Mille Miglia 1957: The Minor Classes

    By

    It was however, also a race characterised by a bitter struggle amongst the Maranello marque's drivers, a duel that never happened with Moss and Jenkinson's Maserati 450S and the last career win for Piero Taruffi. Behind all this, there was also another story, one equally as fascinating and rich in incident, that of the crews racing in the minor classes: from the Tuned Touring and the 750 classes to the Gran Turismo and Sport 750 and 1000 categories. This previously neglected story of "little" cars and almost unknown drivers is recounted by Carlo Dolcini, a painstaking and accurate historian, who has reconstructed in engrossing detail the "minor" episodes of those days, drawing on a wealth of photographic documentation.
