Written by a master story-teller, this nostalgic book recalls motor racing highlights from half a century ago, when the sport was passionate, heroic and highly dangerous. Pivotal moments in that eventful summer of 1955 include Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson winning the Mille Miglia, Alberto Ascari crashing into the harbor at the Monaco Grand Prix, the spectator catastrophe at Le Mans, and Juan Manuel Fangio's apparent gift of victory to Moss in the British Grand Prix.
