Moss reunited with first love


The BMW 328 campaigned by Sir Stirling Moss in his first competitive event will be reunited with the retired racing legend tomorrow (12 May) at Ellenborough Park.

Moss’ father Alfred handed the car over to the then hopeful to take part in the Harrow Car Club trial in 1947.
At the time, despite being a pre-war design, the 328 was an advanced car with a cross-pushrod straight-six, hemispherical combustion chambers and a tubular chassis.

Sir Stirling is in Gloucester to support the Rotary Club of Cleeve Vale’s ninth annual Prescott hill climb on 13 May. The charity event is expected to attract more than 300 cars from as far back as the early 1900s.

Event organiser Geoff Kimber said: "Every penny raised is donated to a wide number of charities and we hope this year even more people will come to meet the great man and enjoy with us this wonderful day out.”
