One of the world’s most notable motor sport collections will be on display as a permanent exhibition at MOTORWORLD Köln – Rheinland: the private collection of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher.
The Michael Schumacher Private Collection will open its doors to visitors for the first time, 16 June 2018. Showcasing Michael’s own collection of race cars, helmets, trophies and other memorabilia from his record breaking career, access is provided as a thank you gesture to fans from the Schumacher family.
Visitors will be able to admire go-karts from his early days, sports cars, trophies, unique memorabilia, and naturally most of the F1 cars with which he won seven world championships. The Michael Schumacher Private Collection will thus find a perfect home in two senses of the word.
Not only will MOTORWORLD Köln – Rheinland offer a stylish stage, but it is also very close to Schumacher’s home town of Kerpen. And free admission!
Widely regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers ever, and regarded by some as the greatest of all time, Schumacher is the only driver in history to win seven Formula One World Championships, five of which he won consecutively. The most successful driver in the history of the sport, Schumacher holds the records for the most World Championship titles (7), the most Grand Prix wins (91), the most fastest laps (77) and the most races won in a single season (13), and according to the official Formula One website (Formula1.com), Schumacher was “statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen” at the time of his retirement from the sport.
In December 2013, Schumacher suffered a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident. He was placed in a medically induced coma for six months until 16 June 2014. He left the hospital in Grenoble for further rehabilitation at the University Hospital of Lausanne. On 9 September 2014, Schumacher was relocated to his home where he continues to receive medical treatment and rehabilitation privately.
