Sir Stirling Moss has joined the party when Race Retro celebrates its tenth anniversary from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th February 2013 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. Moss, one of the most iconic names in British motorsports, will appear Saturday 23rd February.
His professional career began at the age of 18 in 1948, winning his first race in a Cooper Jap 500cc at Brough Aerodrome. He would go on to win a staggering 212 races, including 16 Grand Prix wins. His first GP win was the 1955 British Grand Prix, and during ten years in F1, Sir Stirling drove for Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Vanwall, Cooper and Race Retro’s chosen marque for 2013 – Lotus.
Sir Stirling will appear on the live interview stage for Q&A sessions as well as signing autographs and memorabilia for fans attending. He will share the stage with another iconic name in motorsports, former F1 commentator Murray Walker, who appears on Saturday and Sunday.
As well as the live interview stage with its special guests, enthusiasts can enjoy an array of racing and rallying cars, live action demonstrations, motorcycles, Silverstone Auctions’ racing and classic sale, hundreds of traders and even get behind the wheel for a drive in a fully prepared rally car.
Adult tickets for Race Retro start at £20 in advance with children’s tickets at £5 for Friday and Saturday and free on Sunday. Car parking is free and has been moved to a hard surface area nearer to the halls. The show is open from 9.30am each day and closes at 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday and 4.30pm on Sunday.
