Racing cars to be sold at auction

Formula One team Brawn sell racing cars

Racing cars owned by Formula One team Brawn GP are to be sold at auction. The cars have been driven by top drivers including World Champion Jacques Villeneuve, Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello.

The cars are being sold in rolling chassis form without the engines. Prices are expected to fetch between £7000 and £22,000.

Bonham’s will be selling the cars; the auction will take place at Silverstone on July 25th. James Knight, international managing director of the Bonham’s motoring department said “All Formula One teams accumulate a fairly large collection of race chassis over the years and the timing of the Brawn GP sale could not be better. "The team has been the undoubted stars of the 2009 Formula One season and this sale enables collectors and their legion of fans to acquire some fabulous historic lots. In addition to the cars up to 100 lots of memorabilia will be sold including race overalls component spares and merchandise.
