After finishing the piece on the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SLR I’ve decided that today I’m going to write about Stirling Moss. This brilliant picture of Moss shows him at an unspecified Formula 1 race in the late 1950’s rehydrating with what appears to be champagne.
In this video he takes us on a few flying laps of the Donington Park circuit in the UK and talks us through the laps as well as throwing in some historical tidbits and comparisons to modern day F1 cars.
In 1957 the MG Car Company arrived at the Bonneville Salt Flats with an unusually shaped vehicle and legendary racing driver Stirling Moss. The car was called the MG EX 181 and it was entered into the Class F land-speed series for cars with engines between 1.1 and 1.5 litres.
