Race ace’s cars could be yours!
A racing driver’s personal collection will be offered for sale at Essex Classic Car Auctions’ next sale.
Former modern and historic racer, Steve Tandy, will offer his collection of road and race cars in Maldon, Essex this Sunday (9 July). Tandy is thinning out his collection as he eases into retirement. Previously, he’s competed in major titles such as the British GT Championship, and won the 2015 historic Group C Racing Championship Class 1.
Steve is selling ten cars at the auction. Chief of the road cars is a one-owner-from-new Ford Sierra Cosworth with an estimate of £25,000-30,000. Two championshipwinning National Hot Rod cars are available, but pick of the track cars is a 1970 Ford Mustang with its original fittings. A 1965 Ford Cortina MkI GT rally car is also up for grabs.
Essex Classic Car Auctions’ Steve Leigh says: ‘Steve came to our last auction, and we just got chatting. He’s thinning out his collection as he’s retiring from motorsport. These cars are phenomenal and rarely do we get multi-championship-winning National Hot Rod cars, historic Ford Rally cars and big, growling American V8 race cars from one man.
‘There really is something from most forms of circuit or broken surface racing in the collection and we are proud to offer them.’
This one-owner-from-new Ford Sierra Cosworth is the most expensive of Tandy’s collection – with an estimate of £25,000-30,000.
