Moss wins in own OSCA

Fifty-four years after he won the Sebring 12 Hours in an OSCA, Sir Stirling Moss took his own version to a class victory in the one-hour Woodcote Trophy race at Spa.

Moss, sharing the drive with Roger Earl, raced the OSCA FS372 that he bought two years ago and entrusted to Hall and Hall for restoration. In its first race, they won the up to 1500cc drum-braked class.

“It came as a box of bits,” said Rick Hall. “Stirling has always wanted an OSCA. He also managed to buy the only desmodromic head ever made for the OSCA, from Alfieri Maserati, which makes the car even more unusual.”
