Race Retro Au­to­mo­bilia, Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions, Stoneleigh Park, 25-26 Fe­bru­ary

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

A rich vein of au­to­mo­bilia was of­fered in the Satur­day and Sun­day auc­tions at Race Retro with some top prices paid for good con­di­tion and scarce items. One of our favourite enamel signs in the sale, an AA spe­cial event enamel road sign, man­u­fac­tured by Franco Signs, point­ing the way to Crys­tal Palace Mo­tor Cir­cuit, com­plete with rac­ing car image, sold for £1380. An­other great pe­riod enamel sign, the 1950 Mille Miglia route marker that ap­peared in our 8 Fe­bru­ary is­sue, beat its top es­ti­mate to re­alise £840, while a square, sin­gle-sided un­re­stored Shell ‘From the Pump’ enamel raised £720. Some un­sold items from the auc­tions are avail­able at buy-now prices on the web­site. www.sil­ver­stoneauc­tions.com
