Stirling Moss Honored Guest at Lime Rock Historics 2012

Sir Stirling Moss portrait photoSir Stirling Moss will be honored guest at Lime Rock Historic Festival 2012, to be held Labor Day weekend on August 31st – September 3rd.

The 30th annual Lime Rock Historics will see Sir Stirling Moss speak and take questions at the Friday evening Participants Gala, in addition to being available at various times throughout the weekend for autograph sessions. Moss will also join the judging ranks for the Sunday in the Park Concours, and plans are afoot to bring, for display and demo laps, examples of the cars with which he achieved his greatest victories.

While Moss never won the Formula One World Championship, finishing second several times, he was, in the minds of most qualified observers, the most talented all-rounder of all time. Moss won races in Formula One, sports cars, touring cars, road races and rallies. Among his more famous victories are the Mille Miglia, the Targa Florio, the Monaco Grand Prix, the Alpine Rally, the Tourist Trophy, the Sebring 12 Hours and the German Grand Prix.

Moss drove for Jaguar, Vanwall, Cooper, BRM, Maserati, Aston Martin, Porsche, and made occasional appearances in Ferraris. Amongst his peers – drivers such as Gurney, Brooks, Fangio, Hill, Salvadori and Shelby – he was known as absolutely the man to beat. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to and achievements in motor racing, Sir Stirling will be present throughout the Lime Rock Historic Festival 30 vintage car racing weekend.
