Memento Exclusives, the UK-based sports memorabilia specialist (owners of F1 Authentics), has revealed that it will have a presence at the Silverstone Museum, with memorabilia featuring on location. The memorabilia will be available for visitors to purchase.
The Silverstone Museum, which opened in 2019, takes visitors on a journey through the history of motorsport racing through a series of interactive displays. Its mission was to become an educational centre for British motorsport, whilst exhibiting and preserving artefacts, archives and collections of educational and historical value.
The museum and Memento Exclusives are well matched for a partnership because both share the same values. Memorabilia holds extreme sentimental value, keeping alive iconic moments and preserving pieces of history. Therefore, having a memorabilia presence within the museum, which allows fans to purchase and take home their own piece of F1 history, is an exciting development for both sides.
The Memento Exclusives shop at Silverstone Museum launched over the British Grand Prix weekend. Current memorabilia on offer at the museum includes replica race suits from Lewis Hamilton, George Russell and Lando Norris, race used bodywork, signed 1:2 scale helmets, bodywork accessories and more.
Barry Gough, Founder and CEO of Memento Exclusives and F1 Authentics, commented:
“This is an exciting partnership which has been some time in the making. Silverstone Museum is the perfect place and location to host a selection of our memorabilia, positioning our offering in front of the sport’s biggest fans. We hope that our presence at the museum will fulfil the needs of collectors, whilst also inspiring others to start their own collections. We look forward to working with Silverstone Museum to bring fans closer to F1.”
Matthew Phillips, Head of Retail at Silverstone Museum, commented:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Memento Exclusives. This partnership not only raises our game from a retail point of view, but the relationship allows us to add value to our customers, the fans of the sport, which is incredibly important to us. We are looking forward to the exciting opportunities this partnership brings and can’t wait to share the product with our guests.”
