Nigel Mansell prototype character jug modeled by Geof Blower and produced by Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in 1992. Nigel Ernest James Mansell (1953 - ) is a British retired racing driver who won both the Formula One World Championship (1992) and the CART Indy Car World Series (1993). Mansell was the reigning F1 champion when he moved over to CART, becoming the first person to win the CART title in his debut season, and making him the only person to hold both the World Drivers' Championship and the American open-wheel National Championship simultaneously. He has competed in additional sports car races with his sons Leo and Greg, including the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans, and was inducted to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2005. An open bottle of champagne and checkered flag form the handle of the jug.
