Fact or fancy?

Those who recall Stirling Moss in advertisements for Craven A Cigarettes can be excused for being puzzled by the statement, in heavy type, that appeared in an interview with Moss by Nancy Spain in Woman dated August 25th and which read: “Stirling has never smoked, never drunk, could always run one hundred yards in under ten seconds (Olympic standard).” What is far more interesting to the motor racing world is that in this interview Nancy Spain disclosed that Colin Chapman had agreed “after a blistering argument” to allow Moss a racing car in which to test his reactions, on return from a holiday in the Bahamas.” May this be soon—and successful!
