These cars have been raced by drivers such as Jacques Villeneuve, Jenson Button and Rubens Barichello. All race cars will be sold as rolling chassis, without engines or other ancillaries and they are expected to fetch £7,000-£22,000 each.

As well as race cars, memorabilia such as overalls, spares and merchandise will also be up for auction.

Nick Fry, CEO of Brawn GP said: “Brawn GP is extremely proud of our heritage with British American Tobacco and Honda, and we have inherited a vast collection of historic race cars and memorabilia from the team’s early years.

"We are delighted to give collectors and our fans the opportunity to share in our history and purchase some fantastic items, including actual race cars, through this unique sale."

The memorabilia will be sold by Bonhams auction house at an event held at the Silverstone Classic Historic Race Meeting on Saturday, 25 July.
