Former F1 team owner Eddie Jordan has put two of his most famous cars on sale to raise money for charity.
The first Jordan F1 car, the 191, and their first-race-winning car are to go on sale. The proceeds will go to cancer charity CLIC Sargent and youth charity the Amber Foundation.
“These two F1 cars were kept because of their history, the good memories and what they meant to the team,” said Jordan. “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.”
Michael Schumacher started his first grand prix in a 191 and included in the sale are the signed helmet Schumacher gave to Jordan to thank him for the opportunity.
The cars are being sold privately through Cars International who can provide the buyers with an engineering team to service and maintenance the vehicles should the new owner wish to run them at events.
