Not sure on the spelling but what about Johnny Chicotto??

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

True story, my eldest brother would have been called Stirling had my old man got his way

Moss?

Try Sir John Surtees the only 500 and F1 Champion as far as I know.

When did Moss win a 500 world title?

Hunt the Shunt

.... and that may well be actually true BP !!!

Whereas mine was a quote from a Not the Nine O' Clock news where Griff Rhys Jones played this character called the Amazing Bullshitting Man.

One of his assertions at a dinner party was that Stirling Moss was blind when he won his first Grand Prix.

All very silly stuff.
