F1 Parts

Postby rozer »

I am looking to get an interesting piece of an f1 car to add to the one i have already and just wanted to know if anyone knows of good websites they have used.
or even better how they get hold of them. And also if there is anyway to tempt a team to give me a little piece haha.

Worth keeping an eye out for auctions too. Some older F1 stuff goes under the hammer and I know there was a big auction of Super Aguri stuff when they ended their run in F1 :(

I wonder if a little bribing of track clean up crews would net you some bits of broken up carbon fiber front wings. Something with a clear logo on it would be a cool keepsake.

Quick search of eBay yields only one thing that could easily be just a reproduction. Surprising actually.

So maybe there's a really tight grip by the teams to gather up every bit of car part after an incident to limit espionage or black market selling?

Are the things that are sold checked by employees of eBay?

I have not personaly bought anything off Ebay but have been told the best thing to do is check a sellers ratings and feedback. I believe Ebay has some sort of safety net for both the buyers and sellers?

There are "some" protections but like everything in life, it's buyer beware. But like Tex says just research the seller, look at their rating, look at feedback from other users and look at what they're selling and the prices being sold AND the shipping charges. I've been buying and selling without a single issue off of eBay since 2000. In that time though, I've come across hundred of things that were obvious headaches in the making if you bought it.

Hey Guys,

Just joined the forum.
when buying of ebay always check the sellers rating and reviews.

I remember the marshalls at some races would agree that whoever was brave enough to collect the piece of a crash, even if the wreckage had been cleared could keep it as a trophy
