Father’s Day gift ideas for motor racing fans
Jody Scheckter signed Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler
One of the most famous examples of F1 innovation; the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34 still captures the imagination, almost five decades after it appeared in 1976.
This 1:24 scale model is signed by Jody Scheckter who drove the car to victory in the 1976 Swedish Grand Prix, becoming the only driver to win in a six-wheeled car; a record which stands to this day.
Supplied with a certificate of authenticity, these models are ready to display, mounted on a base. There’s also the option of a smaller 1:43-scale model, also signed by Scheckter for £69.95.
Mr Le Mans, Tom Kristensen
No driver has won the Le Mans 24 Hours race more than Tom Kristensen. And in his nine victorious years (plus a further five where he finished on the podium), he’s gathered plenty of tales. These are weaved together with personal reflections and insights into one of the all-time racing greats.
Along with collaborator Dan Philipsen, Kristensen recounts his climb up the racing ladder; his Le Mans debut, where he won as an underdog, and what it takes to remain at the pinnacle of endurance racing. It’s an inspirational book that will resonate with any Dad with an interest in motor sport.

F1 1980s DVDs
Catch up on an epic period of the F1 story with full highlights of 1980-1989, a decade where championships typically went down to the wire; Niki Lauda won a third title by just half a point, and Keke Rosberg became champion after a single race victory.
Nelson Piquet took three championships; Nigel Mansell missed out; and the rise of Ayrton Senna brought one of the sport’s most famous rivalries.
Sharknose V6 book
If you’re determined to make your Dad’s Father’s Day, then this book will go a long way to making it happen.
This lavish 432-page volume tells the story of the iconic Ferrari 156 with new, previously unpublished photographs by Bernard Cahier; detailed race-by-race tales, plus tales of the drivers and engineers behind the car; and attempts to replicate the machine in the modern era — after all originals were described.
definitive record of Ayrton Senna’s racing life provides detailed coverage of every single car race in which he competed, including Formula Ford, Formula 3 and Formula 1, in addition to one-off appearances and tests in other categories, such as the World Sports Car Championship and Indycar.
It’s a detailed history of the car that dominated the 1961 F1 season.
Jim Clark replica helmet
The design is simple but its familiar sight immediately conjures up the majestic talent of Jim Clark. This half-scale replica of the Scot’s helmet pays tribute to the talent underneath the visor.
A donation from the sale of each helmet goes to The Jim Clark Trust to support the Jim Clark Museum
F1 Car by Car: 1990-1999
Detailing every car during one of Formula 1’s most exciting periods, this comprehensive new book covers the title-winning McLarens, Williams and Benettons of the 1990s, as well as those who raced behind them on the grid — plus several that never made the grid at all.
Each season is explored in-depth, examining each of the teams and their cars, accompanied by more than 550 colour photographs.
If your father’s favourite era was a little earlier, other books in the series give the same treatment to:
The F1 cars of the 1980s
The F1 cars of the 1970s
The F1 cars of the 1960s
The F1 cars of the 1950s
Carroll Shelby signed Aston Martin DBR1 box set
Signed by Carroll Shelby, this model recreates the Aston Martin DBR1 in which he and Roy Salvadori won the 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours.
It remains the greatest Aston Martin racing triumph, coming at the end of a decade in which its cars had always fallen short at the legendary race.
But with Stirling Moss playing the role of ‘hare’ by racing into the lead and luring the Ferraris to lap at car-breaking pace, the scene was finally set for an Aston victory. Moss’s machine failed, and so did the Ferraris, leaving the path was clear for Salvadori and Shelby to win.
That victory is celebrated here in 1:18 scale. The model comes in a mahogany wood finish box with brass fittings, along with a certificate of authenticity.
Suixtil Nassau knitted polo shirt
We’ll never return to the glamour of ’50s racing where you could perch on a hay bale and make eye contact with drivers as they raced by, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate the look.
This knitted cotton polo shirt, inspired by the ’50s and ’60s attire of Stirling Moss, offers timeless style, whether your dad can remember the era or not.
