La Carrera Panamericana, Stirling Moss, Jaguar y Ferrari

It was 1954, La Carrera Panamericana was the last race of the international championship, and Ferrari had practically secured the title even before traveling to Mexico.

Stirling Moss had the vision to push Jaguar to be part of La Carrera Panamericana with its D-Type model specially developed to fight in Le Mans. But Stirling Moss did not achieve the agreement of the English car brand, as he saw no reason to risk his team and continue focusing on winning Le Mans.

Maybe it was the right decision, Jaguar won Le Mans in 1955, but they refused to let the world witness what could have been an epic confrontation between Jaguar and Ferrari in the greatest event the automotive world knew at that time, La Carrera Panamericana.
