On January 16th 2015, Formula 1 will gather together to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital through its third annual Zoom charity auction.
F1 drivers, team principals and Bernie Ecclestone will be in attendance as their own signed photographs are auctioned off for the Nikon-affiliated event. Each photo was taken during the memorable 2014 season and will offer a unique insight into the often exclusive world of high performance racing.
Suzi Perry will return to host this year’s Zoom auction, saying: “I’m delighted to be back for a second year. This is an amazing event, an opportunity to buy one off pieces signed by racing heroes, whilst raising money for such a great cause.”
At the beginning of next year, a book will be published featuring each of the auctioned photos with all the proceeds helping the children’s charity. More details about the book will be available in due course.
Until then, here is a teaser of what is to come and a sample of the photos on offer. You can also keep up with all Zoom activity on the Twitter page.
Toto Wolff – ‘Bahrain selfie’:
“It’s a selfie from the most dramatic race of the year, Bahrain, and has a rather prominent photo bomber – the promoter of the Malaysian GP!”
Jenson Button – Cockpit’:
“I have the best job in the world – and this is my office!”
“Let life flow like a river, follow the path it takes you down. Take it as it comes & whilst you learn along the way, may you help guide the flow in the direction of your dreams.”
