Stirling Moss on the way to winning the 1955 British Grand Prix at Aintree in the Silver Arrows. It was the first time an Englishman had triumphed in the race. He held off a stiff challenge from his Mercedes-Benz team mate, world champion Juan Manuel Fangio who led for the first couple of laps of the race but was overtaken by Moss on the third lap. The Argentinian regained the lead on lap 18 but by lap 26, Moss was in front once more. He kept first place for the rest of the 90 laps, in spite of a strong last-lap challenge by Fangio at Tatts Corner. The two silver Mercs crossed the line almost together; Mercedes also came 3rd and 4th.
