Went with Graham to the motor racing at Aintree. Four shillings to get in! It was the European Grand Prix, one of the most exciting races I have ever seen. Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks were both driving Vanwalls and Moss was well in the lead, then his engine started misfiring, so he pulled into the pits and they called in Tony Brooks' car, which was lying third at the time. By the time they had changed cars Moss rejoined in 9th place but drove like a demon and actually won the race! Moss & Brooks were awarded the title jointly. Afterwards I managed to get Tony Brooks autograph but unfortunately I couldn’t get anywhere near Stirling Moss.
