Retro-Fact  It is common knowledge that Denis Jenkinson and Stirling Moss won the 1955 Mille Miglia in a Mercedes Benz. Not so many people know that in the race a year earlier, 'Jenks' had accompanied George Abecassis in a HWM sports car which, although reasonably competitive, failed to finish. In 1956, again with Moss, their Maserati crashed heavily during the race and Jenkinson was lucky to survive with just a few cuts and bruises. As an aside, John Heath, co-owner of HWM, was one of the drivers killed during this 1956 edition of the Mille Miglia. Denis Jenkinson's final Mille Miglia in 1957 ended abruptly when, after just seven miles, the brake pedal of the Maserati 300S snapped off.
