Stuttgart. Every Mille Miglia makes it possible to relive great moments from the history of motor racing. Mercedes-Benz, automotive sponsor of the Mille Miglia 2016, plays an important part in this too, as the brand is closely associated with this legendary racing event, which was originally staged as a road race between 1927 and 1957. Today's regularity race evokes memories of great sporting triumphs, such as the victories of Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes-Benz SSKL at the 1931 Mille Miglia and Stirling Moss at the wheel of a 300 SLR in 1955.
