Manor assets to be auctioned

An auction is to be held to sell off the assets of Formula One team Manor.

More than 4,000 items belonging to the now defunct Formula One team Manor will be auctioned next month.

Staff at the Banbury-based operation were made redundant in January after operating company Just Racing Services Limited ceased trading, with efforts to secure a rescue deal falling flat.

The team's assets will now be sold off in an online auction to pay creditors.

"This sale will appeal to anyone with an interest in motorsport," said Neal Weekes, director at Gordon Brothers, who will oversee the auction. 

"Subject to availability, we will have Formula One rolling chassis, a large quantity of pit lane equipment, two wind tunnel models and a plethora of car body parts and components including tubs, front and rear wings, engine covers and side pods, together with steering wheels and wheel rims.

"In addition, there is a significant selection of race and team branded clothing.

"The largest items in the sale are two 'pop-up' road trailers the team used as their operations centre at every Grand Prix."

The sale, for which the catalogue will be made available this month, is similar to the auction of Caterham's assets following that team's demise in 2015.
