Happy 90th Birthday Sir Stirling Moss

Sir Stirling Moss reaches his 90th birthday today (17th September), and Goodwood extends its warmest wishes to him and his family on this landmark occasion.

At this weekend’s Goodwood Revival a special celebration was held in Sir Stirling’s honour, at which the Duke of Richmond addressed a capacity crowd and drivers including four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, nine-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner Tom Kristensen, three-time Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti, five-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner and 1986 World Sportscar champion Derek Bell.

Following the address, the Duke accompanied Sir Stirling’s wife, Lady Susie Moss, in an Aston Martin DBR1 – a car synonymous with Moss and Goodwood – at the head of a parade that numbered some of his most celebrated cars. What follows is the Duke’s touching address.
