Stirling Stars at the NEC
Daredevil tales, burning questions and the chance to meet a motor racing legend – Sir Stirling Moss OBE is set to star at this year’s Classic Motor Show.
Sixty years since his world-famous Mille Miglia victory, the motor racing icon is set to draw the crowds to the Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance stand – 210 in Hall 5 - where he will meet and greet visitors, sign autographs and answer any burning questions during a Q&A session on the second day of the show, Saturday 14th November, at Birmingham’s NEC.
Autograph sessions will take place on the stand at 11.30am and 4.15pm and the Q&A session will begin at 3.15pm. In conjunction with The Signature Store, Sir Stirling will also be signing copies of his new book ‘My Racing Life’ within the Silverstone Auctions area in Hall 2 at 12.45pm.
A pictorial history of his illustrious career, the book has been launched to coincide with the 60th anniversary of his ground-breaking Mille Miglia victory, in which he and navigator Denis Jenkinson smashed the existing race time in a Mercedes 300 SLR, to set an unbeaten record of ten hours, seven minutes and 48 seconds.
He will relive some of the thrilling takes from his glittering motor racing career and answer some probing questions posed by TV’s Mike Brewer on the Wheeler Dealers Live Stage at 11am.
As part of a packed agenda, he will also meet up with a range of classic vehicle clubs during the day. Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance, based in the West Midlands, has enjoyed a long-standing working partnership with Sir Stirling Moss, and company Director Peter James said he is delighted to host him at the show once again.
He said: “I have been working with Stirling for almost 40 years now, and it is sometimes easy to forget what an iconic figure he really is – many of his motor racing achievements are simply breath-taking, there has never been anyone else like him.
“We are extremely proud to work with ‘Our Stirling’ and long may that continue.”
