Items from many of the top riders will be available, raising funds for Two Wheels, the official charity of MotoGP™, who ensure life-saving care reaches communities across Africa.
The 2020 MotoGP™ World Championship was exciting but very different from any other year, as COVID-19 restrictions prohibited spectators and fans from entering most circuits. Two Wheels for Life couldn’t run their Day of Champions fundraising event for the first time in 31 years, and other fundraising activities such as giving fans unique, trackside opportunities also had to be cancelled.
But while fundraising was hard hit, rural communities in African countries continued to need – even more desperately – healthcare and services that can only reach them by motorcycle.
Riders, teams and Dorna Sports are lending a hand this festive season in order to ensure Two Wheels important work across Africa continues. They have provided incredible items for the MotoGP™ Stars Holiday Auction 2020 such as fantastic one-off pieces including signed gloves by 2020 MotoGP™ World Champion Joan Mir, signed knee sliders by Valentino Rossi and boots and gloves signed by Andrea Dovizioso, Maverick Viñales, Danilo Petrucci, Alex Rins and more.
New unique items are being added all the time, and today will mark the launch of all 66 signed boards featured on MotoGP’s social media challenges throughout the 2020 season!
How it works
Items will be added throughout December with each item available for bidding for a three week period.
The first auction items will end on Sunday 13th December at 20.00hrs GMT, but other auction items will continue to run throughout the Christmas break with the bidding on the final items ending on January 3rd at 20.00hrs GMT.
