Ahead of the 2020 season opener at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit (Feb 28 – Mar 1), the WSB paddock has united to stage a charity auction in aid of the victims of the recent Australian bush fires.
The funds raised will go to BlazeAid, a volunteer-based set-up working alongside rural families and individuals impacted by the fires and floods.
The WSB auction is organised through CharityStars and will see an incredible selection of rider and team merchandise and memorabilia – as well as some awesome fan experiences – go under the hammer.
The Championship, riders and teams have come together during the recent tests at Jerez and Portimao to source their own gear, with exclusive helmets, leathers, gloves and various other ‘money-can’t-buy’ team apparel clothing set to get auctioned.
Newcomer Scott Redding is putting up his leathers from testing, Chaz Davies has donated a helmet and Toprak Razgatlioglu is throwing in gloves and visor. Reigning Champion Jonathan Rea has also donated gloves and boots, with multiple race winner Michael van der Mark putting in some knee sliders, a visor and boots. A BMW Motorrad
