Lunch with... Sir Stirling Moss

Simon Taylor finds out that life for the man they used to call Mr Motor Racing is more hectic than ever.

Out of the past

An unusual and intriguing correspondence took root in the Daily Telegraph recently. It was started by a Miss E. A. Locke who wrote to say she had held a driving licence for 55 years. This evoked quite a response from other venerable motoring ladies. A Mrs Roche put in a claim on behalf of her grandmother, who has been motoring since June 1911 and still, the letter explained, drives most days at...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted To Old-Car Matters Out Of The Past. . . . When I was exercising that enjoyable motor car, the BMW 628Csi, in Lancashire not long ago I called on Tom Robinson, who used to work for Parry Thomas. I can hear some of you remarking, before you go any further, "Not more about Thomas!" My retort to that is that long books have been written about other British racing drivers of this...

Charity begins at Lords, with hope for tomorrow

To Sir Stirling Moss’s charity dinner at Lord’s, where the only journos in the room were our own Simon Taylor who was compere for the evening, and your correspondent who had blagged a ticket as a ‘guest of’ someone who is altogether more important. Thanks to this obviously significant other, I found myself on the top table with, among others, Martin and Liz Brundle, Sir Stirling and Lady Susie...

Flat chat with Sammy Davis

Le Mans winner, editor and raconteur, 93-year-old Sammy Davis had plenty of tales to tell. Brendan Lynch was his audience Sammy Davis saw Queens Victoria and Elizabeth II, The Titanic and Concorde, Charles Jarrott and James Hunt and survived two World Wars (that claimed his brothers and father). Yet at the age of 93 he had the energy of a teenager, the recall of a computer and an opinion on...

Dan Wheldon 1978-2011

When he crashed to his death at Las Vegas in October, Dan Wheldon was enjoying a renaissance in his career. Wheldon had lost his job with Panther Racing near the end of last year and was without a ride this season, other than a one-off appearance at Indianapolis driving for Bryan Herta's team. Incredibly, he came through to win the Indy 500, and then landed a job testing the new 2012 Dallara...

An Appreciation

S. C. H. Davis With the death of S.C.H. Davis from a heart-attack at his home in Guildford, at the age of a day short of 94, the motoring world has lost one of its most friendly, popular and accomplished characters and motoring sport one of the greatest all-rounders of all time, apart from which Sammy ("Sammy" was the nickname that stuck and best suited him) Davis was a prolific motoring writer,...
