Legends of the track discuss their dream races

To mark the upcoming Silverstone Classic, a number of legends of the track have been discussing the historic races they wish they could have taken part in.

Sir Stirling Moss said he thought the early 1970s was a golden era in motor sport.

He stated: "I watched a film showing the 1972 Maserati and Ferrari sports cars battle from Sebring to Le Mans to Watkins Glen.

"Those cars were so stylish and sexy to look at."

Meanwhile, Martin Brundle said he had driven many amazing vehicles.

However, he added getting behind the wheel of a 1950s D-Type at Le Mans would have made him really happy.

Mark Blundell, on the other hand, remarked he would have liked to have raced against Formula One stars such as James Hunt and Mario Andretti during the 1970s.

People with a similar passion for antique autos - who have built up something of a collection - may find they can secure a great deal on classic car insurance online.
