Comment   Congratulations must go to Lee Masters and the rest of the Clarion Events organising team. Race Retro 2017 was not only unbelievably professional, but probably the best yet. That's not to say it‘s perfect, more than a few visitors for example complained about poor event signage and parking arrangements. That said, we returned home after a three-day stint pleasantly exhausted.

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.
