Description

**signed by Stirling Moss**

Released in celebration of his 80th birthday, this volume in the popular series follows Sir Stirling Moss through his most turbulent, demanding, and ultimately, successful racing years.

During this period, Moss’ career was at its zenith. By 1960, he had secured his reputation as the greatest motor racing driver in the world, although the title of World Champion still, frustratingly, eluded him.

He dominated every racing arena. In Formula One he secured numerous landmark victories, including first GP wins for Vanwall, Cooper, and Lotus. In Formula Two, he was all-conquering, driving Rob Walker’s Cooper-Borgward and he helped Aston Martin to victory in the World Sports Car Championship.

Yet, for all his adaptability, Moss’ rise was far from simple. Racing first with Maserati, then Vanwall, and finally the privateer Rob Walker team, he struggled frequently with the restrictions of his machinery and the demands of technological change as F1 moved from front- to rear-engine racers.

Off track too, things were far from simple as the pressures of fame coupled with the dangers of the sport impacted devastatingly on his personal life. Hardback as new still in original card case, **signed by Stirling Moss**
