Stirling Moss is an absolute legend. The very name conjures up speed, excitement, heroics and adventure. This is the fascinating story of his early years and his meteoric rise to fame. Based entirely of Sir Stirling's own archives and his personal scrapbooks, diaries and albums, this book is unique. Never before has so much intriguing material been published on, arguably, the greatest racing driver of all time. The full story is here: the Grand Prix racing, the sports and sports racing cars, the rallying exploits, the little 500 racers, the record-breaking, the girls, the friends; there are great names like Fangio, Farina, Ascari, Hawthorn, Collins; many of the most evocative racing cars - C-types and D-types, Maseratis, Coopers, HWMs, Kiefts, XK 120s, Frazer Nashes, Mercedes-Benz W196, BRM; and, Moss is quoted extensively, as his famous rallying sister Pat Moss-Carlsson. They relive and bring alive this formative, and very challenging, period in his life - the early successes, the frustration of bad cars and retirements, the great cars, the circuits, the rivals. This book brings alive the colour, the atmosphere, the danger, the girls and the fun of this wonderful period in motor sport.
