Sir Stirling Moss Announces Retirement

Sir Stirling Moss, the living legend of motorsport (and surely the Greatest Living Englishman), announced his retirement from motor racing to radiolemans.com this afternoon. He pulled his Porsche RS61 into the pits during practice for the this weekends Le Mans Legends race and announced that he was hanging up his helmet with immediate effect.

The four time F1 World Championship runner up, who is just a couple of months shy of his 82nd birthday, started his competition carreer at Prescott Hillclimb in 1948. He has competed in historic racing ever since his professional carreer ended in a horrible accident at Goodwood in 1962.

Sir Stirling, we will really miss seeing you in action on the track, but hope that you & Lady Moss can now enjoy your retirement!

  1. Sir Stirling Moss is more eloquent and articulate than a great deal of ‘professional’ sporting pundits. What a legendary gentleman.
