It is with great sadness that we announce Sir Stirling Moss passed away peacefully in the early hours of Easter Sunday. Tonight we pay our respects.
Widely known as ‘the greatest driver to never to win the world championship’, Sir Stirling finished runner-up on four occasions from 1955-61. Moss drove his first professional race in 1948 when he was 18 in a Cooper 500 and during a career that spanned 14 years would go on to win 16 of the 66 F1 races in which he competed impressively across all categories of his 375 finishes, he won 212. In 1955 he was signed by Mercedes Benz to race in F1 alongside the great Juan Manuel Fangio, who beat him to the title. However that year he also delivered one of the most exceptional drives of his generation during the Mille Miglia, a punishing road race in Italy. Driving a Mercedes-Benz 300SLR he set a new record and beat Fangio by 32 minutes.
Between 1955 and 1961 Moss was second in the F1 championship four times, twice more to Fangio, and third on three further occasions. Moss also scored two second place finishes at the Le Mans 24 Hours in a Jaguar and an Aston Martin, including a class win in 1956 and won both the Sebring 12 Hours and the 12 hours of Reims. However, he is perhaps mostly associated with Goodwood as it was the scene of his first and last races, he became a patron of the Festival of Speed and ever-present at the Goodwood Revival where he was always mobbed by fans and well-wishers. Moss retired from racing in 1962. He crashed his Lotus heavily during the Glover Trophy at Goodwood on Monday April 23 and later retired from public life a little over two years ago because of ongoing health problems.
Tonight we pay tribute to his legacy by racing in the Mercedes 300SLR and Maserati 250F around the legendary Goodwood Circuit.
