Adrian Newey is the man who is responsible for the mechanical and aerodynamic design of the Red Bull Formula 1 team. He is very successful and has helped the team in 2010 and 2011 win.
In his scarce free time, he is also an avid racer. He does not use modern cars for that, but fast classic cars. It includes a Ford GT 40 and a lightweight Jaguar E type. He regularly wins races with the E type. During the last edition of the Goodwood revival, I had a photo of Adrian with his E type signed by him. This signed magnification (20 × 30) will be auctioned on 7 October after the ZZF rally. The proceeds are intended for the Rare Diseases Fund Foundation. It is a definite opportunity to come up with a unique and very special photo! A number of places are also available for this well-maintained rally. This year the rally starts at the Binnenhof and Mark Rutte and Jan Peter Balkenende will participate. For more information, go to www.zzf.nl or call Ilse, the director of the ZZF foundation on 070-3387027
