After an eventful race in Catalunya, the teams come to Monaco for a three day format for the first time in memory, the Thursday practice day having been changed to Friday as a result of the ever increasing calendar pressures.

Love it as a spectacle or loathe it as “processional”, Monaco remains the jewel in F1’s crown and is the most prestigious race to win. The principality has also been the venue for some of the most significant car events in history too. 

Ayrton Senna won Monaco on a record six occasions. “Casino Champion” by Ben Payne is an exclusive original painting of Ayrton at the hairpin in 1993 heading for the 6th and last of those wins, beautifully framed for presentation. Casino Champion is a wonderful large format original painting that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. 

Genuine Ayrton Senna signed pieces are getting harder to find, but none come better than a hand signed personal Christmas card from Ayrton to one of the McLaren team, complete with original postmarked envelope. With equal 100% provenance, from Ayrton’s epic duel with Nigel Mansell in 1992, we offer one of the limited edition Fight to the Finish prints by Alan Fearnley, a highly sought-after edition hand signed by Ayrton and certified by the publisher. It was the last print edition that was endorsed by Ayrton.

Also in 1992, McLaren Cars chose the Sporting Club Monaco to launch what would become the ultimate drivers road car and one of the most valuable modern classics : the McLaren F1. We can offer the initial softback invitation brochure and the hardback brochure that was provided to customers after placing a deposit, both in their original boxes and hand signed in silver sharpie to the covers by Gordon Murray at his home in April 2022, exclusively for MM

From the car itself , we have an original carbon centrepiece from the steering wheel embedded with the F1V12 logo badge, also signed by Gordon. Whilst the cars are now worth in excess of $20m this unrepeatable piece is for sale at a a fraction of that.

At a more modest price, we have a complete Ferrari press pack and dossier of full of information from the 2000 race (won by DC) that comes direct from the archive of retired Times F1 correspondent, Kevin Eason. It consists of the press information, event programme, full set of press releases and some of Kevin’s handwritten notes as well his unused parking pass!

Olivier Panis unexpectedly won the 1996 race in the wet, and we are delighted to offer an original Bell marketing helmet from his later years with Toyota. This wonderful helmet will grace any serious collection.

Thanks,

Tim
