Fangio’s 1957, Part 7: Pescara Grand Prix ‑ Moss bites back

Pescara on the Adriatic coast had a starred motorsport history. First won by Enzo Ferrari in 1924, its Coppa Acerbo numbered Tazio Nuvolari, Bernd Rosemeyer and Rudolf Caracciola among its victorious pre-WWII alumni. Its sprawling 16-mile road circuit, however, was bordered by every conceivable hazard as it sped along the coast and wound through several villages of the Abruzzo foothills and thus was reaching the end of its useful life when it was invited to bolster a depleted world championship calendar.
