Saleroom notices

  • Please note, that since this catalogue was published, further research indicates that that this helmet was worn by Ickx during the 1976 Grand Prix Season but was not the helmet worn during his 1976 24-Hour Le Mans winning race. This helmet was formerly part of the Peter Warr Collection (not as printed in the catalogue). (Errata) The car driven by Ickx at the 1976 Le Mans was the Martini Porsche 936 (not as catalogued).
