Sir Stirling Moss Says He’s Retiring From Public Life

Sir Stirling Moss has announced that he will retire from public life, bringing to an end decades of public roles since his retirement from racing.

On the legendary racer’s personal website, his son Elliot said that Sir Stirling made the decision in order to spend more time with his wife and family.

“To all of his many friends and fans around the world, who use this website for regular updates, my father would like to announce that he will be closing it down. Following his severe infections at the end of 2016 and his subsequent slow and arduous recovery, the decision has been made that, at the age of 88, the indefatigable man will finally retire, so that he and my mother can have some much deserved rest and spend more time with each other and the rest of the family.

“The entire and extended Moss clan thank everyone for all their love and support over the years and we wish you all a happy and prosperous 2018,” Elliot Moss concluded.

During his tenure in Formula One, Sir Stirling Moss claimed six wins, 24 podiums, and 16 pole positions. Interestingly, he never won a championship, but did have great success in other races, including the Mille Miglia.
