Formula 1 gifts, artwork and memorabilia
Lotus 18 – 1:18 model | Signed by Stirling Moss
With its missing side panels and No20 on its nose, this is unmistakable as the Lotus 18 that Stirling Moss drove to victory in the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix, while pursued by a pack of faster Ferraris. Moss rated the drive his greatest victory, aided by increased ventilation thanks to the missing panels.
This 1:18 scale model commemorates the epic performance. Just 150 examples have been produced, of which only ten were signed by Moss himself, on the base.
F1 Anniversary posters
The Formula 1 World Championship raced into its 70th year this season and marked the occasion with a unique set of anniversary posters, each marking one legendary car per decade from Juan Manuel Fangio’s Maserati 250F of the 1950s to Lewis Hamilton’s dominant Mercedes of the current era.
Whatever the age of the recipient, there should be at least one poster that’s perfect for them. Choose from the retro-themed limited edition posters (shown), or the silver-embossed collector’s edition prints.
Official Hesketh Racing Cap
There’s little F1 headgear out there more eye-catching than a Hesketh Racing baseball cap. The original rock ‘n roll F1 team, Hesketh were notable for their off-track presence almost as much as their on-track success with James Hunt.
Jochen Rindt – A Champion With Hidden Depth | Hardback
This comprehensive study of Jochen Rindt, the man and the racing driver, is richly illustrated with private photos and racing shots – some of which have never been shown before. Included are pictures from Alois Rottensteiner, who was also close to Rindt and part of the racing scene of the 1960s and 1970s.
Jim Clark – 1:2 scale helmet
A half-scale replica of the iconic helmet worn by Jim Clark. Based on the helmet work by Clark in the 1965 and 1966 seasons, this detailed replica includes the white peak fixed by three studs, cloth strap and metal buckle. A donation from every sale goes to the Jim Clark Trust.
Lewis Hamilton limited edition print
The most successful grand prix driver of all time when it comes to race wins, and on his way to a record-equalling seventh Formula 1 championship too. Lewis Hamilton has dominated the sport in the past decade and this print celebrates his winning partnership with Mercedes.

Jackie Stewart – Tyrrell 003 | Art Print
1971 was a superlative season for Jackie Stewart and Tyrrell, with the Scot winning six races to take that year’s World Championship. Man and machine are at one in this Andrew Barber fine art print, which is available in three sizes as part of a limited edition run of 90 signed and numbered copies.
“The Glove” Ayrton Senna – Monaco 1990 | Signed by Michael Hewett
Mesmeric Monaco qualifying laps were an Ayrton Senna speciality, not least in 1990 when he beat Alain Prost’s Ferrari to pole by 1.5 seconds. This exclusive photographic print, hand signed by Michael Hewett, was taken just after the session, and shows him holding up his left hand, apparently blistered from the effort of steering at the limit on the tight circuit.
Jacky Ickx – Brabham | Scalextric Legends Series
Few cars better represent Formula 1’s high-wing era than the Brabham BT26A-3. Test for yourself how the dual-wing setup affects downforce in the curves with this 1969 Jacky Ickx Scalextric slot car.
Black and Gold – JPS Lotus | Motoring Leg-Ends Socks
Part of the Motoring Leg-Ends collection, which brings famous racing liveries to your ankles. Cleverly designed for discreet allegiance when you’re wearing shoes and the full, unmissable effect when you’re padding around at home. If the mid-’80s Lotus livery isn’t your style, Martini stripes, the orange and blue of Gulf, and a chequered flag scheme are among your other options.
