We are delighted to hear that in addition to the 4th annual auction, held Friday 5th February 2016 the InterContinental London Park Lane hotel, the online auction also helped to raise valuable funds for the charity’s beneficiary, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSHCC).

The event in London, where Neuschwansteiner was the official welcome drink, saw notable attendees from the world of motor racing including guests like Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner and his wife Geri, Red Bull Racing’s star-designer Adrian Newey, Lotus F1™-drivers Jolyon Palmer and reserve driver Carmen Jorda, Manor Racing reserve driver Alexander Rossi and former F1™-driver Karun Chandhok.

A selection of photographs taken and signed by F1™-drivers and team principals were auctioned in front of the star-studded audience in aid of the charity.

The bidding process during the auction was exciting as always and we are very happy for our partner ZOOM Charity that everything went so well.
