Thanks for that, great film!

I don't think Sir Stirling Moss has ever been overtaken so many times in such a short period of time as in that video!
You can imagine some of the stories at the dinner table that evening - "Eh dear, you'll never guess who I overtook today"...!

This is the book I mentioned. Originally published 1955 as Stirling Moss's Book Of Motor Sport; my copy is the second printing of 1956. Quite good!

In 1955 my father gave me a copy of Stirling Moss's book of Motor Sport. In 2005, on the 50th Anniversary of his Mille Miglia victory, the great man autographed it for me. He and Lady Susie were interested in some of the photos in it. A good book for a 14th birthday, I thought,
