A very rare TWR Refueller’s helmet.

Sold Price: £402.50

Only the second I have ever seen on the open market in all the years since the TWR/Silk Cut era came to an end. Has “TWR” and “Silk Cut” logos. There is no indication of the maker, but there is an inscription inside – “K. 26.1.89”. The plastic visor has “misted” as usual and the clip on the left is missing. Both the visor and the clip can be replaced at little cost. A few rubs and scratches that does not detract. Inside is generally a little dusty but will clean up well with little trouble. One of the rarest of automobilia items from the Silk Cut era. Good with potential for VG.

Estimate Price: (e£75-95)

There are two black boards each with a scalpel-cut image of an XJR-10 in the suggested red livery. One shows the car in plan-view; the other a side-on view from the right.

Here lies the rarity value of these pieces as illustrations of the jockeying that goes on behind the scenes to secure and develop the sponsorship without which, there would be no racing. An unusual, important and probably unique slice of the history of Jaguar’s competitive achievements in North America. Fine. As a pair.
