Other star machines include the Aston Martin DB3S he and Peter Collins took to second at Le Mans in 1956 and the DBR1 Moss used to win the 1958 Nürburgring 1000km. There will also be ex-Moss Jaguar C-types, a Cooper T49 and the one-of-a-kind Ferguson P99 four-wheel-drive grand prix car that he drove to its sole circuit racing victory in the 1961 International Gold Cup.
The Revival will also play host to the second running of the Moss Memorial Trophy, which made its first appearance during last year’s closed-doors Speedweek event. The race – formerly the Kinrara Trophy – caters for GT cars that raced up to 1962.
A third helping of the Moss Trophy will also take place during the 78th Members’ Meeting in October (16-17) to round out the schedule.
Moss and Goodwood have been intrinsically linked since the very start of ‘The Boy’s’ career. Moss made his racing debut at Goodwood on September 18, 1948, winning the day after his 19th birthday. Across his career, Moss took part in 56 races at the track, winning 21 of them and finishing on the podium a further 13 times. Moss also took four Tourist Trophy wins at Goodwood: two for Ferrari and two for Aston Martin, one of which helped clinch Aston’s sole World Sports Car Championship crown in 1959. Moss also suffered his career-ending accident at the track in April 1962.
Speaking about the plans, the Duke of Richmond said: “Stirling and his wife Susie were such an important part of the Goodwood family for so many years. All of us here felt his loss especially keenly as we weren’t able to commemorate his incredible life as we would have liked last year.
“We hope that fans at our events, and around the world, will join us in celebrating his racing career and bidding farewell to ‘Mr Goodwood’ in 2021. Stirling’s supreme skill and love for his sport will continue to be remembered at Goodwood for many years to come.”
