Barons offering free entry and consignment for October auction
Both sellers consigning their cars and buyers registering to bid can enter the British auctioneer's upcoming 20th anniversary sale for free
Barons auctioneers is celebrating its 20th anniversary by offering free entry to bidders and sellers for its Autumn Classic sale at Sandown Park racecourse on October 27. Cars consigned to sale are usually charged £120, while bidders are normally asked to hand over £15 for access to the sale's catalogue, but both will be waived for their October auction.
The first Barons sale took place on September 28 1998 and was launched by Formula 1 driver and television presenter Tiff Needell. A Rover was the first lot to go under the hammer, with the sale also including a charity lot sold on behalf of BEN, a charity that supports those involved in the automotive industry and their families.

Sandown Park has been the most frequent host venue in Barons' 163 sale history, primarily down to its proximity to Heathrow Airport, although there has also been sales in other venues in the UK, such as the Donington Park, and overseas.
One of the most notable sales took place at Sandown in 2010, when a 'lost' 1958 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk3 drophead rolling restoration sold for over £206,000. The car previously belonged to David Brown, previously owner of Aston Martin, and spent three decades under a tarpaulin before appearing at Sandown.
In 2015 Barons' auction record was broken when a restoration project sold for £726,000. The record was broken again shortly after by a 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk1 Volante Vantage, in unrestored original condition. It sold for £781,000. Cars once owned by Peter Sellers, Frank Sinatra and Stanley Kubrick have also been sold by Barons.
As well as the location of Sandown, another recurring theme on the Barons calendar has been a Jaguar Heritage auction, stemming from the fact that the founders of the auctioneers were Jaguar experts.
