The 1955 British Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Aintree on 16 July 1955. It was race 6 of 7 in the 1955 World Championship of Drivers. British driver Stirling Moss led a Mercedes 1–2–3–4 domination of the race, to win his first Formula One race narrowly ahead of his illustrious Argentine teammate Juan Manuel Fangio. Several people, including Moss, believed that the Argentine allowed his British protegé to claim his debut win in front of his home crowd. This was, however, at Moss’ inquiry, consistently denied by Fangio, who claimed that Moss “was simply faster that day.”
This large 18x12in photograph titled ‘The Train’ as a reference to how closely Moss and Fangio followed each other during their season with The Silver Arrows, shows the pair racing across the start finish line in front of a packed grandstand at Aintree. Stirling has signed the photo and added ‘The Train’ next to his autograph, full COA provided, print is unmounted, rolled for worldwide delivery.
