Record win 60 years ago.
In 1955 Mercedes-Benz claimed overall victory in Italy’s prestigious Mille Miglia race. The race, which remains a legend to this day, was won by Sir Stirling Moss, now aged 85, who covered the 1,000 miles in just 10:07:48. As a special highlight at Mille Miglia 2015, Sir Stirling Moss and his team colleague of the time, Hans Herrman, will be taking to the wheels of the very 300 SLR cars that they drove to victory – 60 years down the road. Appearances by the two legends are still greeted with wild enthusiasm by the spectators lining the roads today. Juan Manuel Fangio, who took second place in 1955, was represented at the wheel of the 300 SLR with starting number 658 first by Susie Wolff and then by Ralf Schumacher.
