Sir Stirling Moss OBE
Find out why motor racing legend Sir Stirling Moss OBE chose to endorse the WMS Group’s flagship used car scheme, Safe and Sound. As seen on television.
“Buying a car is a big decision and Safe and Sound brings with it peace of mind – removing those niggling doubts about safety, car history, real mileage and even if you’re paying a fair price.” – Sir Stirling
Sir Stirling Moss OBE is arguably the greatest motor racing driver of all time, a true icon and a household name. Known during his career as ‘Mr Motor Racing’, Sir Stirling became a professional driver in 1948 at the age of 18, racing a Cooper 500. Later on, he then led the changeover to rear-engine Formula 1 cars with the Cooper-Climax, achieving the first victory for such a car at the 1958 Argentine Grand Prix. The 1961 Monaco Grand Prix was to become his third Formula 1 victory around Principality and is still regarded as one of the best F1 races to date after he raced a Lotus 18 against the more powerful Ferrari’s.
During Stirling’s remarkable career, he won 212 historic races out of the 529 entered and drove 107 different types of car across all classes of motor sport. It is Sir Stirling’s reputation as a fantastic driver that led us to approach him to endorse Safe and Sound. We were delighted when he agreed to work with us as he truly believe the scheme offers peace of mind to used car buyers, whilst simultaneously improving standards across the motor industry.
