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. This Demo Day took a closer look at this legendary figure in racing and recounted his successes both on, and off the track.

The following Cars were featured: 1953 Jaguar C-Type, 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe, 1956 Jaguar D-Type, 1956 Maserati 300S, and 1958 Aston Martin DBR1.
