Such a shame, I hope the collection will be rehoused elsewhere en bloc, e.g. Beaulieu, rather than auctioned off.
I don't necessarily agree, it could be better for individual cars to go to owners who will appreciate and use them.
For instance, David Purley's LEC Refrigeration F1 car was liberated from the collection a few years ago and now competes at historic events. I think most people would much prefer to see (hear and smell) cars like that on the track than sitting static in a shed.
