Sir Stirling Moss has passed away aged 90 after a long illness. He passed away in the early hours of Easter morning.
Lady Moss was at his bedside as he died, having nursed him through a long illness, at their Mayfair house. Sir Moss passed away as a result of a chest infection he caught in Singapore 2016.
Sir Stirling Moss’s fame was secured in the years after the Second World War by his style and skill that earned him acclaim as the greatest all-round racer ever.
He won 212 of his 529 races in every conceivable kind of car. While he never won the Formula One World Title because of his preference of British machinery. Among Sir Stirling Moss’s greatest victories were the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix, in which he triumphed in his Lotus against the faster Ferraris, and the 1955 Mille Miglia – where he set a new course record in the famous 1,000-mile race around Italy.
His career at the top level of motorsport racing came to an end in 1962 after a crash at Goodwood that left him in a coma for a month and partially paralysed for six months.
