Schumacher collection to go on display
26 August 2017 – A collection housing Formula 1 cars and memorabilia from Michael Schumacher's distinguished career will go on display in Cologne from next Spring.
Schumacher is the most successful Formula 1 driver in history, having taken 91 Grands Prix and seven world titles across a two-decade spell in the sport.
Schumacher has not been seen in public since he sustained severe head injuries in a skiing accident in 2013, but his legacy will be marked with a collection, which opens next year.
The display will be housed within the new Motorworld Köln Rheinland, located at the former airport at Butzweilerhof.
Schumacher's collection will span his entire career, with cars from his time in Formula Konig, through to Formula 3 and Formula 1, with title-winning machines set to be on show.
Trophies, memorabilia and helmets will also be on display.
"Everybody who associates fun and nostalgic feelings with Michael's incomparable career will find a starting point here with one of the world's most important motor sport collections," commented Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm.
"Michael's career spans far in excess of two decades, and so these gems relate a large piece of the history of mobility.
"Motorworld with its automotive expertise and passion is the perfect partner and – this was especially important to Michael's family – Butzweilerhof is located very near to his home town of Kerpen."
