Classic cars and charity lots will share centre stage at the ‘Pride & Joy’ auction at CarFest North hosted by Silverstone Auctions in aid of BBC Children in Need on Sunday 9th September.
With more than 50 lots confirmed for the sale, there is still time to attend the event as Silverstone Auctions has secured a limited number of day passes for CarFest North priced at £60 each. These can be purchased by calling Silverstone Auctions on 01926 691 141.
Those attending will be treated to a diverse and exciting range of classic cars, motorbikes and other charity lots.
For bidders with deeper pockets there is a 2005 Ford GT (Lot 144), estimated at £115,000 to £125,000, a 1993 Lamborghini Diablo (Lot 115), estimated at between £53,000 to £60,000, and a 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 Roadster (Lot 124), estimated at between £52,000 to £58,000.

Meanwhile, there are more than 15 cars entered with estimate prices starting at under £10,000 typifying the spirit of the ‘Pride & Joy’ sale and ensuring that many items remain within reach of most of the event’s visitors.
Charity entries include two tickets for Liverpool FC against Manchester United (Lot 129) on 23rd September, a behind the scenes experience to watch Saturday Kitchen filmed in London (Lot 121) and a factory tour of Aston Martin in Warwickshire (Lot 141).
Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “We hope to repeat the success that we enjoyed at CarFest South when we helped raise £60,000 for BBC Children in Need and all the signs bode well if the diversity of lots we have on offer is anything to go by.
“It really does promise to be a highlight of the auction year and what’s even better is that it’s in aid of a very worthy cause.”
Those unable to attend but also keen to bid can do so by telephone, by leaving a commission bid or live online via i-Bidder.com.
Viewing of the lots takes place on the Saturday (8th) and until 2pm on the Sunday (9th) and is then followed shortly afterwards by the auction. For more details, and to view all of the cars on offer, visit www.silverstoneauctions.com/
