I asked Arthur if he remembers this, thankfully he does, it was his 8th birthday, and he got a result. 2 days before Stirlings 84th.
That's a great photo.

Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Sir Stirling Moss had a great fan here, Georges Houel aka Jojo. They finished second in the Tour Auto 1956 with a 300 SL and it seems that both shared with my Dad a refined taste for nice ladies. I spent a lot of wonderful nights with Jojo in his restaurant Le Volant, Paris. We had a lot of fun listening his stories about le bon vieux temps. Dad and Jojo were not the best friends ever thats what happens when the competition is raging…

It's worth the wait EB, it is a gem of a book for the likes of the true enthusiast.

One of the best reads recounting the bygone motor racing era in which Stirling participated, it relates some real eye openers of not only the race( the '57 Pescara GP) but the drivers and their antics:

My copy of 1953 Stirling Moss book arrived today
Thanks it shows what a wide selection of cars he drove
Good guidance by bauble
Best six quid spent in last six weeks
None of these books including the Edwards job touch on his liking of getting getting most Dosh he could in any situation!
Perhaps he should have had that season with Ferrari!

If you haven't already bought, Abe Books are listing one in Australia.

I see you haven't changed over the years then John.

Get a copy, you will not regret it.

Funny you should say that - only yesterday a friend sent me a photo he had found of me at Silverstone in 1997 & I haven't changed at all (well, only a little bit). Only problem is we haven't a clue what the occasion was - it's not a race meeting, possibly a Ford press event - and I have no idea who I am talking to in the picture! I can confirm it's not you.

And yes, I've just splashed out on a rather expensive signed copy, so the book on eBay on the French Grand Prix by our dear departed friend David Hodges might have to wait.
