The Monaco Grand Prix is rightly considered as the most technical, complex, highly glamorous motor racing street circuit in the world. While street racing in the Principality can be traced back to the late 20s, the first World Championship of Drivers race took place on 21 May 1950. The 100-lap race covered an overall distance of 318.1 km (197.1 miles) and was won by Juan Manuel Fangio for the Alfa Romeo team after he started from pole position. Alberto Ascari finished second for Ferrari and Louis Chiron finished third for Maserati.
Sir Jackie Stewart, known as the Flying Scot, competed in Formula One between 1965 and 1973 winning three world drivers’ championships in 1969, 1971 and 1973 and is now known as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport. In 2016 Sir Jackie formed Race Against Dementia to fund research into the treatment and prevention of the diseases that cause dementia, using lessons learnt in Formula One’s approach to research and technology. His beloved wife of 56 years Lady Helen Stewart was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2014. Today, 50 million people have dementia. One in three people born today will die with dementia and a new person develops dementia every 2.5 seconds. A percentage of all sales from the Champions of Monaco luxury leather duffle bag will be donated to Race Against Dementia.
Sir Jackie Stewart said “I’ve used a Simon Jordan bag for many years and was delighted when he suggested creating a unique product to support my Race Against Dementia charity. Dementia is a cruel disease that will affect many of our lives, it is my aim to ensure we do all we can to beat the disease and ease the lives of those who suffer from it. Every Champions of Monaco bag sold will help our charity thanks to our partnership with Jordan Bespoke.”
Simon Jordan, Founder of Jordan Bespoke said “Every Jordan Bespoke product has a part of my heart and soul within it, especially when it is motorsport related, but working with a hero like Sir Jackie to help the Race Against Dementia, takes this to another level. My Father suffers with dementia and I know how destructive it is. Playing a small part in the fight against the disease is very important to me and many others around the world.
If you love stylish design, quality leather, motorsport and would like to help support a very worthy charity, place an order for this unique item.
Race Against Dementia is a registered charity in England and Wales (1165559), founded by Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE. The Race Against Dementia Fellowship Programme provides both funding and outstanding development opportunities for early career dementia scientists.
