Carroll Shelby with Shelby GT350 Mustang
Following a recent accident at his home in Mayfair, England, Sir Stirling Moss was with left with two broken ankles, four broken bones to his foot, skin abrasions and four chipped vertebrae – according to his web site. Happily, we understand he’s now comfortable and recovering in a London hospital after surgery to mend his ankles.
Unfortunately, Moss was to be honored as the Grand Marshal at this year’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, which will be held this weekend, March 13-15 in Amelia Island, Florida. Carroll Shelby, a long-time friend of Moss, will be stepping in as Grand Marshal for the renowned British racing driver.
“I’m very happy to hear Moss is recuperating after that terrible accident,” stated Carroll. “We certainly wish him a very speedy recovery and will miss him at this year’s Amelia Island Concour.”
In addition to featuring Carroll Shelby as Grand Marshal, the Amelia Island will also host the Automotive Fine Arts Society exhibit, which is sponsored by Mazda North America. The show will feature the latest works of many of the most revered automotive artists.
So, if you’re near Amelia Island this weekend, be sure to drop by the Concours to see Carroll as well as see some of the world’s best automotive fine art!
