I read with interest the account of your visit to David Clark’s establishment and iust for the record write to correct a historical observation made in relation to Tourist Trophy-winning 250GT Ferraris.
You refer to “… Moss’s 1960 TT-winning car, the right-hand drive Rob Walker car which was crashed by Kerrison in the ’61 TT” The 250GTs with which Stirling won the ‘nin 1960 and 1961 were two different cars. The 1960 winner was Chassis No. 2119 GT and gave me six years’ of fantastic motoring before I sold it to Anthony Bamford in December 1972. It was Ferrari red at that time, but the new owner repainted it in the original Rob Walker blue. It was driven in the Historic Race at Le Mans in 1973 by Neil Corner averaging over 100 m.p.h. I believe it to be owned now by Alain de Cadenet.
The 250GT driven by Stirling to win the 1961 TT was Chassis No. 2735 or this is the car subsequently crashed by Kerrison and rebodied in the unattractive manner you describe,
