The exquisite (and enormous) book is made up of 850 pages: home to over 1,000 large photographs, various unseen polaroid portraits, three giant two-metre long gatefolds and 200,000 words by the finest writers in F1.
Not only that, as this is the champions edition, it has been signed by 23 world champions including Phil Hill, John Surtees and Sir Jack Braham, as well as the current stars of the sport.
The leather-bound book documents the 60-year history of F1 racing and there are only 99 copies in the world. The current bid stands at GBP6,500, but with an RRP of GBP20,000 this should increase. As an incredible collector’s item, it will only appreciate in value as the years go on. Words do not really do justice to the sheer scale of the enterprise: a spectacular museum piece in itself and a remarkable monument to Formula 1.
Proceeds from the auction will support UK Youth, a charity that has a vision to provide every young person with a bright future. They do this by working hand-in-hand with young people and dedicated organisations to develop a variety of skills.
