UPDATE: Comments and the contest are now closed because we have a winner! Yes, out of all the entries Frank Stabler was selected through a random drawing to receive the prize. Congratulations Frank!
Last year, at Sir Stirling Moss‘s suggestion, Porter Press reprinted their most popular Scrapbook documenting his amazing 1955 year which of course included the Mille Miglia win and first GP victory. And we are having a contest to give one away.
The 1955 Stirling Moss Scrapbook is now back in stock to commemorate sixty years of this crucial year for the racing driver. The first of a series of Stirling Moss scrapbooks which now includes as separate volumes 1926-54, 1956-60, and 1961, the 1955 Scrapbook evokes memories of the heyday of classic motorsport.
We covered this book when it came out back in July, and were sent one for review. The Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955 is packed with intriguing detail, superb illustrations and a plethora of period cuttings from around the world. Throughout his career, he created his personal scrapbooks, several volumes per year, and he kept a diary and photo albums too. This book dips into his personal records and is spiced throughout with treasures to delight and fascinate. These are supplemented by period comments and many of his anecdotes. Moss has a fund of stories and is refreshingly non-PC!
The contest is quite simple – we have one copy of this great book to giveaway. It is brand new, huge, and gorgeous. As much as we would love to keep it, we are going to pass it on to one of you.

We will close the comments and the discussion on the stroke of midnight (eastern standard time) on the last day of February. So at 24:00:00 on February 29, 2016, we will close the comments. Everyone who has entered a comment below will be put into a random drawing. When the name (email) is selected it will be checked against our newsletter subscribers list. If there is a match, bingo!, we have our winner. If no match, we will select another random person from the comments and start over again. When we have drawn out someone who has both left a comment and subscribed, we will send them an email of congratulations and request a delivery address. We will happily post the book to the winner anywhere in the world no matter where they may be. The winner will also be announced in the 4 March edition of the Online Motoring News.
