Sergeant M. .J. Moon. in his letter ” A Car Breaker ?,” is repeating the query whir+ has been asked for quite while now when he asks. “Is Moss a good driver with at super jinx. or just a very fast one ?” He just needs to take a look at the results of last year’s races and read the reports on these events for I he answer. Moss was undoubtedly at his best in the Nurburgring 1,000 km. sportssear race and in the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood. He wit, master at Lisbon, when he lapped all the others and won in it car
with it gearbox which needed -very carefol and gentle It At Monza. with the ” help ” of the Ferrari team manager. he had another ermvineing victory. Surely this proves that Moss is no earbreaker, and both Rob Walker arid Alf Franeis have backed that up. No !earn boss would let a ” wrecker ” thrive his ears for as Malty rates as Stirling Moss has for the Walker Equipe io recent years. The Moss jut x is an old story.
Despite the fact that I was quite pleased to see jack Brabham become World Champion he was certainly very lucky, and 1 do not think that he will have the same hick this year. The Owen Racing Organisation has three very fast and reliable drivers in Joakbn Bonnier, Graharn Hill and Dan Gurney, and with the feeling that this may be B.R.M.’s year I think the Championship could easily go to one of Alfred Owen’s drivers.
Colin Chapman seem, to have found a very fast machine in the rear-engined Lotus. which. if it can last the pare, may well take limes Ireland to the Championship.
I do not think that. the Cooper Car Cll. will produce another World Champion but perhaps Enzu Ferrari’s cars may he. driven by the. 1900 World Champion.
The man with the greatest chance of winning the most points is, a course. Stirling Moss.. the master. and chief contender for the title. Whether he takes the Championship front Jack Brabham or not he will still remain the world’s greatest ran iii’ driver. I am. Yours. etc.,
