Looks like a Vanson jacket to me, but by validity do you mean if it was team used? Was it sold to you as such? As far as I know it would be a promo item, I have never seen teams wear leathers in the pits, so even if it was team issued perhaps it wouldn't have seen any action most likely.
There are sports memorabilia people who know this stuff inside and out, find one specific to racing, probably email one in the UK for best results.
