The Goodwood Revival celebrated the life of Sir Stirling Moss with a race dedicated to him and an on- track parade with a special selection of his racing cars “He was surely the greatest ambassador for British motor racing the sport has ever seen. He will never be forgotten at Goodwood”. These are the words of the Duke of Richmond, responsible for all racing activity in Goodwood in modern times. When Sir Stirling Moss passed away on 12 th  of April 2020, aged 90, it was the end of an era for Goodwood. Not only was Stirling a giant figure in the circuit`s original period from 1948 to 1966, but he was also a key supporter of the Festival of Speed and the Revival when motorsport returned to Goodwood in the 1990`s. Delayed by the pandemic, Goodwood celebrated Moss` incredible successful career at last weeks` Revival Meeting with a special race dedicated to him, and an on-track parade with a large number of his racing cars. Not only did he win his first and his last race in Goodwood, he also had his career ending accident here in 1962. Stirling was always “Mr. Goodwood”, here he won many races in many different cars and he was a Patron for all activities at the circuit in the last twenty years. Moss was always an absolute professional, delivered what he promised and was absolutely enthusiastic about the sport. Never a big fan of safety measures, he thought, “Racing has become too safe. A bit of danger is like adding salt to your food – if you didn`t have salt, it wasn`t quite so tasty”. He was a hero – everything a racing driver should be!
He was surely the greatest ambassador for british motorracing!
