12 April: Chairman, Peter Horsman writes "I’m sad to report that our President for many years, Sir Stirling Moss, passed away last night peacefully in the presence of his beloved wife and partner, Lady Susie.

Stirling, together with Susie, was a great supporter of our Association and made a point to attend our Annual Christmas lunches.  He was our inspiration, hero to many as well as gregarious company and had a wealth of stories which he was happy to recount to us of racing in the days and with the people that our cars represent.

We shall miss him and send our deepest condolences to Susie and the family"
