Stirling Moss Celebration
Latest plans for the 12th September event
06 July 2021
On 12 September 2021, we will be presenting a special tribute to our former President Sir Stirling Moss OBE who passed away in April 2020. Stirling, who was our first President, began racing in 1948, was one of the most famous and recognisable figures in motorsport from the 1950s to the present day.
The event will be a celebration of Stirling’s racing life and the centrepiece will be a unique collection of over 35 Moss-driven cars, including the Rob Walker Team winning 1960 Monaco GP Lotus 18, the F1 Fergusson P99 4‐wheel drive as well as a 1958 F1 Vanwall and transporter. We will also be holding live demonstrations on the finishing straight, and members banking as well as driver/owner pitlane interviews.
Among the cars already booked for the occasion we have:
- 1954 OSCA
- 1958 Vanwall F1
- 1951 HWM F2
- 1957 Leyland Royal Tiger Vanwall Transporter
- 1959 Cooper Monaco
- 1960 Walker-Climax
- 1960 Lotus 18
- 1961 Ferguson P99
- 1961 Ferrari 250GT
Your commentator for the event will be motoring broadcaster and author Simon Taylor. In addition, there will be static displays of Classic Jaguars and 1950s/60s period cars, a 1960s Paddock, Brooklands Drivers Club and live 1960s music.
Brooklands Members can join the owners & drivers of the wonderful Moss cars in the ‘Brooklands Driving Club’ throughout the day. Advanced tickets to the Brooklands Driving Club are £40pp and include all-day tea & coffee, breakfast roll, and a self-service buffet lunch. The Italian F1 Grand Prix will be shown during the day. These exclusive tickets are limited in number.
The main event will be free for Brooklands Members, via a pre‐booked ticket only. Normal entry prices will apply for all other visitors.
Tickets go on sale soon, so be sure to book now in case numbers have to be limited.
Work has begun behind the scenes to prepare for this prestigious event. Last week materials kindly donated by Champions Timber arrived for the specially designed place markers that will tell the history of each vehicle.
