Nigel Mansells 1995 McLaren

After doing a couple of races for Williams during the 1994 season, “our Nige” made a spectacular comeback for 1995, but for all the wrong reasons, it started badly for Mansell because he was too fat to fit into the car which meant that Mark Blundell started the the season in his place while McLaren made a new car in which to fit Mr. Mansell, eventually Nigel got his drive but gave up before the end of the season.

This was to be Mansells last season in F1, he now owns a kart track where he recently entered his own competition only to finish second to a gas fitter, he also manages his two sons in there quest to win the British F3 Championship

Ayrtons Williams 1994

Now as a F1 model collection goes this is a must, the 1994 Williams of Ayrton brought the world of formula one to its knees when on the 1st of May after having a safety car period Senna went of the track and collided with the barrier.

it is strange to think that this is not only my first memory of motor racing but also my first ever memory, at the time i didn’t think much of it at the time but now I start to wonder what would of happened the rest of seaso, with Williams winning the two previous championships and now the legendary Ayrton there was only going to be one memorable ending, unfortunately it was memorable for all the wrong reasons.
