Coulthard Museum Faces Closure
A museum cataloguing former F1 driver David Coulthard’s career is set to close.
The Scottish driver who retired at the end of last season had a fruitful racing career eventually leading him to be in F1 for over 10 years and gain race wins with the McLaren team.
Four years ago Coulthard’s sister abandoned running the museum after she moved away from their birthplace of Twynholm. Afterwards, a Coulthard-Superfan – Wendy McKenzie – took over running the museum.
McKenzie told F1Live: “Short of a miracle, it will not be opening to the general public again.”
It is believed that diminishing interest in Coulthard, who is now an advisor to Red Bull Racing and a pundit of the BBC Sport F1 coverage is the reason for close.
