Classic car sale at huge auction

A rally car used by Colin McRae and a Honda once driven by Ayrton Senna will go under the hammer this weekend.

The sale at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire will feature over 100 classic cars and motorbikes, with organisers describing it as one of the biggest ever auctions of its type.

McRae's 1977 Ford Escort Mk2 RS1800 Gp4 is one of 42 cars with a track or rally competition background available at the Race Retro sale.

The car was tested by the late Colin McRae and driven by his father Jimmy as well as brother Alister to victory in historic rally events.

Meanwhile, there is plenty for Formula 1 fans to get excited about.

A 1978 James Hunt race helmet is expected to fetch between £18,000 and £25,000, while Ayrton Senna's 1992 Honda NSX has a guide price of between £75,000 and £85,000.
