Magazine articles by Ken Purdy about Sir Sterling's exploits got this California teenager interested in F1 in 1960. We were lucky to have this giant with us until 2020. So many of his peers never lived to see their prime.

RIP Sir Stirling Moss

Even with all the current onslaught of breaking bad news, seeing this really hit home. To me he epitomized that rare combination of otherworldly skill and rue character, always a gentleman even in competition. Truly one of the greatest, he will be sorely missed.

Indeed.

My son grew up watching "Roary the racing car", narrated by him.
