Butlins Auction success
The live auction held as part of the www.motorcyclenews.com site users meet at the 50th Anniversary Butlins event raised almost £400 for chairty Riders for Health.
Regular forum poster and huge Rossi fan SpeedyRS was determined not to miss out on the signed copy of the Rossi autobiography, What If I Had Never Tried It. Due to delays, she had to rush off, but left a proxy bid for the book, to join signed photographs and pictures in her home. And at £275 she was able to take the story of the MotoGP legend home with her.
Also on offer was a signed photograph of World Superbike star James Toseland, which was eventually won by Lee Yeardley from Rotherham. He paid just £100 for the signed picture before wondering how it would fit in his rucksack on the way home!
