The first authorised biography of one of Britain's best-loved sportsmen. A special illustrated edition reissued to celebrate Moss's 85th birthday.
Sir Stirling Moss OBE is arguably the greatest all-round racing driver of all time and a true icon of the motor-racing world. Known during his career as 'Mr Motor Racing' he became a professional driver in 1948, at the age of 18, racing a Cooper 500. For four years he finished runner-up in the Formula 1 Drivers World Championship. His sportsmanship at the Portuguese GP allowed Mike Hawthorn to win the 1958 Championship title by half a point at his expense. He raced 107 different types of car, across all classes of motor sport, during his remarkable career. After 20 years as a City and Wall Street analyst and trader, Robert Edwards wrote his first book on a private passion: Aston Martin cars. Since then he has written many books in the field of motor racing including ARCHIE AND THE LISTERS, voted both book of the year and of the decade by the motoring press. He is a regular contributor to MOTOR SPORT and the DAILY TELEGRAPH.
