Not related to Britain’s greatest star of the time, Bill Moss finished second in a minor Formula 2 race at Silverstone in 1957. He stalled at the start of the 25-mile race but recovered and was only beaten by Tony Marsh.
He drove a United Racing Stable F2 Cooper T51-Climax during 1959 and was 12th in Silverstone’s International Trophy. He was also entered for the British Grand Prix at Aintree but did not qualify.
Moss then raced Luton garage owner Sid Day’s ERA R6B ("Remus") in some 1960 historic events. He won three times and was perhaps more at ease in that environment than in a contemporary paddock.
However, he won the 1961 John Davy British Formula Junior Championship driving Chequered Flag Racing’s Gemini Mk3A and Lotus 18. His Cooper T72 was last in the 1964 Vanwall Trophy at Snetterton and Moss was little seen in the sport thereafter.
He died in a nursing home near Dorchester in 2010 after suffering a long illness.
