Former Formula One team owner and BBC pundit Eddie Jordan will auction off two F1 cars for charity.

The first car that is up for grabs is a 1991 Jordan-Ford that raced in the Belgian Grand Prix, the reason behind the importance of this car? It was the car that seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher made his F1 debut in.

The German’s helmet, which is signed, is also included in the sale.

The second car is also another famous Jordan to have entered the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa. This time the 1998 race where Damon Hill won Jordan’s first ever F1 Grand Prix.

The trophy, Damon Hill’s race suit and helmet are also included.

All auction items will come with a certificate of authenticity from Eddie Jordan [just in case no-one believed they were genuine] and will receive the items at a special Silverstone presentation by Eddie Jordan.

‘I kept these two F1 cars because of their history, the good memories and what they meant to the team. However, it’s time to let them go and the money will be used to good effect helping young people and their families cope with cancer. It will also help young people get back on the straight and narrow, which is why I’ve chosen the Amber Foundation for this and CLIC Sargent for its work with cancer patients.’ Jordan told the media.
