"Candid interview material and race footage covering Moss's 14-year racing
career - and his busy life after competition" Autosport
Sir Stirling Moss is a true sporting legend, a man whose exceptional skills
and determined character saw him overcome the odds again and again on his
way to victory in motorsport's most famous events. Although never crowned
Formula One World Champion, Moss is rightly regarded as one of the greatest
In 1963, after recovering from an horrific accident which
nearly cost his life, Moss retired from racing. In our first film from the
BP archive, he talks openly about his career, cars, rivals and leaving the
sport which had been his life. In conversation with Raymond Baxter at
Goodwood - scene of his career-ending accident - he reflects on his time
with BRM, ERA, Maserati, Mercedes, Vanwall and Lotus, why he never raced
for Ferrari and what he thought about the other racing greats of the era.
The revealing interview is interspersed with archive race footage and photos.
From the emotional pain of losing the F1 World Championship by a single
point to the physical pain of his awful 1962 crash, Moss speaks candidly
about a life lived at full speed, including the personal cost of racing
and celebrity. We look inside his London home, and discover which of his
more than 450 races he considers the greatest.
In Moss on the Monte, he visits the 1967 Monte-Carlo Rally and explains
how the sport works with input from greats like Paddy Hopkirk. Moss - The
First Ten Years is a fascinating retrospective charting his career in
archive footage from Grand Prix and sportscar racing, including the
legendary Le Mans showdowns. Finally, Two Laps of Honour showcases his
incredible skills at the Monaco and European GPs of 1961, guiding his
Rob Walker Lotus to unlikely wins ahead of the all-conquering Ferraris.
