Hello to Sir Stirling Moss

I’m meeting Sir Stirling Moss on Wednesday for the first time for an interview for my motorsport column Trackside over at Autotrader.co.uk. I don’t mind admitting I’m a little bit nervous about meeting one of Britain’s greatest racing drivers.

A1GP: Switzerland are third series champions

Tom Dillmann, Marcel F?â?ñssler, Rahel Frey, Natacha Gachnang and Alexandre Imperatori all drove for Switzerland at one time or another in the 2007-08 championship.
