Aston Martin finally achieved a coveted outright win at Le Mans in 1959, doing it with a 1-2 finish. The marque had first entered the Le Mans race in 1928, running every race since 1931 and had finished second three times and third twice before this victory. The Moss / Fairman car retired early in the evening, so Stirling spent the rest of the 24 hours interviewing the team members and watching on, he would later turn this into a book which is an intimate study of the Aston Martin works team.
