Michael Schumacher's personal collection of Formula One memorabilia from his career will go on display. His family has graciously donated the racing legend’s own collection of motorsport memorabilia for fans to enjoy.
The collection, considered one of the world’s most significant for motorsport, will go on permanent display at the new Motorworld car mecca being built in Cologne, Germany, a short drive from Schumacher’s home town of Kerpen.
The exhibits have not been publicly displayed before, so this announcement is a breakthrough for the fans of the driver affectionately called Schuey by F1 fans and commentators.
Schumacher’s collection includes karts from his early racing days, some of his private sports cars, trophies, photos and other unique memorabilia, and, of course, most of the Formula One race cars in which he won his record seven world championships—including the 1994 Benetton B194 that he drove to his first title.
"It is the heart's desire of Michael's family that all interested fans should get to see Michael's collection without having to pay an admission charge," Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm said. "It will enable them to revel in memories and bring those great times back to life again.
