Stir­ling to re­unite with two GP cars

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Events Previews -

BICES­TER, OX­FORD­SHIRE, 2-3 JULY

Rac­ing leg­end Sir Stir­ling Moss will be re­united this week­end with the Lo­tus 18 in which he won the Monaco Grand Prix 55 years ago.

Fly­wheel Fes­ti­val will also bring him to­gether with the 1952 Jaguar C-type in which he won that year’s Reims Grand Prix. Both cars will be in demon­stra­tion runs at Bices­ter Her­itage, driven by their cur­rent own­ers.

The rac­ers with links to Sir Stir­ling will join more than 100 clas­sics in dis­plays at the clas­sic-friendly busi­ness park, where the re­stor­ers and deal­ers will also be throw­ing open their doors to vis­i­tors. There’s also a park­ing area for pre-1966 ve­hi­cles to en­cour­age show­go­ers to be­come part of the event.

One-day tick­ets bought on the day cost £28 and a week­end ticket is £50, although there are ad­vance deals on the fes­ti­val’s web­site. Sir Stir­ling will be sign­ing au­to­graphs dur­ing the ac­tion-packed week­end.
