Monte Carlo, Mille Miglia, Nurburgring .
These are the deadliest curves, filled with the legends of men, machines and immortality.
Join me for a tour of the giants of racing, from 1896 through the 1960's, and their pictures and stories.
Blood, victory, defeat and courage; often in the same race.
This is a very rare medal, just under two inches, celebrating the 1954 Mille Miglia Race of Italy. It was an event won by the legendary Alberto Ascari, and this was only a few years before the Portago tragedy snuffed out the annual event.
