plus – 30/98 Vauxhall, BMW M1 Procar and Bernie’s collection

Auction activity over the summer months has been lively and there’s much more to come as we move into autumn.

The ex-John Miles/Graham Hill Lotus 72, which was displayed on the Motor Sport stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, sold well at H&H’s Kempton Park sale for £286,000. The European collector who bought the car intends to return it to the tracks.

Coming up at the beginning of September is a chance to acquire a Vauxhall 30/98 last owned by tha VSCC stalwart, the late Arthur Jeddere-Fisher. The 1921 car comes up at Bonhams’ auction during the Beaulieu Autojumble on September 8, with an estimate of £60,000 to £90,000.

A well raced Kremer-built Porsche 935 K3 is one of the star lots at Geneva’s Palexpo on October 6 in the sale run by the Sports Car Auction Company in association with RM Auctions. It competed twice at Le Mans, retiring on both occasions, and was also raced extensively in Germany by ‘John Winter’. Other drivers to race the car included Rolf Stommelen, Ted Field and the Whittington brothers, Don and Bill, who had won Le Mans with Klaus Ludwig in 1979 in another K3. Its finest hour was probably at Monza in 1982, when Stommelen and Field finished second in the World Endurance Championship 1000Km. Estimate is £390,000 to £500,000.

At the same auction you could pick up the BMW M1 Procar which raced in those memorable BASF colours, which it still wears. Built for BMW Switzerland, it contested the 1980 Procar Championship, run by Sauber, and even appeared at Le Mans in 1983, when its drivers included Prinz Leopold ‘Poldi’ von Bayern. It has since been used in historic racing and competed at this year’s Jim Clark Revival meeting at Hockenheim.

A fascinating collection of memorabilia will be auctioned by H&H on October 9, at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. The Bert Hadley archive includes Hadley’s racing gear, period photographs, trophies – including one from Brooklands in 1937 – programmes, magazines and paperwork relating to Jowett Le Mans drives – as well as his OHC Austin 7 exploits pre-war, Hadley competed at La Sarthe in Jupiters in 1951 and ’52. He was also a part of the Jaguar XK120 record-breaking team at Montlhéry in 1952, and his copy of the limited run of albums of photographs of the bid presented by Jaguar to its drivers is part of the sale. There is also an original artwork by Frederick Nevin, featuring Hadley and others in action at Shelsley Walsh.

The star turn at the Battersea Park sale, to be run by RM Auctions in association with Sotheby’s on October 29-30, is the Bernie Ecclestone Collection. Interesting machinery in the sale – not all from the Ecclestone collection – includes a Ferrari 250 GT Europa, and a Bizzarrini. Bernie’s collection is largely of road cars, including pre-war Mercedes-Benzs, Lancias and Bentleys, and many American classics.
