Bonhams Motoring Magazine Winter Edition

COMING DOWN THE TRACK FOR WINTER SEASON 2017

• Craig Mallery, the newest recruit in the Bonhams Motorcycle Department, is to join the L.A. office. Craig has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all types of collector's motorcycle, and is a former amateur road racer in his native United States.

• The last sale of the year for the Motoring Department takes place on 6 December under the vaulted glass canopy of London's Olympia. It will feature some classic British marques, such as the 1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Series 1.

• On 8 February, Bonhams will return
to one of its most dramatic auction locations for the Grandes Marques au Grand Palais sale. Exquisite motor cars such as the 1958 Jaguar XK 150 3.4-litre 'S' (£150,000-200,000) will be arranged beneath the wrought-iron and glass domes in the centre of Paris.
