Two Wheels for Life offers MotoGP™ fans the chance to meet heroes Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales

two wheels for life MotoGP teams are fundraising for Two Wheels for Life

It’s no secret that the official charity of MotoGP™, Two Wheels for Life, is famous for giving racing fans exclusive access to the MotoGP™ racing paddock through unique online auctions. But this year the auctions have gone up a gear with the support of Dorna.

Throughout the 2018 season, each racing team will be holding a fundraising auction for Two Wheels for Life, with prizes being given to the winners at one of the races. Repsol Honda was first up, with delighted auction winners meeting Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa at the following race in Jerez. Now it's the turn of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales and the Yamaha Movistar team.

Twelve auctions are being held in total and the Yamaha Movistar auction marks the halfway point. Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales have donated the prizes, which they’ll present to the winners at the German Grand Prix. The star prize is the opportunity to spend time with the two riders and the rest of the team over the race weekend at Sachsenring, plus access to team hospitality and a tour of the pit box.

The MotoGP™ riders are fully committed to the Two Wheels for Life cause. Handing over prizes in person means they can enjoy meeting the winners and really feel part of this exciting fundraising mission. Marc Marquez said: ‘its important for all the riders to be involved...we are really happy and really thankful to all the fans that bid.” 

Two Wheels for Life support programmes in sub-Saharan Africa that make sure health workers have reliable motorcycles and other vehicles so they can reach people in remote communities with the care they need.

Two Wheels co-founder and CEO Andrea Coleman said: “What we really want through these auctions is for people to be able to come and enjoy the paddock and enjoy the racing and feel part of what MotoGP™ really is. And we want them to contribute to Two Wheels for Life’s lifesaving work.”

Randy Mamola, MotoGP™ legend and Two Wheels for Life co-founder said: “I have to thank Dorna in the strongest possible way and the riders and the teams. We’re now reaching more than 15 million people; that’s something huge. This work is making a real difference to people’s lives.”

For anyone that misses out on the auction prizes, there will be other chances to meet the MotoGP™ riders. Two Wheels for Life will be launching a prize-draw next month with tickets for the British MotoGP™ weekend plus (sold out) Day of Champions paddock passes for the Thursday before the British race. And fans that come along to the Day of Champions will be guaranteed to see all of the riders as they take to the stage during the live auction for Two Wheels for Life.
