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.
