Background: Stirling Moss of Britain won the 1,000 kilometre, (625 miles) international sports car race at Nueburg Ring, on Sunday, June 1st., in an Aston Martin.
Another Briton, Mike Hathorn, was second--in a Ferrari, Germany's Count Berghe Von Trips was third, also in a Ferrari.
Moss was teamed with Jack Brabham, Australia, but it was Moss who did most of the driving in this major triumph for an English car.
Their time was 7hr.23mins.33secs.--an average speed of 84.25 mph. In the third lap Moss set up a new track record of 88.06mph. Hawthorn and Collins finished in 7hr.27mins.17secs. for an average of 84mph. Like Moss, Hawthorn did most of the driving in his team.
Tony Brooks, after keeping his Aston Martin in fourth place for hours, took a bad spill in the fourty-first lap. His car was damaged by Tony climbed out unhurt.
After the race had finished, Erwin Bauer, of Germany, in a Ferrari, was signalled to stop. He apparently did not notice the flag, tried to overtake another car and smacked into a tree. Bauer was taken to hospital with a suspected factured skull. His car was wrecked.
