MotoGP: Two Wheels for Life reveal Day of Champions auction lots
MotoGP’s official charity Two Wheels for Life have revealed some of the amazing lots they have up for auction at the highlight of their annual fundraising, next Thursday’s auction at the Day of Champions event at Silverstone.
Normally attended by the top names in MotoGP, with Valentino Rossi most famously auctioning off the literal shirt off his back numerous times in recent years, the day raises tens of thousands of pounds for Riders for Health, the African charity that provides medics with motorbikes to reach rural areas.
Co-founder of Two Wheels for Life, Andrea Coleman, says “The money that we raise in this auction will make an enormous difference to the work we support, helping millions of people in remote communities in Africa receive the health care they need. I want to say a huge thank you to all of the teams and riders for donating such fantastic items, and also to the fans who help us raise so much money.”

Top of the list on this year’s selection of lots is a brand new Yamaha R125, donated by CMC Motorcycles and painted in a one-off custom paint job combining the looks of the factory Movistar Yamaha with those of satellite team Monster Yamaha Tech 3.
There’ll also be the chance to bid on the ultimate two-wheeled experience, a pillion lap of the Silverstone circuit on Ducati’s two-seater MotoGP machine in the hands of Randy Mamola.
There’ll also be a selection of grid and paddock passes for the British Grand Prix, money can’t buy memorabilia, and a trip to Colin Edwards’ Texas Tornado Boot Camp on offer.
To make sure that you have a chance to win one of these amazing auction lots, make sure that you come along on the day. Tickets for the Entertainment Zone are £15 pre-booked (£18 on the day) which includes access to the Two Wheels for Life charity auction.
