NEWS: 143 Classics Hammer Down @SilverstoneAuc

How do you fancy owning this nuts & stupidly cool 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTR race car? Or indeed any of the other 142 special lots going under the hammer at the Silverstone Classic three-day auctionfest Thursday 28th to Sunday 31st July.
One has to where they've all been hiding and marvel at the talented crew responsible for bringing them to market. Yes, Silverstone Auctions returns once again to the Silverstone Classic event in just two days time. Excited? We are! 
They say: "With a dedicated race car sale, a two-day classic road car sale offering a huge variety of cars, as well as an extensive selection of collectible automobilia and luxury lifestyle items, Silverstone Auctions are set to host their biggest ever sale with a total of 450 lots.
"Headlining the competition car sale is a 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTR race car which has covered just 109 kilometres from new. One of only 17 examples made, it is the most original Porsche Silverstone Auction has ever seen and will be offered with a sale estimate between £475,000 and £575,000.
"A 1958 Lotus Elite Series I first owned by the jazz legend Chris Barber and with an incredible race history, is estimated at £75,000 to £100,000. Today the car has just emerged from a top quality, exacting restoration carried out by Ant Anstead’s team at Evanta Motors. Amazingly, the car will compete in a race at the Silverstone Classic before heading to the auction hall to be sold.
"Another incredibly sought after British sportscar, a 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster, Chassis #62, one of the ‘missing’ early examples of the model, will go to auction with a sale estimate of between £140,000 and £170,000."
Speaking ahead of the sale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, Nick Whale, said: "The Silverstone Classic Sale is one of our most exciting and high profile auctions in the calendar and it’s a delight to be back. We’ve been hosting an auction here at the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival for the past six years and it just gets bigger and better every year. This will be our biggest catalogue to date and one of our most intriguing catalogues ever."
Viewing of the lots will be available all day on Thursday 28th July before the Race Car Sale at 18:30. Viewing continues on Friday, with the two-day road car sale taking place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st from 12:30.
