Automobilia

Bonhams are having a sale of Automobilia as part of the Goodwood Revival. A few items I like:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lot No: 85

The British Empire Trophy Race, Donington 1936,
Est £200 - £300
Fantastic graphic design, to me it looks more modern than the 30s (really looks 50s I think), which probably emphasised the modernity of the event.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These two lots I thought were interesting to compare - two sets of race overalls: one from the 60s and one from the 00s, interesting to note (amongst other things) the spread of sponsors logos on the recent pair...

Lot No: 153

A pair of Andre Lotterer's Jaguar Formula 1 Team racing overalls,
in green and white, with 'Jaguar Racing', 'HSBC', 'Becks', 'Du Pon', 'EDS', 'Michelin', 'AT&T', 'hp', and 'S.Oliver' logos, with handwritten driver identification to inside of belt, good condition.

Estimate: £200 - 300
Lot No: 168
A pair of Jim Clark's Dunlop racing overalls,
mid 1960s, two piece type, in blue, zip fastening with button to top, with 'Dunlop, 'Esso', 'Lotus' and 'GPDA' logos attached, good condition, some light race wear, offered together with a letter outlining the provenance of the overalls and a photograph of the former owner wearing them in 1965.
Estimate: £2,000 - 4,000
