Revs Institute named Heritage Partner of F1 Exhibition, loans historic cars for North American premiere 

This partnership represents an exciting opportunity to engage passionate Formula 1® fans of all ages.

Continuing its mission to connect the past to the present through active matter, Revs Institute is proud to announce it is one of the official Heritage Partners of the Formula 1® Exhibition. In particular, two exemplary cars from the Miles Collier Collections will be loaned for the Exhibition’s North American debut in Toronto, Canada.

The all-new F1® Exhibition opens May 3, 2024, at the Lighthouse ArtSpace Toronto, one of the city’s leading exhibition locations. Boasting a wide range of exclusive contributions from the sport’s most legendary teams and personalities, highlights will include iconic Formula 1® race cars from different eras as well as never-seen-before artifacts and video material. The exhibition’s North American debut follows a critically acclaimed world-premiere run in Madrid, Spain, where it quickly became the country’s biggest-selling temporary show in 2023, followed by a record-breaking opening in Vienna, Austria, in February.

Visitors begin their 90-minute journey in Once Upon A Time In Formula 1®, which features a mix of previously-unseen photography, film and artifacts which transports fans through some of the sport’s most iconic and defining moments. Featured in this gallery will be two cars normally on display at Revs Institute: the 1962 B.R.M. P-578, known as “Old Faithful,” in which Graham Hill won his first championship; and the 1955 Lancia D50, a lovingly reconstructed example of the famed cars that delivered wins for the likes of Ascari.

Additionally, as a Heritage Partner, Revs Institute will provide supporting materials that contextualize the history of grand prix racing and bring the stories of the past to life. Visitors will experience a storytelling adventure across six specially designed rooms, spanning over 20,000 sq. ft. and in collaboration with award-winning curators, artists and filmmakers, the Exhibition offers unique insights into the extraordinary world of Formula 1®.

This partnership represents an exciting opportunity to engage passionate Formula 1® fans of all ages. We are excited to share the rich legacy of motorsport through the stories of these cars as part of the engaging interpretative experiences planned for the Exhibition. Most of all, we are excited to share our mission of preserving historic automobiles as ‘active matter’ with the next generation.
