Twelve very special photographs, capturing some of the finest racing action from the 2014 season across MotoGP, World Superbikes, British Superbikes and the Isle of Man TT will be sold at a charity auction on Sunday 23 November at Motorcycle Live, Birmingham NEC.
The auction will raise money for Riders for Health – the official charity of MotoGP.
Most of the images are signed by the rider yet all are professionally mounted on 1100mm X 750mm boards.
The three MotoGP images are World Champion Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi and Scott Redding and these come with an extra benefit because the winning bidders of these images will also win two tickets to Riders for Health’s 2015 Day of Champions event, and have the chance to get their images signed in person by the riders.
The auction will be hosted by popular motorsports commentator Toby Moody, and will take place from 12.30-13.00 on Sunday 23 November on the Black Horse Stage at Motorcycle Live. TT stars John McGuinness, Michael Dunlop and Bruce Anstey, with 42 TT wins between them, will all be attending the auction.
The images will be displayed on the Riders for Health stand in Hall 2 and for your chance to bid on any you must be going to Motorcycle Live. Tickets are available via the website, www.motorcyclelive.co.uk.
All of the money raised at this year’s auction will be matched by the UK government, as part of a new Riders for Health appeal. Until 28th November, every UK donation made to Riders for Health will be doubled by the UK government.
The images have been donated by David Goldman (Gold & Goose), Graeme Brown (GeeBee Images), James Wright (Double Red Photographic) and Stephen Davison (Pacemaker Press) and the auction is sponsored by Bennetts Insurance.
