Proceeds of the sale will be donated to the CLIC Sargent and the Amber Foundation

The BBC F1 show host and former Jordan Grand Prix Team owner Eddie Jordan OBE has requested that the collection of historically important cars and memorabilia should be sold with all the proceeds going to CLIC Sargent and the Amber Foundation.

Eddie Jordan commented, “These two F1 cars were kept because of their history, the good memories and what they meant to the team. But it’s time to let them go and the money will be used to good effect helping young people and their families cope with cancer (CLIC Sargent) and getting young adults back on the straight and narrow (Amber Foundation).”

The collection includes the first Jordan Grand Prix car ever built, chassis number 01. Designed by Gary Anderson, 191 is a highly significant car as it was driven by Michael Schumacher. It comes complete with Michael’s original helmet, signed and given to Eddie Jordan personally by the now seven times World Champion to express his gratitude for his first Grand Prix racing opportunity!

The second car in the collection is the first Grand Prix winning Jordan chassis 198. This car was driven to victory by Damon Hill ahead of team mate Ralf Schumacher in the 1998 Belgium Grand Prix and comes complete with the Constructor’s World Championship trophy won on that historic day, as well as Damon’s race suit and his helmet.

There are also a further collection of twelve significant Driver and Constructors World Championship trophies, eight Jordan team drivers’ helmets and a selection of other memorabilia in the collection. Each individual item is complete with a certificate of authenticity, signed personally by Eddie Jordan himself.

Everything will formally be presented to the new owner by Eddie Jordan at Silverstone where the Jordan Grand Prix story began and this sale represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a unique part of F1 history.

The collection is not going to auction but being sold privately through Cars International who have the benefit of a full F1 engineering team with the expertise to provide service and maintenance to these vehicles should the new owner wish to use them for demonstrations or racing.

Interested parties should contact: David Williamson on 077 78 097 377: email: david.williamson@carsinternational.com
or Cars International on: +44 (0) 1488 71029.
