Bonhams to offer Ecurie Ecosse Collection at flagship 1 December Bond St sale

One of British motor racing’s most evocative liveries is the Flag Blue metallic with ‘sergeant stripes’ of Ecurie Ecosse. Arch-collector Dick Skipworth is now offering several team cars, plus the famous Commer transporter, at Bonhams' new event on 1st December at its totally rebuilt Bond St offices.

The transporter was immortalised by Corgi Toys in the early 60s and is a regular sight at historic race meetings worldwide. The cars are headed by ‘MWS 303’, the short-nosed D-type Jaguar driven by Ron Flockhart, and also include a C-type, a Tojeiro-Jaguar, a Cooper T49 Monaco, a Tojeiro-Buick Coupé and, rather incongruously, a 1961 Austin-Healey ‘Sebring’ Sprite.

No estimates have yet been given, although we are sure that in today’s heady collectors’ market this sale will hit the headlines for yet more record-breaking sums.
