Yvan Muller 2005 BTCC Donington Race Winning Trophy
Once in a while MM is able to offer a truly special collectible piece and this is an excellent example. This stunning trophy was won by British Touring Car driver and four times World Touring Car Champion, Yvan Muller. The French driver is one of the most successful Touring Car drivers of all time, winning the prestigious BTCC as well as being four times WTCC Champion. He was also BTCC runner up twice and WTCC runner up no less than six times!
This impressive trophy was presented to Muller for winning at Donington Park in April 2005, running the VX Racing Astra. He went on to be runner up in the series in that year, his last in BTCC season.
This silver plated trophy has two fluted handles on either side. It sits on a black pedestal that has an engraved black plaque with the series sponsor ‘Dunlop’, the series round and the date of the event. It stands approximately 65cm in height. Whilst it has some minor patina and marks from storage, these do not detract from this fantastic piece.
Original race winning trophies are rarely made available, let alone from a true legend of Touring Car Racing. It comes with a full MM Certificate Of Authenticity.
