Rare items to go under the hammer


Fancy owning a signed helmet or steering wheel from F1 star Jenson Button or Lewis Hamilton? How about a jersey signed by the All Blacks?

Rare collectors’ items will go under the hammer at the upcoming Queenstown Auto Extravaganza.

A signed racing helmet by British Formula 1 driver Jensen Button and a framed steering wheel signed by world champion British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton will be going under the hammer this weekend.

The auction will be held as part of the Queenstown Auto Extravaganza Solid Gold FM Blues Party Night this Saturday night (26 February). Other auction highlights include a framed and signed All Blacks rugby jersey from the current squad, and a framed full size guitar signed by ACDC band members.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the Extravaganza’s charity, the New Zealand Prostate Cancer Foundation.

The three-day Queenstown Auto Extravaganza is being held this weekend (Friday 25 – Sunday 27 February) and the auction prizes are expected to draw enthusiasts from around the country, according to committee chairman Miles Wilson.

“It’s just incredible to secure these items. They will be highly sought after and they’re a great fundraising opportunity for the foundation,” he said.

Those wanting to partake in the auction but unable to attend the Blues Party Night can place their bid prior to the auction online at
