Phil BeckDuring the talk, Stirling Moss will provide a fascinating insight into 1955, the year that saw him win both the Mille Miglia and British Grand Prix. When Stirling Moss was signed by Mercedes-Benz to drive one of the 300SLRs entered for the 1955 Mille Miglia, only two non-Italian drivers had previously won the event. Wanting to break Italy's eight-year reign, Mercedes entered what were effectively converted Grand Prix cars, straight eight-cylinder 300 SLRs to be driven by Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss.

Stirling was 25 years old at the time, but already Britain's rising star having won 212 of the 529 races he had started, including 16 Formula 1 Grands Prix.  During his career Stirling drove 84 different cars and competed in up to 62 races a year. But in May 1955, Stirling made history when he and navigator Denis Jenkinson rolled off the start line at Brescia at the allocated time of 7:22 a.m. (hence the car race number 722) and completed the Mille Miglia in 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds, at an average speed of 98.53 mph (159 km/h) for the 1000 miles. A course record that still stands today.


Come and hear all about the remarkable story from the man himself in the company of the most iconic car in the world at Mercedes-Benz World on Monday 29 June.
