I'm trying to get some ideas for how to decorate my new office/man cave. I want it to be motorsport themed, Sportscar racing in particular, but I want it to be fairly classy at the same time.

I have a couple of art prints and I was given a cut out Le Mans track sculpture for Christmas. I'd be interested to see what suggestions fellow motorsport enthusiasts might have.

I did some work experience at LAT once. The archives were fascinating to look through.

For what it's worth when we get round to ours it will have the Autosport table Centres we have on display and a few nice 1/18th models. On the walls will be a couple of LE prints i have picked up over the years and some posters from LM.

I am also planning on putting all my old season/team/official/media passes together from over the years in some sort of artistic display - have a few going back as far as the old Rover 220 Turbo days! Slightly annoyed that my old LM car passes for P6 have degraded though - damn those counter forgery inks!

Not sure I'll be able to match you for interesting memorabilia Rude-Boy but I'll try. I might be up for a spot of bin diving if I see you at LM this year! Olly.

I remember seeing a memorabilia shop selling a table which was basically a glass top on a used F1 wheel - actually looked pretty cool, although I did wonder if it would smell a bit rubbery to have in the house.

Some of the classic circuits like Le Mans and Spa in cut out form would be a nice touch I think.

My living room in the house has Knockhill, Croft and Oulton
