We are delighted to share the news that Goodwood Estate Partner Bonhams will host the first ever classic car auction at Goodwood Members’ Meeting in 2015.
To be held on 21 March, the newly announced sale will be the third Bonhams auction hosted at Goodwood, alongside the annual Festival of Speed Sale (26 June 2015) and the Goodwood Revival sale (12 September 2015).
Leading the sale will be the ex-Kitty Maurice 1955 Frazer Nash Le Mans Coupé (pictured left). Spotted racing at several Members’ Meetings in period, the beautiful Sea Green coupé is offered with an estimate of £600,000 to 700,000.
“Bonhams sale at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting completes our trio of sales at this famous motoring location. The timing is perfect, allowing buyers a full season of recreational or competitive motoring for the year ahead. The Members’ Meeting is a fantastically revived re-enactment of Goodwood race meetings from yesteryear, and provides the perfect backdrop for a Bonhams auction,” says James Knight, Bonhams International Motoring Director, adding, “Consignments are now being accepted for this newly established sale, and look forward to presenting our customers with some exceptional entries.”
Located at the Chicane Paddock within the motor circuit, the auction will be streamed live online via the Bonhams website, and will feature over 50 sports, touring and classic motor cars.
“Bonhams has been a loyal partner of Goodwood ever since the first Festival of Speed in 1993 and the decision to hold an auction at the 73rd Members’ Meeting to complement the annual Festival of Speed and Revival sales is a testament to the value of our association,” says Lord March. “I’m sure the Members’ Meeting sale, which is sure to include some stunning historic cars, will be another huge success.”
