"Dedikato" auction now live with exclusive MotoGP™ memorabilia

'Dedikato' auction now live with exclusive MotoGP™ memorabilia

In memory of the late Daijiro Kato, who passed away in Suzuka in 2003 riding for the Gresini team, the so-called ‘Dedikato’ auction has started on ebay featuring items donated by riders and teams, with proceeds going to the foundation Marco Simoncelli.

After the huge success on the Saturday evening at the Misano race, where more than 10 thousand people came to the Misano Arena 58 for the Dedikato "Sliding on dirt" even, which saw MotoGP™ stars head out in Ape cross racing cars, the ebay auction of all the items donated by the riders and teams has officially started.

The huge number of memorabilia donated to Misano Eventi is proof of the success of the new format of the show, which that allowed riders, technicians and journalists to get on the track in Ape cross racing cars.

The auction, which has already started, will close at the end of September, and all proceeds, just like from the sale of the official Dedikato t-shirts, made by Drudi Performance, will all go to the Marco Simoncelli Foundation.

Among the items up for auction, you can win the cult Fender Stratocaster guitar owned by Martin Finningan (leader of "The Rainband"), with the brand of 58 Sic and signed by many of the MotoGP riders including Kevin Schwantz.

Among the most popular items there are helmets. Michele Pirro donated the one he wore during the Italian Grand Prix to remember Marco Simoncelli, while the artist Andrea Criscione created a unique "Dedikato 74 - Arena 58" helmet.

Dani Pedrosa, Ben Spies, Álvaro Bautista, Alex de Angelis, Jorge Lorenzo, Mattia Pasini, Stefan Bradl, Ratthapark Wilairot and Gino Rea all offered their autographed race boots. There are also official t-shirts, gloves, team uniforms and also a coffee table "Mondini Design" signed by Niccolo 'Antonelli.

Bottles of Lambrusco di Sorbara "58 limited edition" from Donelli Vini, donated by team owner Fausto Gresini on Saturday evening, are also offered for the auction.

To participate in the auction just go on the site ebay.it and type the word "Dedikato."
