[20 th March 2024] – F1 Authentics – owned by Memento Exclusives, the sports memorabilia specialists located in UK’s Motorsport Valley – is hosting a spectacular online auction, the Idols Auction, celebrating the stars of the track and screen by auctioning authentic history from some of the sport’s biggest drivers.

 The auction hosted on the online F1 Authentics platform – closing on 28th March – features the official Stake F1® Team Kick Sauber C44 Show Car used by the team to unveil the car at their very own launch event, held on 5th February at Guildhall London. The car was built in partnership with the newly branded Stake F1® Team Kick Sauber for the 2024 season and manufactured using official CAD data supplied by the team. This is an unmissable opportunity for fans to own a one-of-a-kind piece of history, which marks an iconic rebrand for the team and the start of the 2024 season.

 The Idols Auction will also feature a First Edition AMR24 Simulator, signed by Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll. The simulator also saw the two drivers jump into its cockpit, meaning fans can sit in the same seat as two of their F1 idols – an unparalleled opportunity.

 The auction is looking to celebrate the stars of the track and screen, hosting a selection of incredible memorabilia from some of the most iconic names on the grid – both past and present. With racewear, authentic car parts, eye-catching prints and more all available, the Idols Auction is a true celebration of the sport’s best.

Fans will also be able to get their hands on authentic racewear from the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix, worn by a selection of the drivers as they tackled the street circuit in the neon capital. This marked the first F1 race in Las Vegas since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, making it an exciting race for fans – now they can own a piece of history from the event in the form of Grand Prix used suits, Nomex tops, balaclavas, boots, gloves and more.

 Barry Gough, CEO & Founder of Memento Exclusives and F1 Authentics, commented: “The Idols Auction is one of our biggest and best campaigns to date and we are so excited to be offering fans the opportunity to own the official Stake F1® Team Kick Sauber C44 Launch Car. We built the Show Car in house at F1 Authentics in partnership with the team so we couldn’t be happier to now be auctioning it to our customers as one of the headline items on the Idols Auction. The Show Car unveiled an exciting rebrand for the team’s 2024 season, so it is a really exciting piece of history and we’re expecting it to be a very popular piece on the auction.”
