Sean Bratches, Managing Director Commercial Operations, Formula 1, said:
“We are thrilled to be partnering with RM Sotheby’s to host the first ever car auction on the grid in Abu Dhabi, bringing together like-minded enthusiasts for the first ever collector car auction of this caliber In the Middle East. We are always looking for ways to increase a fans experience and while not everyone will take away a piece of motorsport history, we are excited for fans to view this incredible collection across the race weekend.”
Maarten ten Holder, Head of Europe & Chief Auctioneer, RM Sotheby’s said:
“We see both a parallel passion for motoring between car collectors and F1 fans, as well as a parallel adrenaline in the auction room and on the circuit. F1 Grands Prix are the historic motorsport events that have inspired the values of so many of the important cars RM Sotheby’s has sold and the stories that we curate at our auctions around the world. We look forward to bringing the best of post-war sports classics, racers, and supercars to a new market in Abu Dhabi.”
