Silverstone Auctions close their catalogue with a number of superb competition cars including special offer from Rowan Atkinson

The Race Retro Live Online Auction catalogue is filled with a number of unrepeatable competition cars including this 1964 Ford Falcon FIA Race Car offered directly from Rowan Atkinson CBE.

The distinctive FIA-spec is finished in the classic period colour of Turquoise and is eligible for the Masters, HSCC, HRDC and all pre-’65 FIA Series in Europe. Silverstone Auctions are extremely proud to be offering this in their Race Retro sale on his behalf. This unique and special example benefits from being road registered, which means the possibility of Tours and Historic rally events also exists which is splendidly timed with the start of the season just around the corner!

Another brilliant competition car going under the hammer in their first sale of 2021 is this 1989 FIA Lister-Chevrolet ‘Knobbly’ Sanction II ‘Centenary’ Sports Racer. This example is one of just four ‘Centenary’ Listers built by Brian Lister in 1989 with a clear history from new, and for considerably less than a period car or a newly built example. Silverstone Auctions are offering a very rare chance to own a fantastically prepared Lister.

Gary Dunne Sales Controller for Silverstone Auctions added “We are absolutely delighted to be offering Rowan Atkinson CBE 1964 Ford Falcon. It is a privilege and real honour to include the Race Car alongside our superb examples. Just two weeks to go! Don’t forget to register your bid!”

Silverstone Auctions are offering this amazing opportunity including everything you need to run a team of Ascari a410s.

Superbly presented, immaculately engineered, and now race ready is this 1988 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth Group A Touring Car.
