Mercedes 1955 – Beating the Odds to the Constructors Championship Demo Day

Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum 6825-31 Norwitch Drive, Philadelphia

Stirling Moss, The Champion that Wasn’t Demo Day

Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum 6825-31 Norwitch Drive, Philadelphia

Throughout his life, Stirling Moss was called the man who made the impossible, possible. In just a seven-year period between 1955 and 1961 Moss would finish the World Championship as a runner-up on four occasions, and in third place three other times. In his 14 year racing career, Moss would notch 212 victories out of 529 races entered, equaling an astonishing 40% win rate. However, despite this incredible record, Moss would leave the sport of racing, having never been a world-champion, despite the fact that he might have given the opportunity.
