Article by Christian Andrei, on November 16, 2012

On the tenth anniversary of the international historic motorsport show Race Retro, there will be many famous personalities in the field, one of whom is motor racing legend Sir Stirling Moss. The show will take place on Feb. 22 to 24 next year at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. Sir Stirling, an icon in British motorsport, will be seen on February 23.

Sir Stirling, who is regarded by many to be the greatest all-round racing driver of all time, will surely draw fans from all ages. He started driving professionally in 1948 when he was 18. This was when he was named the winner of his first race at Brough Aerodrome, driving a Cooper Jap 500cc. He never looked back after that and won 212 more races, which include 16 victories at the Grand Prix. He won his first GP at the 1955 British Grand Prix.

He participated at the F1 for 10 years, driving for Mercedes Benz, Maserati, Vanwall, Cooper and Lotus, which is Race Retro’s selected marque for 2013. Even as he retired from professional racing in 1962, Sir Stirling continues to be present in motorsport. Race Retro is pleased for the attendance of a motorsport icon on its anniversary. Fans who will visit will be glad to know that Sir Stirling will be on the live interview stage for Q&A sessions and he will also sign autographs and memorabilia.

Former F1 commentator Murray Walker, another famous personality, will be sharing the stage with him. Walker will make his appearance on Saturday and Sunday. There’s no chance for motorsport fans to be bored with the various activities in store for them. There will be display of racing and rallying cars and rare motorcycles. They can view high octane live action demonstrations, join the Silverstone Auctions’ racing and classic sale, meet multiple traders and they may also get the chance to drive a fully prepared rally car.
