Innes Ireland – Stirling Moss – Graham Hill
Picture above: Innes Ireland, Stirling Moss, Graham Hill in a relax mood at Watkins Glen 1961.
Innes Ireland was a British military officer, engineer, and excellent motor racing driver. He was a larger than life character who according to a rival team boss, “lived without sense, without an analyst and provoked astonishment and affection from everyone.”
He won the 1961 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen driving a Lotus-Climax. It was Colin Chapman’s Lotus team first ever Grand Prix victory, and it will remain the only victory for the nice Englishman.
