Snapshot, 1956: Things are looking up for Moss and Collins
Knowing Moss, the subject of the group’s attention could well be an attractive woman up high in the main grandstand but, alas, we’ll never know. What will soon become clear is that, while Moss and Collins will put up a fair fight in their beautiful Aston Martin, they’ll ultimately have to settle for second place, behind Ninian Sanderson and Ron Flockhart’s Ecurie Ecosse Jaguar D-type. By the end of the year, Moss will have clocked up several wins but the trophy he really lusts after, the Formula 1 World Championship, will once again elude him… by a desperately small three points.
