This is a vintage 1953 photo of Mike Hawthorn and Tom Cole in their # 38 & 37 Ferrari 340MM's either before or after the 1953 International Trophy at Silverstone.

We are pleased to be able to offer for sale this absolutely unique piece of motoring history:
This medal was given to Mike Hawthorn for competing in the 1954 Syracuse Grand Prix.
Mike drove a Ferrari 625 in this event which he crashed heavily. He sustained serious burns to his arms & legs.
This is what Road & Track wrote about the accident in 1954:
"....Marimon in a Maserati drove too close to the right side of the track and sent up a shower of hay. Blinded by the flying chaff, the second place car, a Ferrari with Hawthorn driving, crashed against the safety wall and the car caught fire. Gonzales, about seven feet behind Hawthorn, piled into the Englishman's car, careened and went into the wall. Both cars were destroyed by the flames and Hawthorn was taken to the hospital....".
Shown below is a photo from R&T of the scene of the accident.
This medal went straight from Mike's estate, in 1959, to an important collector from whom we acquired it.
A truly unique opportunity to acquire a piece of memorabilia from Hawthorn's personal possession.
It measures approximately 1.25 inches in diameter and is made of 18 carat gold.

1958 Plaque, Portugal Grand Prix given to Mike Hawthorn.
We are pleased to be able to offer for sale this fabulous piece of motoring history:
This plaque was given to Mike Hawthorn for competing in the 1958 Portugal Grand Prix at Porto race track.
Mike drove a Ferrari 246 and set the second fastest qualifying time behind Stirling Moss in his Vanwall. During the race, Mike set the fastest lap time (almost 2 seconds faster than Moss's pole time!) but still came in second after Moss.
This was of course all in Mike's Championship Winning year and it was the second to last time that Mike would race in a Grand Prix...
This is what Mike said after the race:
"I was upset to find that my race number was 22. Both Pete [Collins] and Luigi [Musso] had been killed on cars with 2 as their number, and the sight of 22 on mine really put the wind up me. I rushed off to Tavoni and asked if I might have 24, which was Taffy's number, and he and Taffy both agreed; only the numbers were changed, not the actual cars."
This medal went straight from Mike's estate, in 1959, to an important collector from whom we acquired it directly.
It measures approximately 3.4 x 1.5 inches.
