I participated in the last auction...so did Scarbs...and we ended up leaving it because the prices where over the moon.....they asked me for 80 euros just for shipping 2 mechanics shirts to Portugal! Besides the 120 euros I was going to pay for them!

2 Gear ratios reached 80 euros.....2 weeks later I bought 2 gear ratios from Jordan on ebay for 30 euros!!!

The prices are really high.....if you're willing to spend 100 to 200 euros....you'll come home (or will receive at home)....something very close to nothing!!! 90% of the lots reached over 60 euros!

Some steering wheels were more expensive then a whole car!

:shock: What would happen if that was sale of some successful F1 team?

Having checked the item list it seams to me that Stoddy will earn more on this auction than he earned by selling the team... :roll:

Still, the are many desirable things there :( :cry:

Ahh memorabilia. Anyone got any good bits? Welcome to my favourite room in the house!!!

This is a signed photo of Nigel Mansell exiting the tunnel at Monaco in 1992. His battle with Senna in the closing laps is my first Grand Prix memory so it means alot this one.

My prized possesion. The rear of a Ferrari sidepod from Schuey's Ferrari F310B.This is the actual peice that rode with Schuey to race wins in San Marino,Monaco, France and Hungary. It is signed by Ross Brawn, Jody Sheckter and Schuey himself. Cost me a cool £3,000. Next to it is the signed balaclava from F3 Euroseries front runner and the next English F1 hopeful James Rossiter. (won from Autosport)

I've always wondered how difficult it would be to fit an affordable road car engine such as an old Rover V8 to the rolling chassis of a Formula car. I don't see why it isn't do-able... oh the fun i'd have if I was an eccentric millionare!!! :D

Hummm...in any case the gear ratios weren't signed and they costed a lot! Only around 5 to 10% of the items are signed!

My avatar has nothing to do with F1 or Renault, it's just hazard. I just love the Smurfs...it's my inner child :P

Now I get the meaning of your avatar :wink:

BTW, wouldn’t it be cheaper if several people interested in memorabilia would buy for example whole gearbox together and than share gears among them selves? :wink:
