Zoom is an innovative charity project in aid of the renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
For the second year in a row, the drivers and team principals of every F1 team have been asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject. Images range from Fernando Alonso’s podium shot of the Monza crowd to Nico Rosberg at the wheel of a 1938 W154 and Bernie Ecclestone’s view from his window in Switzerland.
The images will be signed and auctioned by Coys at a star-studded event on Friday 24th January 2014 at London’s prestigious InterContinental Park Lane.
Also among the lots will be seven COOLPIX S9500 cameras provided for Zoom by Nikon. These have been signed by some of the sport’s greatest drivers. It is the first time that cameras signed by F1 world champions have been auctioned.
"The F1 Group has been supporting Great
Ormond Street Hospital for many years and we are proud to be able to help
with the tremendous work they do. Every year the hospital treats nearly 200,000
sick children and you are helping them keep it up. You are also getting a
glimpse into a side of F1 that isn’t shown on television and as you
will see, it isn’t all about fast cars and champagne."
Bernie Ecclestone, chief executive of the Formula One Group
