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.
