Brooklands Museum will hold a one-off event in September to celebrate the life of the legendary Sir Stirling Moss…
The special event at ‘the home of British motor racing’ will include 35 of Moss’s iconic machines and feature live demonstrations of cars raced by Moss on Brooklands’ famous Finishing Straight and Members’ Banking, allowing visitors to experience the sights, smells, and sounds of motor racing from the 1950s and 60s.
Joining the special occasion to be held on Sunday 12 September will be the Rob Walker Racing Lotus 18 which Moss memorably raced to victory at the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix, beating the Ferraris of Richie Ginther and Phil Hill. Also attending will be the Ferguson P99 – the only four-wheel-drive car to win a Formula One race – and a 1958 Vanwall complete with period transporter.
A humble man more interested in talking about the victories of others than his own incredible achievements, Moss was the first President of the Brooklands Members, a role now held by 1996 Formula One World Champion Damon Hill.

Expert commentary of the demonstrations will be provided by broadcaster and author Simon Taylor, while visitors will be able to discover the stories behind these iconic cars through pit lane interviews with their current drivers and owners.
Away from the action on the circuit, there will be paddocks displaying Moss’s race and rally cars, as well as a collection of classic Jaguars from the era and a members’ parking area for owners of period road cars. There will also be live 1960s music and the chance to explore the rest of the museum.
Ticket holders will be able to join the owners and drivers of Moss’s cars and enjoy hospitality in the ‘Brooklands Driving Club’ throughout the day. Tickets for the exclusive club are limited in number.
The Stirling Moss celebration will be a pre-booked ticket event subject to any government restrictions which apply at the time.
