The organisers of Race Retro, the international historic motorsport show, are delighted to announce that Silverstone Auctions will be its new auction partner for the 2012 show, when it returns to Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, from 24-26 February.
Silverstone Auctions specialises in the sale of the finest classic cars, modern supercars, all types of competition cars, modern and historic motorcycles and automobilia. Race Retro will be the first time Silverstone Auctions has conducted an auction away from its Silverstone home. Nick Whale, Managing Director of Silverstone Auctions, said: “As a Midlands company, we are very proud of our roots and delighted to support a local event, especially when that event is the UK’s biggest historic motorsport show.”
The auction will be open for viewing all day on Friday and Saturday morning. The sale will then start on Saturday lunchtime with the automobilia before moving on to classic and historic motor racing and competition cars and motorcycles.
Silverstone Auctions is happy to accept entries into the auction and those interested should contact the team by telephoning 01926 691 141 or emailing
