Announcing the Lister Knobbly Stirling Moss


The Lister Knobbly Stirling Moss

An exact continuation of the super-lightweight Knobbly that led Stirling Moss to victory at Silverstone in 1958

Sir Stirling Moss and Brian Lister

A winning Combination

Brian Lister Invited Stirling Moss to drive for Lister on three separate occasions. At Goodwood in 1954, Silverstone in 1958 and at Sebring in 1959. In 1958 Stirling was at the wheel of a super lightweight Lister Knobbly. With this unbeatable car and driver combination victory at Silverstone was assured. When asked later if he thought the 1958 Lister Knobbly was a competitive car, Stirling replied simply: “Well, who was going to beat you?”

Sir Stirling has been a significant and hugely loved figure of motorsport for over half a century and rightly deserves his place in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. Between 1947 and 1962 he entered 529 races and won 212, including 16 Formula One Grand Prix. He is one of the very few people for whom the word ‘legend’ is not overstated.

In the foreword to a new biography - “Stirling Moss – My Racing Life” - Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton writes: “Ever since I became fascinated by motor sport as a young boy I knew, as everybody else did, the name of Stirling Moss. He is considered by many to be the greatest British racing driver of all time. Of course I was never able to see him race during his professional career, but that didn’t stop him from being one of the motivations that drove me on to reach the top of the motor racing tree for my country.”
