Stirling Moss

Sir Stirling Moss Died Sunday at the age of 90.  I was lucky enough to meet him at the 2015 Amelia Island Concour where he was the guest of honor.  A remarkable career and life.   At the banquet they did a sit down interview and asked him questions about his time in racing and it was fascinating.  He raced for many years after he retired professionally and they asked why he finally gave it up altogether at the age of 81 I think.  I will never forget his response  "I was driving a car that could turn up to 8100 RPM but I didn't have the nerve to take it past 7800 so I thought I should just quit"
