Stirling Moss Memorial Day

Never been to Brooklands?  Next Sunday (12 September) might be the perfect day to visit the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit and help celebrate the life of renowned and much loved Sir Stirling Moss, the first President of the Brooklands Trust Members.

It was said, that if it had wheels, Moss would race it, and that includes a ride-on lawnmower and his personal race-kart.

Iconic vehicles making an appearance include his 1954 OSCA, 1959 Cooper Monaco, 1961 Ferrari 250GT, and the privately entered Lotus 18 that he used to great effect to win the Monaco Grand Prix in 1961, against the might of the new Ferraris.

Take a nostalgic step back in time and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the 1950s style paddock. See over 30 of Stirling’s cars, meet their owners, and enjoy the displays and parades at this one-off dedicated event.  Simon Taylor, one time Editor of Autosport, a man who knew Moss well, will provide commentary.

There’ll be live entertainment, food stands, and hospitality as well as the rest of the Museum to enjoy.  And of course visit Concorde, and take in what is a living museum of aviation history.

Sir Stirling Moss OBE passed away Easter Sunday 2020 aged 90.
