I notice that like the main BBC News website headline, you two can’t spell his name either.

 

RIP Sir Stirling.

Remember seeing him at a Coys historic racing day at Silverstone driving a couple of old Grand Prix cars. Seeing him coming down Vale from Stowe into Club old style racing helmet, googles, sawing away at the big steering wheel with my own eyes was a great moment.

 

 

RIP Sir.

For those of us of a certain age, his legendary status was confirmed when the Police of the era would stop a speeding motorist and say "Who do you think your are? Stirling Moss?

And of course his sister Pat remains the only British woman to have a Greek island named after her.

I was at the Goodwood meeting with my pal and our girlfriends when he crashed, but in those days we did not know what happened until we arrived home and heard the news. We had borrowed his Dad's car and it did not have a radio. Both of us subsequently married the girlfriends and we are all still together. So something good came of it,I think!

I've been there. Lovely place--one of my favourite Greek islands.
