Strider: Wow, Damon Hill won the 1988 Belgian Grand Prix? I thought it was Senna, silly me...

Lovely gesture by EJ, hope they raise a hefty sum of money.


LOL

Yeah that was the car that "gentleman racer" Hill promised to drive into the side of his team mate if he overtook him. EJ had no option but to beg Ralf not to pass him, he was having kittens when they crossed the line less than a second apart.

Edit: To keep certain people happy, the above opinion is based on the recollections of EJ. Obviously as just a team owner and recipient of the threatening radio message I wouldn't expect this to believed by those who think Damon is a top bloke.

Ben1: It is generous, but so strange to sell the trophies which are the fruits of your hard work, and you guarded them for a lot of years.


Agree with your comments, I was surprised when I opened this post. What a cracking donation from Eddie,
Gonna be some happy winning bidders on these items and great charities aided.

(I always loved the 7Up Jordan fantastic design and colour scheme, one of my favourite F1 cars after the Lotus 49 (without wings!)).

Eddie might come across as a bit of a plank,but his heart's in the right place.
He must be absolutely gutted to lose the 191 but he's no doubt met some of the kids that the charities support and it becomes a no brainer in the grand scheme of things.
A very generous gesture whatever.
Well done Mr Jordan.
