The remaining assets of the now-defunct Manor Formula 1 operation are to be sold off at auction in the coming months.

After dicing with financial difficulties for much of its seven-year stint in F1, Manor finally closed its doors in February after entering administration and failing to find a new buyer.

The team finished last in the 2016 F1 constructors’ championship, with the shortfall in prize money¬†acting as the final nail in its coffin.

Following its closure, Manor’s remaining assets will now be auctioned off by Gordon Brothers in England, with a number of notable goods up for grabs.

The listing includes the 1:6 wind tunnel model of Manor’s 2017 car that circulated the internet upon the team’s closure, showing what its new chassis would have looked like for the new season.

Pit lane equipment is also available, which may be of interest to other racing teams, as would the hospitality trailer that Manor used to take to races.

The following items are listed on Gordon Brothers’ website:

  • 4 x Manor Racing Formula 1 Rolling Chassis Show Cars (2015/2016)
  • 2017 Manor Formula 1 Wind Tunnel Model (6:1)
  • Pit Lane Equipment
  • Manor Racing Drivers and Race Team Clothing & General Merchandise
  • Test Jigs, Engineering & Inspection Equipment
  • Large Quantity of Consumables
  • 5 x Formula 1 Car Steering Wheels
  • 2014/2015/2016 Car Parts to include 3 x Tubs, over 200 Wheel Rims, Tyres, Nosecones, Panels, Engine Covers, Rear Wings etc.
  • 2 x Pop Up Trailers and Hospitality Trailer
  • Gazebos, Banner Boards, Flight Cases & Freight Cages
  • Office Furniture and I.T.
