Sir Stirling Moss - Goodwood 2015

Over the summer I had another trip to the Goodwood Festival of Speed with my friend Phil Holt from Web Foundry. It was another great weekend of cars, motor bikes, good weather and a glass or two of good champagne. Not forgetting taking hundreds of photographs as well. 

The highlight for me was arriving in the paddock just as Sir Stirling Moss was waiting in line to take the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR '722' up the hill climb.

Of course the line in the back of your mind is - 'So who do you think you are then? Stirling Moss?' The words were never uttered - of course.

Jackie Stewart was there too. Here he is on the way back down the hill waving to the crowds.
