Nigel Mansell packs up his F1 memories as collection moves from Devon home
Former F1 world champion Nigel Mansell was dusting off his unique collection of trophies and racing cars yesterday as he moved them from Devon to his new home in the Channel Isles.
Mr Mansell, who left the Westcountry for Jersey, plans to house his collection of F1 cars and memorabilia there rather than at their former home at Woodbury Park, near Exeter. He said he would give up to half the money it makes to good causes in his new island home.
The collection includes cars he drove in championship races and trophies he had won.
He said he was unique among F1 drivers because he was allowed to keep all the trophies he won.
