Maserati 250F and Stirling Moss

It’s always a highlight going to the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix to watch the Historic Demonstration.  Watching some of the great ex-Formula One cars, sportscars and Le Mans racers make their way around the Melbourne Grand Prix circuit is always memorable for me.  In my opinion, the sights and sounds of these cars far exceed what we have currently competing in Formula One.  The 2006 edition was certainly a memorable one as it marked the 50th Anniversary of Sir Stirling Moss driving a Maserati 250F to victory in the 1956 Australian Grand Prix held at Albert Park.  The actual 250F driven by Moss to victory was at this event and driven by the car’s owner, Englishman Peter Giddings.  Moss was also at the event and completed demonstration runs in a similar looking version.
