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 Grand Prix which he crashed and he sustained serious burns to his arms and legs in this accident.
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 in Switzerland from whom we acquired it directly.
A truly unique opportunity to acquire a piece of memorabilia from Hawthorn's personal possession.
Measures approximately 1.25 inches in diameter and is made of 18 carat gold.

Vintage Original 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster.
June 21 & 22, 1958.
It measures approximately:11 x 15 inches28 x 38 cm
This is an extremely scarce example of the 1958 24 Heures du Mans poster.
It is in in as mint a condition as a poster of over half a century old can be; truly SPECTACULAR!
The 1958 Le Mans poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.
The design of the 1958 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his first work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.
Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to the new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.
The car is going into the Dunlop curve, just having passed under the famous Dunlop bridge.
The night and the crowd are of course present but Beligond is not too concerned about depicting a real race but instead shows the make that was favorite for the 1958 race, Ferrari!
The race was indeed won by Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill in their Nr. 14 Ferrari 250 TR58 0728TR with a total of 305 laps to their name.
For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1958.
This poster is VERY scarce and will be shipped, rolled, is a VERY sturdy (PVC) tube.

2 Vintage 1958 photos of Mike Hawthorn on Ferrari 246, Race of two Worlds, Monza.
This lot consists of two photographs taken in the paddock preceding the 1958 Race of Two Worlds (or Monzanapolis) on June 29, 1958.
The first photograph shows Mike in his # 12 Ferrari 246 and the second shows the same car surrounded by the crowd.
The race of Two Worlds was basically an exhibition event to show both American and European teams to the public and was held in 1957 & 1958 at the banked track of Monza.
These photographs date from the 1958 event and quite an event it was for Ferrari!
In the first heat (of 3) Luigi Musso succumbed to the methanol fumes and handed his car over to Mike Hawthorn in lap 27. Musso returned to the wheel in the last lap and brought the car home in 6th place.
In the third heat, Mike suffered the same fate as Luigi did in the first and handed the car over to Phil Hill who brought the car up to third place before handing it back to Mike again.
All in all, not a great success for Ferrari!
These are vintage photos, i.e. they were printed shortly after the image was captured on film.
Each photo measures some 10 x 7 cm or 4 x 2.75 inches and are in excellent condition.
The backs carry some notes but NO photographer's stamp.

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 plaque went straight from Mike's estate, in 1959, to an important collector in Switzerland from whom we acquired it.
It measures approximately 3.4 x 1.5 inches.
