Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1929-1954
By Phillip Porter
This fascinating book tells the story of the formative years of one of the greatest racing drivers of all time.
It’s all in this book! Moss’s meteoric rise through the junior ranks with the little F3 500s, the big break with a borrowed XK120, the highs and lows with HWM when he took on the best in their more powerful Ferraris and shook the big names, the great drives and successes with Jaguar in the TT and at Le Mans, missing a Monte Carlo Rally win at the first attempt by mere seconds, the frustrating years when he put patriotism first and soldiered on with inadequate machinery and, finally, 1954 – the year when it all came right on the international stage.
