As the UK swelters in record breaking temperature, there will be little reprieve from the heat at Paul Ricard this weekend. Track limits were a big issue in Austria and are likely to be so again on the super smooth tarmac with seemingly endless blue striped run offs. A great track to drive, letโ€™s hope it creates another good race.

In 1989 and 1990, Leyton House made the headlines for different reasons at Le Castellet. Mauricio Gugelminโ€™s Car somersaulted after the start in โ€˜89, whilst his team mate, Ivan Capelli almost won the race in โ€˜90 but had to settle for second to Prostโ€™s Ferrari. We have just acquired a consignment of original new old stock Leyton House team gear from that period that has been in storage for 30 years and is extremely rare – the Miami blue Colours were always popular! The items include: Rain Jacket and Trouser SetTeam Race Shirt and Purple Mechanics Suit.

French teams and drivers are always popular  and we have a Pirelli cap hand signed by Pierre Gasly and his team mate Yuki Tsunoda available, as well as a Romain Grosjean promotional race suit from his Lotus Renault days.

Alain Prost remains the most successful French driver and a framed original black and white professional photograph from 1993 hand signed by โ€˜Le Professorโ€™ is a wonderful item to have. 

Renault may have re-named themselves Alpine but Fernando Alonso remains at th core of the team. We have his race suit used to launch the R28 in Paris in 2008 as well as a pair of his race used boots in stock.

Thank you,

Tim
