On the 50th Anniversary of Jackie’s first of three World Championships, the Autosport Awards honoured Sir Jackie with the table centre – made by fine model makers Amalgam, which were sold on the night of the awards to benefit Racing Dementia.
This un-numbered table centre is very rare, not used on a table on the night, but as a spare, it is therefore in mint condition, complete with card wrap, clear cover, model and leather wallet containing the COA. Sir Jackie Stewart, nicknamed the “Flying Scot”, competed in Formula One between 1965 and 1973, winning three World Drivers’ Championships and twice finishing as runner-up over those nine seasons.
In 1969, driving the Matra MS80-Cosworth, Stewart had a number of races where he completely dominated the opposition, such as winning by over two laps at Montjuïc, a minute in front at Clemont-Ferrand and by more than a lap at Silverstone. With additional wins at Kyalami, Zandvoort, and Monza, Stewart became world champion.
Until 2005 he was the only driver to have won the championship in a car built by a French constructor and remains the only driver to win the world championship in a car built in France as well as in a car entered by a privateer team. Also that year, Stewart led at least one lap of every World Championship Grand Prix, and remains the only driver to achieve this feat.
