The new, official book of the 2015 Mille Miglia opens with a focus on the memorable victory in the 1955 event by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. They won the Brescian classic at an incredible average speed of 157 kph (97.6 mph), a record that has remained unbeaten. And three of those Silvers Arrows dominated the 2015 commemorative Mille Miglia, opening the roads of northern Italy for the crews that had brought their extraordinary cars to the event, which touched, as always, a number of the most delightful cities and locations in the bel paese. This year's race was dominated by the Bugattis, with the French-built cars taking the first 10 places overall as well as in that Temple of Speed, the Monza Autodrome. The 2015 Mille Miglia's visit to one of the world's fastest racing circuits was its homage to Milan, home of the world-famous Expo, to which the central part of the book is devoted and which concludes as in previous years with a systematic cataloging of all 438 starters. Yet another record for a race that retains unaltered its unequalled fascination. As always, numerous professional racing drivers were at the start of the race, including Sir Stirling Moss, Hans Herrmann and Ralf Schumacher, each driving one of the works Mercedes-Benz 300 SLRs and they were joined by Jochen Mass, Cesare Fiorio, Derek Bell and Karl Windlinger.

Book Description Nada, 2015. Condition: new. A cura di Mazzetti P. Vimodrone, 2015; ril., pp. 288, ill., cm 25,5x34. (Grandi Corse su Strada e Rallies). L'appuntamento con il libro ufficiale della Mille Miglia si rinnova anche nel 2015. La prima parte del volume non poteva non essere dedicata alla memorabile affermazione ottenuta, esattamente sessant'anni fa, dalla Mercedes-Benz di Stirling Moss e Denis Jenkinson, capaci di aggiudicarsi la classica bresciana alla sbalorditiva media di oltre 157 km/h, record poi rimasto imbattuto. E proprio le tre "Frecce d'Argento" che dominarono quella storica edizione hanno fatto da "apri pista" agli equipaggi che hanno portato in giro per l'Italia le loro straordinarie vetture, toccando, come sempre, alcune delle città e delle località più suggestive del nostro Paese. La cronaca della corsa dominata dalle Bugatti (con sei vetture della Casa francese piazzate nei primi dieci posti assoluti), ma anche con il passaggio nel "tempio della velocità" di Monza quale omaggio a Milano, città dell'Expo 2015, è poi dedicata la parte centrale del volume che anche quest'anno si conclude con la catalogazione sistematica di tutti i 438 concorrenti al via. Ennesimo record di una gara che conserva inalterato il proprio ineguagliabile fascino. Come sempre numerosi, anche in questa edizione, i piloti "professionisti" al via della corsa: a Moss, Herrmann e Ralf Schumacher, al volante delle tre Mercedes 300 SLR ufficiali, si sono aggiunti i vari Jochen Mass, Cesare Fiorio, Derek Bell, Karl Wendlinger.
