Moss on Fire

1959 Goodwood Tourist Trophy. After a fine drive in the early part of the race, a pit fire had engulfed the leading Aston Martin of Stirling Moss and Roy Salvadori. Both car and Salvadori burnt, the car had to be retired. In a bid to clinch the 1959 World Sportscar Championship, Moss took over the Aston of Carroll Shelby and Jack Fairman. Here, Stirling driving Aston Martin DBR1/2 blasts out of St.Marys on his way to chasing down the opposition of both the Ferrari 250TRs and Porsche RSK. In one of his epic drives, regaining two to three seconds a lap for hour after hour, he secured the race win and with it, the Championship just two points ahead of Ferrari.
