UK Premiere of the ROFGO Gulf Collection by Duncan Hamilton
Guests at this year's Salon Privé were the first in the UK to see the spectacular ROFGO Gulf Collection by Adrian Hamilton with 18 of the 22 cars openly displayed on the lawns of Syon House.
The ROFGO Gulf Collection by Duncan Hamilton is surely the most remarkable accumulation of globally-significant racing cars to be assembled for many years. It has been created by Duncan Hamilton Co.'s Chairman, Adrian Hamilton, to satisfy the passion and vision of one of his private clients, and comprises no less than 22 of the most prominent sports racers and single-seaters ever to compete in the legendary colours of Gulf Oil.
Making the most of his 45 years handling the purchase and sale of some of the world's finest historic road and competition machines, Adrian Hamilton has managed to track down and acquire the cars in just three years - itself a remarkable feat. Ranging in age from 1967 to 2010, they include examples of some of the greatest racing machines ever produced; many of which were campaigned by legends of the sport. All were sponsored by one of motor racing's longest-standing and loyal supporters - Gulf Oil; the unmistakable livery of which is guaranteed to set pulses racing and rekindle memories of titanic duels at Le Mans, Spa Francorchamps, Daytona etc.
