Iconic Auctioneers has thanked the classic community after Race Retro’s sudden cancellation forced a sudden switch of venue for its first sales of the year.

Flooding at the event’s Stoneleigh Park venue meant that the cars due to be sold on 23-24 February were re-located to Silverstone Circuit. Despite the disruption the collector cars sale saw ten price records being broken, with the 38 cars pulling in a £2,792,282 sale total, with an average price of £74,481 and a sale rate of 59 per cent. In addition, 23 competition cars sold for a total of £1,254,245.

Managing director Rob Hubbard said: ‘I just want to say a big thank you to all of Iconic Auctioneers’ loyal customers for their support in coming to the Silverstone Circuit following the Race Retro cancellation.

'It was no easy feat'

‘These are fantastic results considering the auctions’ change of location; we were delighted with the turnout for the event. I also have to thank my amazing team for turning this event around - finding a new venue, setting it up in record time, getting the word out there – it was no easy feat.’
