Ex-Formula One team owner Eddie Jordan is to host this Friday’s inaugural Zoom VIP reception and auction in London to help raise funds for the renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSHCC).

Zoom is an innovative new project which involves leading names from the world of F1 racing putting their photography skills to the test. The drivers and team principals of every F1 team were asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject - and the incredible range of images received demonstrates the extraordinary personalities and passions unique to the sport.

“This is an event, the type of which has not been seen before,” said Jordan. “I am delighted to be playing a part in hosting this auction, and have no doubt that the range of photographs on display will help raise money for a very worthwhile cause.”

The collection of images brings new insight into the world of F1 racing by offering a glimpse of the characters away from the race track. Leading names such as Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Damon Hill have all contributed.

At Friday’s auction, F1 enthusiasts will have a chance to bid for this extraordinary collection of over 50 signed and framed photographs, which includes Lewis Hamilton’s ‘driver’s eye’ view from the cockpit of his car at the pits at Spa-Francorchamps, Sebastian Vettel’s favourite Alpine view and Bruno Senna’s beach paradise.

“The auction is a super idea,” said Ecclestone. “It will hopefully raise a lot of money for the hospital and the teams will get coverage.”

Every image has been signed by the contributor and will be auctioned off by renowned motorsport auction specialists, Coys.
