Our October issue will be one to remember, a special edition that will feature Sir Stirling Moss as our guest editor to celebrate his forthcoming 80th birthday.
A collection of features to mark the occasion will make this issue unmissable, as Britain’s greatest racing driver takes his first desk job!
The highlights will include Stirling looking back at a selection of the rivals he raced against and the cars he drove during his 14-year career from 1948 to 1962, when a crash at Goodwood brought a premature end to his great career.
Since then, the Moss name has continued to resonate through the generations. Simon Taylor interviews him to discover how he has lived for 47 years as a retired racing driver.
We also feature an extract from Stirling’s new book, published by Haynes, in which he recounts every one of his 585 races. Our extract will focus on a month from his career to highlight the breadth and depth of races he could squeeze in during a four-week period.
Deputy editor Gordon Cruickshank interviews Ken Gregory, considered by many as the first professional driver manager – fittingly for the man considered to be the first professional racer in the modern sense.
We bring Stirling’s story right up to date with his new role as a star of childrens’ TV on Roary the Racing Car, while Nigel Roebuck reflects on Moss’s close friendship with Motor Sport’s famed Continental Correspondent Denis Jenkinson.
