AutoArt Bentley Speed 8 1:18 80353
This is the Multi Signed Back Board that sits in the display box of the 2003 LeMans Race Winning No.7 Model made by AutoArt, as mentioned in the previous item. A difficult one to 'let go' as it brings back great memories, but it needs to go to a new home to be appreciated rather than be hidden away in my collection.

This stunning display was built by an apprentice working for Benetton F1 in 1998 and features a 1:18 Minichamps model of the B198 Test Car, and then comes with the signatures of both of the drivers, Giancarlo Fisichella and Alexander Wurz, immediately below.

Signed Audi R8 Le Mans Winner 2000
Although some people would consider Maisto as a 'lower' brand of Diecast models, they had the contract to make the dominant Audi R8 Le Mans cars during the early 2000s, and they made a VERY nice job of them. I was lucky enough to work alongside Audi with their DTM project for 5 years, ans was able to get the silver 'backboard' of the box signed by the drivers that took this car to the 2000 Le Mans race win,(Kristensen,/Pirro/Biela), So quite possibly unique.
