Stirling Moss, The Champion that Wasn’t Demo Day

September 4, 2021 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

General Admission

Throughout his life, Stirling Moss was called the man who made the impossible, possible.  In just a seven-year period between 1955 and 1961 Moss would finish the World Championship as a runner-up on four occasions, and in third place three other times. In his 14 year racing career, Moss would notch 212 victories out of 529 races entered, equaling an astonishing 40% win rate. However, despite this incredible record, Moss would leave the sport of racing, having never been a world-champion, despite the fact that he might have given the opportunity.

Join us as we take a closer look at this legendary figure in racing and recount his successes both on, and off the track.
