Bid on a Signed Marquez guitar at Day of Champions

Bid on a Signed Marquez guitar at Day of Champions

MotoGP™ Fans are being given the chance to bid for a unique custom-made electric guitar, signed by MotoGP™ World Champion, Marc Marquez.

The guitar, which is styled in Repsol Honda colours and was handmade and donated by professional guitar manufacturer David Aura, will be auctioned by Marquez to raise money for the life-saving work of Riders for Health.

The auction will take place ahead of the British MotoGP™ weekend on Thursday 27th August at Silverstone Circuit as part of Riders for Health’s Day of Champions event.

The winning bidder will take home a one-of-a-kind instrument with a hand-carved basswood body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and quality Seymour Duncan pickups (bridge: SHR1B Hot Rails, neck: STR1 Vintage Rhythm).

Day of Champions is Riders for Health’s annual fundraising event and one of the highlights of the MotoGP™ calendar. Tickets for the entertainment zone, which includes access to the auction, live music, quizzes and stunt displays, cost just £15 and are free for children under 15.

Many more amazing items will also be auctioned at the event, with each of the stars of the MotoGP™ championship taking to the stage to auction their own memorabilia and experiences.

Other items up for grabs this year include backstage meet-and-greets with riders, Dani Pedrosa’s own race leathers, Bradley Smith’s race boots, exclusive grid passes for the British MotoGP™ and a totally unique painting by MotoGP™ star Kenny Roberts, created especially for Day of Champions.
