The Lotus and Williams car panels that will be up for auction at Bourne Auction Rooms

Two pieces of Formula One memorabilia have been sold at an auction.

An airduct intake panel from a 1989 Camel Team Lotus F1 car, which was driven by Nelson Piquet, was sold for £240. It was bought by Classic Team Lotus.

An airduct intake panel from the Williams FW33, which was developed for the 2011 Formula One racing season and driven by Rubens Barrichello and Pastor Maldonado, was sold for £400 to a private collector.

The items were sold at Bourne Auction Rooms, which is based in the workshops of former racing team BRM in Spalding Road.

Saleroom manager Alastair McPhie-Meiklejon said: “I’m really pleased Classic Team Lotus were the successful bidders. They will be using the panel again on the car it was originally built for, which is really nice actually.”
