Jenson Button's Brawn GP trailer, up for sale on eBay
Fancy a massive piece of Formula 1 for your own? Then check this out: two Brawn GP trailers have been put up for sale on eBay.
Now, they weren’t Brawn’s to sell. They actually belonged to USF1, but as they collapsed, their assets were seized by the High Court (owned!). They were taken after a UK creditor, who cannot be identified for obvious reasons, wanted compensation for USF1 failing to pay their bills. David Carter, director of the Sheriffs Office, said:
"As a keen motorsport fan, it is certainly one of the more
interesting seizures we've made. The trailers were recently
bought from Brawn GP by the judgment debtor and really are
something special. We've already has a lot of interest and
are now selling them via eBay.
It would certainly be an interesting piece to a Formula 1 collection. But be prepared to fork out quite a lot of money: with 3 days and 17 hours left, the price is already £16,970! If you fancy following the auction anyways, then check it out here. There’s two more pictures here:
No idea what this is, but it comes with the trailer!
Could do with better styling, but it's part of Formula 1 history now!
