Two famous Formula One cars are being sold off for charity by former Grand Prix team owner, Eddie Jordan.
According to crash.net, one of the cars was driven by racing legend Michael Schumacher in his F1 début at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1991. It has a 7-up livery and comes with Mr Schumacher's helmet, which has been signed by the star. It was originally given to Mr Jordan as a token of appreciation for giving him his first F1 race.
The second vehicle up for grabs is the first Jordan car to win a race. Damon Hill famously secured the victory at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1998, reports theleader.info. The car comes with Hill's suit, helmet and trophy as part of the sale.
Cars International will be responsible for the sale of the cars, as they will be sold privately instead of going to auction. The firm will provide the expertise of its engineering team to the buyers and are willing to maintain the cars for them if they so wish.
Mr Jordan explains that two charities will benefit from the sale of the cars, CLIC Sargent and the Amber Foundation.
"These two F1 cars were kept because of their history, the good memories and what they meant to the team," he says. "But it's time to let them go and the money will be used to good effect helping young people and their families cope with cancer and getting young adults back on the straight and narrow."
