Stewart Lines Up Ultimate GP Auction

Formula One fans are being offered the chance to bid for the Ultimate British Grand Prix VIP package - and help out a worthy cause at the same time

Stewart Lines Up Ultimate GP Auction

Sir Jackie Stewart has lined up an exceptional auction in aid of the Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable Trust. The one-off opportunity will include two 3-day F1 Paddock passes, donated by Bernie Ecclestone, along with a pair of three-day BRDC Clubhouse access and a pair of three-day BRDC Grandstand seats.

On top of that, the package will include a room for three nights in the Hilton Milton Keynes, lunch at the BRDC Clubhouse, visits to the Williams and Red Bull Racing motorhomes, photo opportunities with David Coulthard and Mark Webber, BRDC centre circuit car parking, and a tour of the Williams pit garage from JYS himself.

"I hope that the VIP package will raise £10,000 or more for the charity," said Stewart, who is founder and chairman of the GPMCT. "Thanks to the generosity of the contributors, and especially Mr Ecclestone, we are able to offer the kind of access that is normally only available to a handful of people in the world."

The eBay auction runs until June 19th, and further information can be found at the official auction website.

The GPMCT helps former and current F1 mechanics and their families, putting F1 mechanics around the world in touch with each other and raising funds to help in times of need.

As well as Ecclestone, the GPMCT's auction is being supported by BMW WilliamsF1 team, the British Racing Drivers' Club, David Coulthard, Mark Webber, Global Beach Group, the Motor Sports Association, Red Bull Racing and Autosport.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
