Capirossi auctions helmet for Clinica Mobile

A signed Loris Capirossi helmet is to be auctioned on Ebay in order to raise funds for the Clinica Mobile, the non-profit making organisation which ensures medical support for the competitors and all the personnel working at every event of the MotoGP World Championship.

The Clinica Mobile has been providing assistance on the tracks throughout for the past three decades. Dr Claudio Costa started the service for riders back in 1972 when he was called upon by his father to improve the medical facilities at the Imola circuit in Italy.

The work of Dr Costa and his team was recently honoured as he received an academic honorific degree, an Honoris Causa, at a convention in Italy. The Clinica Mobile was again recognised during last week's Bologna Motorshow.
