Despite his predilection for British cars, Sir Stirling Moss has a name and career that can be attached to a few special race cars from other parts of the world. Among the most notable are his ties with Germany's Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. Moss was recently seen at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed and he arrived with one of his prized Porsches ready to run up the hill.
This particular Porsche is the 718 RS 61, which Moss ran in the Targa Florio. He may have won in the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR, but Moss loved driving the Porsche. He states that it's "so driver-friendly" that he eventually Moss purchased the car for his own private collection.
Before running up the hill, Sir Stirling Moss stops to chat for an interview, which you can watch after the jump. This is a simple clip, yet it's done perfectly and the ending shows Moss waving to fans before his Porsche crosses the finish line.
