The Anonymous Widower

At Least The Second Greatest Driver Of All Time

Sadly,Sir Stirling Moss died today.

Strangely, he is one of the few celebrities, with whom, I have shaken hands. Most of the others were probably jockeys before or after a race.

It was at Olympia, where I went with my family to see the Christmas equestrian event. Sir Stirling was one of the celebrities running round the crowd collecting money for charity in a bucket.

How many of today’s celebrities would do that?

My greatest memory of Sir Stirling was watching on the TV, as he won the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix.

He was driving an underpowered Lotus 18 and throughout the race he fought off three Ferraris to win by a few seconds.
