Register for your chance to bid on Lorenzo’s bike

Thursday, 17 November 2011

The Yamaha R1 which the Spaniard rode on a parade lap at the 2010 Isle of Man TT is being put up for auction, with proceeds helping MotoGP’s official charity Riders for Health.

One visitor at this year’s Motorcycle Live could become the proud owner of the Yamaha R1 machine ridden by Jorge Lorenzo during his parade lap at the 2010 Isle of Man TT. The bike was recently ridden from the UK to Spain by the BBC’s Matt Roberts as part of the Viva Valencia! Adventure and has also been signed by Lorenzo himself.

This fantastic bike will be up for grabs in the Riders for Health auction supported by Arai at Motorcycle Live (NEC, Birmingham) on Sunday 20th November at 12.30pm.

Riders for Health are asking all those who would like to bid on this bike to register their details prior to the auction. To download an order visit www.riders.org. Remember to bring your form with you to the NEC. You will also be able to pick up registration forms at the show from Riders for Health on stand G468.

For those who will not be at the show on Sunday, but who would still like to bid, Riders for Health will be making it possible to bid by telephone. To register your interest, email rfh@riders.org. Riders for Health will then email you with the information and a registration form. For more information, please call the Riders for Health office on +44 (0)1604 889 570.

The Yamaha YZE-R1 is worth £12,000, even without its famous history, or the completely unique paintwork. For the full specifications of this motorcycle, visit www.riders.org to download an information sheet.

Along with the chance to own a piece of two-wheel history, Viva Valencia! supporter, Carole Nash, has donated a voucher worth £500 for the new owner to use on insuring this exclusive machine.

The bike will be one of the star lots at the Arai auction, at Motorcycle Live on Sunday 20th November. All the proceeds from the sale of the incredible items available at the auction will go to supporting Riders for Health’s work in Africa.

Riders for Health makes sure that millions of people in rural communities in Africa have the health care they need by managing and maintaining reliable vehicles for health workers. With a reliable motorcycle a health worker can reach even the most remote communities with regular, lifesaving health care.
