Jordan sells off Formula One collection

Fri, 07 Mar 2014

FORMULA ONE commentator and former team boss Eddie Jordan is selling off his collection of racing cars and memorabilia to raise money for charity.

The sale includes the very first Jordan F1 car that driven by Michael Schumacher. It comes complete with the German driver’s original racing helmet that Schumacher signed and gave to Eddie Jordan as a souvenir.

Also part of the sale is the first Jordan car to win a Grand Prix, which was driven by Damon Hill to victory in the 1998 Belgium GP. Included with this car is the trophy won by the team at that race for finishing in first place, plus Damon Hill’s race suit and helmet are part of the deal.

Every item for sale comes with a certificate signed by Eddie Jordan to prove it is genuine and all of the items for sale will be presented by Jordan himself at a special ceremony at Silverstone circuit.

Eddie Jordan said: ‘I kept these two F1 cars because of their history, the good memories and what they meant to the team. However, 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. It will also help young people get back on the straight and narrow, which is why I’ve chosen the Amber Foundation for this and CLIC Sargent for its work with cancer patients.’
