Nigel Mansell – Legacy of a Formula One Champion stamps from Jersey

October 16th, 2013

In celebration of a truly dramatic British sporting icon, Jersey Post issued six stamps and a Souvenir Sheet commemorating the 20th Anniversary of Nigel Mansell CBE being the only driver to simultaneously hold the Formula One World Championship and The IndyCar World Championship. The stamps depict key moments in his motor racing career, including a memorable incident with Brazilian three-time World Champion AyrtonSenna, personally chosen by Mansell himself.

Born 8 August 1953 in Upton-upon-Severn, Worcestershire, England, Mansell won 31 Grand Prix making him the most successful British Formula One driver of all time. He was awarded the CBE in 2012 and voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year in both 1986 and 1992.
