Memorabilia Collection for our Spring 2018 Sale
Malcolm Palmer is a lifelong motorsport enthusiast, who became a technician engineer working on diverse competition cars such as the Tony Pond Mini Cooper and Lotus Cortina rally cars to Penske Indy Cars. Malcolm turned to marshalling as a hobby and became a member of the British Motor Racing Marshals Club; working at circuits and rallies in the UK and abroad, he rubbed shoulders with many of the great drivers both from the past and from more recent times, giving him the opportunity to collect motorsport memorabilia.
We are very pleased to be offering Malcolm’s covetable collection at our forthcoming spring auction sale, which will include numerous lapel badges for: the RAC Rally of Great Britain with year bars for: 1966, ’67, ’69, ’70 and ’71; the London Rally with 1967 and ’68 bars; the Daily Mirror World Cup Rally; the A.C.O 24 Hours le Mans; Team McLaren Mercedes; Penske; the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting; Ford Steward Grand Prix and others.
