Riders for Health launch online British MotoGP™ auction

Riders for Health launch online British MotoGP™ auction

MotoGP™ official charity Riders for Health is launching an online auction of exclusive memorabilia and experiences.

The online auction will run from 26th August throughout the British MotoGP weekend, giving you the chance to win signed memorabilia, photographs and paintings from some of your favourite motorcycle racers.

To place a bid on any of the items, visit www.ridersauction.org. The auction ends at 4pm on Sunday 30th August.

To make it as easy as possible for race-goers to join in with the online auction, bidders will be kept up-to-date on the progress of their items via text message – so they can bid for riders’ items as they watch them compete in this weekend’s racing.

Some of the fantastic auction items include signed Valentino Rossi drawings and paintings, one of Mick Doohan’s race gloves, a special edition signed Dani Pedrosa t-shirt and a chance to ride the Ducati Desmosedici Two-Seater bike around the Silverstone circuit on the Sunday of the 2015 British MotoGP weekend.

Each day leading up to the big race on Sunday, Riders for Health will be adding exciting new items to the online auction.

Riders for Health’s Fundraising and Communications Director, Justine Williams said: “This year is our 25 year at the British MotoGP, and we wanted to be able to give fans that can’t make it to our annual Day of Champions live auction the chance to own their own pieces of motorcycling history. It’s a great opportunity for as many fans as possible to get involved and support Riders for Health.”

Riders for Health will be kicking-off the British MotoGP weekend with their annual fundraising event, Day of Champions, on Thursday 27th August. Around 4,000 MotoGP fans are expected to attend the event, with the chance to visit the MotoGP paddock and pit-lane, see live music, entertainment and motorcycle stunt shows, as well as seeing the stars of MotoGP in the annual Day of Champions auction. 

Tickets for Day of Champions are available on the day from car park 49 at the Silverstone circuit. Tickets cost £18 for adults and are free for children aged 15 and under. 

All of the money raised from Day of Champions and the British MotoGP online auction will help Riders for Health ensure health workers in Africa have access to reliable, well maintained motorcycles and ambulance so that they can continue to transform health care for 21.5 million people.
