My Cinquanta Miglia.
Spoiler alert. I just ran my first Mille Miglia Storica, in a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing with Steve Cannon, the head of MBUSA. Unfortunately, we completed our turn in one of the world’s most grueling, prestigious vintage events after a mere fifty of its 1000 miles. I have often said — in the context of twenty-four-hour races I have driven or crewed for — if you’re going to break, it’s much better to break in the first hour than the last.
