60 years after Stirling Moss and Norman Dewis tackled the Mille Miglia in a Jaguar C-Type, equipped with a prototype disc-brake system, the two have reunited at the iconic event.
Piloting another Jaguar C-Type, the pair recreated history by kicking off this year's event by completing a parade lap around Brescia.
Recalling the 1952 race, Moss said "The disc-brakes were incredible. Whereas the Ferrari and Mercedes could all brake once pretty well and then overheat, the Jaguar could repeatedly stop later and faster over and over again, and the Mille Miglia was the ultimate real world test. It was a joint idea between the team - where could we go, on the road, at racing speeds over a thousand miles - and we said if it can do this, then we will have a production brake that we can make available."
