fangio took 2nd place | The SLRs took 1st and 2nd place in the Tourist Trophy at Dundrod and at the Targa Florio in Sicily | Due to points gained the races, the 300SLR won the 1955 World Sportscar Championship for Mercedes

While Fangio in a 300SLR was leading the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the other 300SLRs driven by Pierre Levegh crashed, killing 82 and injuring more than 100 spectators | That remains the
highest-fatality accident in motorsport history

Unfortunately, the racing career of the 300SLR was prematurely ended and its full potential as a Race Car was never realized, when Mercedes, due to the incident at Le Mans, withdrew from Motorsport until the mid-1980
