The world of motorsport has been rocked today by the news that all-time great, Sir Stirling Moss, has sadly passed away at the age of 90.
Widely regarded as one of the finest Formula 1 drivers ever, Sir Stirling had been battling illness for several years having retired from public life in early 2018.
Moss became the first British driver to win a home Grand Prix when he romped to victory at Aintree in 1955 - one of 16 wins he would accumulate over the course of his sparkling career.
Moss was also an outstanding rally driver and, astonishingly, racked up a total of 212 victories in the various forms of motor racing in which he competed.
His electric career was sadly brought to a premature halt as a severe crash at Goodwood in 1962 left him in a coma for a month, and partially paralysed for a further six.
Despite that, he continued to race in exhibition events and legend races right up until the ripe old age of 81.
Sir Stirling was a true legend and will be sorely missed by all those in motor-sport.
May he rest in peace.News Now - Sport News
