Michael Schumacher's Benetton B191 to go under hammer

“B191 05 represents a highly important piece of both Benetton and Michael Schumacher's history...”
The car in which seven time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher scored his first ever points at the pinnacle of the sport is to be auctioned at COYS' sale at the Nurburgring in Germany on August 10.

The Benetton F1 Ford Cosworth is a 'direct derivative' of the B194, in which Schumacher took his first title in 1994.

It is eligible for any historic Grand Prix events and appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2003 and 2004.

The car is offered in 'excellent race-ready condition with Pi dashboard, a data acquisition system and all equipment necessary to run and drive the car, including a spare set of wheels and assorted spare components'.

It also includes a 'comprehensive' file documenting the car's history, restoration and its most recent race-preparation.

“This is a stunning and fine handling racing car,” said Chris Routledge, managing director of COYS. “B191 05 represents a highly important piece of both Benetton and Michael Schumacher's history. It is an opportunity not to be missed.”

Yes, I believe that the championship car is actually at his, well his brother's now, Kart track in Kerpen - Sindorf. It was mounted sideways on the wall where you paid your track fees for indoor or outdoor, and picked up some merchandise. On the indoor track itself, there was Michaels' Ferrari, Ralf's Jordan and another 2 cars sitting static off along various points of the track - but you got to see them in great detail as you blasted past in the kart. I was there quite a few years ago, but was incredible. I've always been a huge Schumacher fan since day 1 - hence the pilgrimage to his home town and kart track. Always saddened me that I never got to meet him
