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 inconvenient truth about F1’s ‘American driver’ dream

OPINION: The Formula 1 grid's wait for a new American driver looks set to continue into 2023 as the few remaining places up for grabs - most notably at McLaren - look set to go elsewhere. This is despite the Woking outfit giving tests to IndyCar aces recently, showing that the Stateside single-seater series still has some way to go to being seen as a viable feeder option for F1

How a bad car creates the ultimate engineering challenge

While creating a car that is woefully off the pace is a nightmare scenario for any team, it inadvertently generates the test any engineering department would relish: to turn it into a winner. As Mercedes takes on that challenge in Formula 1 this season, McLaren’s former head of vehicle engineering reveals how the team pulled of the feat in 2009 with Lewis Hamilton

 Nicholas Latifi is the last Formula 1 driver you’d expect to receive death threats, but such was the toxic legacy of his part in last year’s explosive season finale. And now, as ALEX KALINAUCKAS explains, he faces a battle to keep his place on the F1 grid…

The returning fan car revolution that could suit F1

Gordon Murray's Brabham BT46B 'fan car' was Formula 1 engineering at perhaps its most outlandish. Now fan technology has been successfully utilised on the McMurtry Speirling at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, could it be adopted by grand prix racing once again?

Hamilton's first experience of turning silver into gold

The seven-time Formula 1 world champion has been lumbered with a duff car before the 2022 Mercedes. Back in 2009, McLaren’s alchemists transformed the disastrous MP4-24 into a winning car with Lewis Hamilton at the wheel. And now it’s happening again at his current team, but can the rate of progress be matched this year?

Why few could blame Leclerc for following the example of Hamilton’s exit bombshell

OPINION: Ferrari's numerous strategy blunders, as well as some of his own mistakes, have cost Charles Leclerc dearly in the 2022 Formula 1 title battle in the first half of the season. Though he is locked into a deal with Ferrari, few could blame Leclerc if he ultimately wanted to look elsewhere - just as Lewis Hamilton did with McLaren 10 years prior
