THE SHOW STARS RE­VEAL THEIR MO­TOR­ING HE­ROES:

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

MIKE BREWER

‘My mo­tor­ing hero is Sir Stir­ling Moss. He once told me a fan­tas­tic story about do­ing the Mille Miglia where his co-driver was be­ing sick in his hel­met, yet Stir­ling was like a giddy teenager. He’s still as pas­sion­ate about cars and driv­ing now as he was when he was com­pet­ing. He’s an in­spi­ra­tion. Not just for mo­tor­ing, but on how to em­brace life.’

EDD CHINA

‘I’d strug­gle cutting it down to one. All of my mo­tor­ing he­roes are the great de­sign­ers – Har­ley Earl at Gen­eral Mo­tors, Buck­min­ster Fuller with the Du­max­ion Car, Gor­don Mur­ray with the bound­ary push­ing McLaren F1 and T25, and Frank Stephen­son with the new Mini, Fiat 500, Fer­rari and cur­rent McLaren de­signer.’

ANT ANSTEAD

‘Ted Cutting is one of the great un­sung he­roes. He built As­ton’s only Le Mans win­ner ba­si­cally in a shed from loads of left over parts! When he left As­ton he did the Capri, or a ma­jor part of it. Very clever bloke and too of­ten over­looked.’
