This very generous donation of his own personal copy of the incredible F1 OPUS Champion’s Limited Edition for auction at the Festival will go a long way help us achieve our overall target of £60,000.”

     “We are very excited about the auction and all the other activities we have going on during the Festival of Speed where we are the event’s official beneficiary for 2015.
