The competition hots up
Winning selection in first of Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro sales
The first of a three-day Race Retro sales bonanza sees Silverstone Auctions putting a selection of competition cars under the hammer, with non-competition cars offered on the following two days.
The opening day’s sale offers would-be competitors an opportunity to get started more quickly than if they have to build a car to relevant regulations. Costs can often be prohibitive, and those thinking about dipping a toe in the water might not want to commit a hefty sum for something they might not like.
Costs can vary dramatically, with some historic motorsport cars being relatively cheap, while for those wanting a serious set of wheels and to run it in serious events will require an equally healthy bank balance. As Silverstone’s line-up shows, there are many forms of historic motorsport, and there are less expensive ways of getting involved. And for many it’s not the winning, but the taking part, that’s the most important thing. 01926 691141. www. silverstoneauctions.com
