Moss the Boss challenge and pioneering project drew crowds at the Classic Motor Show
A nerve-wracking test of motor racing mettle and an innovative pilot project made the Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance stand a hive of activity at this year's Classic Motor Show with Discovery.
Show goers queued to pit their wits against the clock in the Moss the Boss driving challenge - a nail-biting attempt to beat the fastest lap time that Sir Stirling Moss recorded during the historic 1961 Monaco Grand Prix - just 1 minute and 39 seconds.

Beating-off stiff competition behind the wheel of the Lotus Climax simulator to top each day's leaderboard were Ben Adamson, Tom O'Brien and David Hager, who were each awarded a Magnum of Champagne or a £50 Amazon voucher.

Sharing the limelight on the stand was be a beautiful Ford Model A Phaeton, the star of the Ford Model A Loan Car Project - a pioneering initiative to encourage the next generation of enthusiasts into the classic vehicle movement.


Visitors gathered to admire the gleaming Phaeton and to speak to passionate project organisers Peter Garrett and Bob Wilkinson as well as 26 year-old Richard Gordon-Colebrooke, who has become the car's owner for 12 months, and is fully embracing life within the classic vehicle movement.

In fact, the initiative generated so much interest at the show that organisers have reported at least three follow-up loan car projects are now on the cards for early next year.
Company director, Peter James, said: "It was an extremely successful show for us, with great amounts of interest generated by both the Moss the Boss challenge and the showcase of the loan car project, and we are delighted to hear that this valuable project has since gathered momentum."
