PAT MOSS & ERIK CARLSSON - EUROPEAN RALLY CHAMPIONS
Upon instruction from Mr & Mrs Erik Carlsson, we are pleased to offer for sale by auction a collection of trophies & mementos from the heyday of rallying from 1950s- 1970s, representing major victories in International Rally & Motor Sports events in Europe and on all Continents.
On offer is a cross-section representing their achievements during an unprecedented period of significant interest in World Rallying. The highlight is the magnificent "Redex Trophy" (hallmarked silver, standing over two feet high), from the Monte Carlo Rally, awarded in perpetuity to Erik Carlsson on attaining his 3rd Outright win in this marathon event in 1963; He also won the Prince Ranier Cup for his win in 1962. Driving almost uniquely for Saab, which he put squarely at the forefront of the Sport, he achieved wins in almost every important event in the International Calendar over an extensive period.
Not to be outdone, Pat Moss, who started a highly successful sporting career with horses as a child & teenager, won numerous trophies in equestrian & show-jumping events, before following in her brother Stirling's footsteps, turning her attention to four-wheeled thoroughbreds in motor sport. Her rallying achievements are recognised here with winning trophies from the Tulip Rally with Elsie Wisdom and Pauline Mayman in 1960 & 1962 - also including a small selection of fine silver cups for equestrianism, and a group of trophies won by her mother Mrs Aileen Moss, who was a keen competitor in pre-war rally events. The victories won by this amazing husband & wife duo are probably unsurpassed in any sporting spheres.
