Stirling Moss leads record-breaking Silverstone parade

Published 30 July 2014

Stirling Moss led a record number of GP cars on a lap of Silverstone last Sunday to celebrate the circuit’s 50th Grand Prix.

Racing legend Moss led 84 cars – the largest collection of Grand Prix cars ever assembled – around the famous Northamptonshire circuit at the Silverstone Classic on Sunday, 27 July.

Moss led the parade in a Maserati 250F and was joined at the front by David Brabham, son of three-time World Champion Jack, who passed away earlier this year. David drove a Brabham BT24.

An incredible array of GP cars followed the two racing legends, including several pre-Second World War machines from the Brooklands era, right up to Lotuses and Williams from the more modern DFV era.

The parade also featured the Talbot-Lago T26C that was entered into the first Silverstone Grand Prix for Lord Selsdon and the Cooper of inaugural BTCC champion Jack Sears, who was back behind the wheel in 2014 more than 50 years after he first raced the car.

Sir Stirling Moss said, ‘The Silverstone Classic is an absolutely terrific event – what's so wonderful is that people can actually see all these glorious cars and talk to the mechanics and drivers.’
