The Definitive Biography
Volume 1 of this all inclusive biography of the legendary Striling Moss covers his early life and career.
Starting as a youth with incredible skill, young Stirling Moss quickly caught the eye when racing the 500cc cars invented just after the WWII. He soon ventured abroad and was laughed at for his tiny car – until he beat them.
He became the British Champion at 21, something most drivers achieve in their 30’s, 40’s, or even 50’s. Patriotically, Moss insisted on driving British cars, even when outmatched by more powerful, foreign vehicles. He often won.
Admirable patriotism nearly ruined his promising career until he was forced to compromise, and quickly revived his career; showing he could beat the very best at the highest levels.
In the final year covered by Vol 1, he won his first Grand Prix and such sports car classics as the Tourist Trophy, the Targa Florio, all amazing achievements, but Moss winning the Mille Miglia has gone down as one of the greatest feats in all sport.
