Helen Bashford-Malkie

The company which runs classic car auctions in Buxton has signed ex-racer Helen Bashford-Malkie as brand ambassador.

Helen has 42 years’ experience in the Automotive and Motorsport Industry, and her name is synonymous with historic motor racing in particular.

Helen said: “When Simon Hope asked me to be an Ambassador for H&H Classics and officially represent the Auction House and their interests I was delighted and excited to accept. I am a ‘Petrol Head’ and have loved classic cars right from my first MG YA bought as an everyday car when I was 18 through to modern classics such as Aston Martin and Audi. At Le Mans Classic 2018 I was inspired by the beautiful engineering of the pre-War cars too. I look forward to being part of such a successful worldwide team at H&H and building on their continued success for an exciting future.”

Helen has had a long and distinguished career at the wheel of many race cars, competing as an international racing driver from 1979 to 2015 and is the first and only woman on the podium in an FIA Formula 1 race.

H&H’s Simon Hope said: “During Helen’s twenty-plus years racing she has driven every type of car including Formula One and also headed up two famous racing marques in the UK. We are honoured to have her join us. Her reputation and networks within the world of motorsport and the wider automotive world will be of great significance to growing the H&H brand.”
