Sir Stirling Moss: Stirling Moss is often described as the best driver never to win the Formula 1 World Championship. He was runner-up four times, winning 16 Grand Prix races, before a serious crash in 1962 ended his career. During the 1950s he won many Sports Car trophies and events, as well as pursuing his Formula 1 career. Following his retirement from top flight motor racing Stirling Moss continued to race “for fun” in events for touring cars and historic sports cars. He was knighted in 2000.
Cliff Morgan OBE CVO: “Morgan the Magnificent” was the title given to Cliff Morgan by South African newspapers when he toured the country with the British Lions team in 1955. His success in that tour earned him the captaincy of Wales the following season. Cliff was born into a mining family in the Rhondda in 1930 and joined Cardiff Rugby Club straight from school, playing at fly-half. The first of his 29 caps for Wales was won in 1951. When his playing career ended in 1958 he became a successful broadcaster and manager with the BBC. He died in 2013.
