Michael Schumacher's private collection of racing memorabilia, is to go on view to the public from the end of next year. The public will be able to view the collection for free.
The memorabilia, most of which hasn't been seen before will be displayed in a permanent exhibition at the new Motorworld Koln-Rheinland Classic Car Center in Cologne, Germany, which is around 25 kilometres away from Schumacher's hometown of Kerpen.
Schumacher won 91 Formula 1 races and obtained 69 pole positions in his 19-year career in the fastest motorsport on four wheels, before he finally hung up his racing suit for good at the end of the 2012 season.
Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm said, "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. It will enable them to revel in memories and bring those great times back to life again."
"The location's proximity to Kerpen, and the passion for motoring that it radiates, were two other excellent reasons for this collaboration."
Along with Schumacher's cars and memorabilia, the Motorworld classic car centre will also exhibit the Benetton B194 (seen above) from Schumacher's first world championship-winning season in 1994, in the collection. The museum has owned the Benetton since 2013.
Meanwhile, the seven time world champion is still recuperating from his injuries suffered in a skiing accident that took place in 2013.
We at DriveSpark like every one of Schumacher's fans hope to see the legend recover as soon as humanly possible.
