A very personal video into the life of one of motorsport’s most loved icons Sir Stirling Moss has been revealed.
If motorsport is your thing, this video of Sir Stirling Moss looking back on his life on track, should pull on a few nostalgia strings.
Made in collaboration with the Credit Suisse Classic Car Program, Sir Stirling can be seen talking at his London home with motorsport journalist, broadcaster and Goodwood commentator Henry Hope-Frost, Sir Stirling reminisces about his life on the racetrack.
The 85-year-old chats candidly ahead of the 18th running of the Goodwood Revival, this weekend. He talks of his 15-year professional career throughout the 1950s and early-60s, with 2015 marking the 60th anniversary of his victories in the three big sportscar internationals; the Mille Miglia, the Tourist Trophy and the Targa Florio – and his breakthrough win in Formula 1 at the British Grand Prix.
He also touches on his failure to add Le Mans 24 Hours victory to his tally in the wake of the infamous accident that led to Mercedes withdrawing from the race when Moss had a comfortable lead.
The actual wood-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel with which he took all four wins, can also be seen in the video:
