The display lined-up at Race Retro promises to be mouth-watering indeed with a unique collection of Mike Hawthorn’s cars and personal racing memorabilia. Surely the most exciting for enthusiasts will be the D-Type Jaguar that renowned collector, Nigel Webb, re-built using the chassis from the 1955 Le Mans winning car. It even features the original registration number. Also on show will be the Lotus Eleven that Hawthorn raced in period, and the cars will be accompanied by a wonderful array of memorabilia including a selection of the driver’s gold medals, a steering wheel from one of his Ferrari Formula 1 cars, and plenty more.
This year’s Motor Sport Hall of Fame Live will include a unique tribute to British racing driver Mike Hawthorn when it returns to Race Retro. The Hawthorn showcase features both cars and artefacts from his career that have been curated for a bespoke display.
