Written Submissions:

As this is such an iconic collection I would expect that anyone who shares my pride in our nation would be delighted to have on display something which would promote appreciation of our determination, ability and pride in our nation.

These are a national treasure and as such should be saved for the nation.

Do you think that part of the Ecurie Ecosse collection should be saved for Scotland?

Location is Stonehaven, Scotland - not Macao!!!

The range of cars, together with the team transporter, represent an irreplaceable able piece of Motorsport history, and must be retained in the UK as part of Scottish heritage.

this collection is part of scotlands motoring history when the minows took on the big boys and beat them at there own game, some of the cars have been sold in the past and gone from us, surely this collection should stay here to inspire future motor sport enterprise.
