Signed Nigel Mansell 2018 Autosport Award Table Centre - 1:18 (DC2018AA)
On Sunday 2nd December, one of the most prestigious annual events in the motorsport calendar took place: the Autosport Awards Gala dinner. It's always held in the Great Room at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, and anybody who's anybody in the world of racing is to be found in the audience. World Champions abound, and all the teams and sponsors take tables to applaud the winners of the various awards that are voted for by the readers of Autosport and F1 Racing magazines.
On the night, tens of thousands of pounds were raised for charity. Much of the money that is raised comes from the table centre presentations that sit on each one of the 130 tables. The starting bid for one of these presentations is £300, but with the high rollers on many of these tables, many go for much more.
This year's presentation comprised a polished pewter representation of Nigel Mansell's 1989 Ferrari F1-89 640. Amalgam created this sculpture exclusively for the evening, all of which were hand-signed by the 1992 Formula One world champion. As ever, we were only able to obtain a handful of these table centres. They are extremely collectible, so always highly coveted. The few we have are priced at £1000 each, and obviously there won't ever be any more. When they're gone, that's it until next year's Award's night!
