Jim Bamber was a well known motorsport cartoonist and his work featured in Autosport magazine every week for over 25 years. As Sir Jackie Stuart O.B.E. put it "Jim was well know in the motorsport community for his wit and wisdom of his cartoons. Few of us escaped his attention over the years."
In addition to his cartoon work Jim was keen to build this superb, limited edition collection of models as a lasting tribute to his racing "Heroes".
He also wanted to support a charity with it and the idea quickly won the support of all featured drivers and teams, who gave their permission for each edition free of charge.
The first charity to benefit from the collection was the Grand Prix Trust (Previously the Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable Trust), of which Sir Jackie Stewart is Chairman.
The collection also supports the Motorsport Safety Fund and the Instituto Ayrton Senna.
