The decade starts with the emergence of Ferrari, the success of old-fashioned Lago-Talbot cars and the challenge from the American Cunningham team. Jaguar successes begin with the C-type in 1951 and extend through to 1957 with the stunning D-type, which won Le Mans three times. The extraordinary 1955 season when Mercedes-Benz predominated, from the 'high' of Stirling Moss's extraordinary Mille Miglia win to the 'low' of the Le Mans tragedy that killed over 80 spectators. Ferrari versus Maserati was the prime theme of 1956 and 1957, Ferrari winning the World Sports Car Championship both years. New challengers later in the decade in the form of Porsche and Aston Martin.
