Top female rally driver dies

The younger sister of top racing driver Stirling Moss, who was a rally champion in her own right, has died.

Pat Moss-Carlsson, aged 73, passed away at home surrounded by her family on Tuesday, October 14, following a battle with cancer.

The former Tring resident was one of Britain's leading horsewomen and rally drivers.

During her younger years she could often be spotted travelling around the town on horse-back or in her racing Morris Minor, named Granny, which she also used to go shopping in.

Up until around four years ago Mrs Moss-Carlsson would drive the horse-box for her show jumping daughter Susie Rawding.

Mrs Rawding said: "She even got a speeding ticket in the lorry about seven or eight years ago which we always had a laugh about."

In recent years Mrs Moss-Carlsson, lived with husband and fellow rally driver Erik, in Eaton Bray, Beds, close to their daughter.

Her funeral was held on Friday, October 24.

Instead of flowers it was requested that donations be made to the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home, a Tring-based charity which helps to care for terminally ill patients in their own homes and supported the family.
