Show us your F1 Memorabilia / F1 related items you've bought

I have been increasing my 'hoard' of F1 memorabilia recently, and thought it about time I shared the collection with you.

> First off, I have my XP5 Suit carrier


> My selection of Lapel pins and Christmas card from Mclaren









> 'Cars' by Gary Numan CD and special edition record (!)





>A 1995 Le Mans press pack on #06R



> Le Mans programmes from 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998









> A Programme from the 1998 FIA GT Championship at Silverstone



> A Programme from the 1998 FIA GT Championship from Donington



> A Programme from the 1997 FIA GT Champiosnhip from Silverstone



> A Programme from the 1999 Silverstone British GT



> I've also recently obtained a 1995 GULF filofax (!) with inserts signed by the drivers













> A VIP pass from the 1997 Le Mans, again from GULF (pic to come)

> Some signed photos





> Gulf - The Story of Le Mans 1997 on VHS (pic to come)


A programme from The Gulf Oil Global GT Challenge held at Brands hatch in September 1996



There may be more, but I can't think of them at the moment

Let's try to keep the books to the other thread, but what F1-linked memorablilia do you have??

Got a Mclaren and F1 rear grill badge will take some pics, not production items as they are brass and not chrome unless they were special order, just thought may even be gold need to check that out.

Re: Show us your F1 Memorabilia / F1 related items you've bought

HOH what a collection you have Hurstg01! Superb! Long time work and all those are super rare in to the future!

Well I really haven't that much things, but some. Of course the scale models are the biggest things I have bought. http://kuvablogi.com/blog/1949/73/ .
But also there is some VHS, DVD and some GULF press? cards and less and more luckyly got singature cards.

But the most valuable thing to my self is the self made binder. (Sorry if this is off topic, because it isn't bought stuff ) Back then 95-97, I was just 16 years an old I loved to do things like this.

I cuted images of the magazines, printed them out of the Internet, put some glue and stick to clear A4 white paper and so on. Here is couple of shots of that binder, great to read now after over 10 years time.
Hope you like it!

This is the cover.


Next few pages are F1 roadcar


Need For Speed- images....




Not very often seen engine pic? I think?


Crash news


The LM, think XP1?


The GTR's!


#01R! (if you want the text, please ask I tell you)




I think this was a Helsinki Thunder program catalog....


Most biggest Finnish news paper; Helsingin Sanomat made a big story about aerodynamics when Helsinki GT Race weekend was close, back 1997 is this one.




And some collected magazines/news paper images.


These both are great stuff!



And some magazines, about 10years ago



Rest of the images you'll find here:

Sami, you really are a JJ fan!

Carbuilder - fingers crossed they are gold!!

I'd really like either a pedal or gear lever off the F1 - that would make a dream come true

Yes, Yes Yes I am! And a GTR Fan!!!!! (Thanks for the help find the J.J's GTR's!)
First I loved the F1 roadcar, then I saw the GTR and then the LM and I was sold. And then some man from Finland; J.J Lehto made some motorsport history with GTR McLaren's, what more I could ask. Loved the car and what J.J done with those; it was brilliant! One of the greatest racing cars ever (incredible history) and Finnish driver, very skilled one, great!!!!

And the document what was new for me this week; I found the clips what I have been saw over 10 years ago, I had them a quicktime versions, but I've lost them. And now I finally got them back a full version!

Re: Show us your F1 Memorabilia / F1 related items you've bought

Some VERY interesting objects here indeed!

Like most here I have assorted 'clutter' re: the F1. Magazines, Brochures, Press Packs, Books, Prints, etc.

I was offered a handbook and service book at one point in my early insanity, but the price was immensely scary, and I politely declined. Afraid I can't recall from which car.

My Scale Model collection has been my biggest investment as it started with one 1:43rd Minichamps Red Road Car, and has grown to maybe - never documented how many actually - 100(?) F1's of all scales 1:87 -1:12 and incarnations. Stuck WELL clear of the toys from Maisto and Guilloy however. Greg, having just lost your virginity to this disease recently, be warned of what's coming!

I think the most obscure thing I have is a postage stamp from some former Soviet country featuring an F1LM. Erik, can you recall which country? I think it was discussed - maybe scanned and posted - here in the past. Don't know where the bugger is now!

Such small nations, 5 million people (like my home nation, Scotland) and yet sooooooooooooooo many GREAT drivers in race and rally.

I'm afraid I can't spell Finnish. But you've had a huge amount of unpronouncable-named drivers!

Scotland has also brought forward names like Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, Allan McNeish, Dario Franchetti, Colin MacRae, ettc.

Believe you are referring to this - not sure which country, but obviously somewhere in eastern Europe.

Yep, somethings are quite strange, why this is like this?
Well most of the top Finnish drivers are rally drivers, they live Midlle-Finland where is nothing but woods and gravel roads, so it's easy to start hobby with rally cars. And also luck needed as well to get top of the world. But then there is J.J Lehto, Mika Häkkinen, Mika Salo, Kimi Räikkönen, Heikki Kovalainen and not to forget Keke Rosberg..... Same thing there Scotland, strange things these really, why so small nations but great drivers, no one can tell the reason, I think?

That's the stamp indeed.

Did a Google, apparently it's The Republic of Kalmykia - The only Buddhist nation in Europe - that's a new one on me! NEVER heard of the place! Despite owning the stamp a few years.

Call me dim Greg, but what's the significance of the 240 under the logo?

The pin was made to commemorate the F1 achieving the highest speed for a production road car making it the (then) World's Fastest car. I suppose 240.1mph wouldn't fit as well
