Yamaha Auctioning Edwards MotoGP Gear For Charity

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., is pleased to announce a unique opportunity to bid on a historic set of road racing leathers, boots, gloves, and helmet as worn by NGM Forward Racing star Colin Edwards during this, his final season in MotoGP. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Feed the Children, which is Yamaha Motor Corporation's official corporate charity.

“As most people know, this is Colin’s final year in MotoGP, and the upcoming Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix will be the ‘Texas Tornado’s’ final MotoGP race in the U.S. So, this set of racing gear is extra-special, and we’re grateful to Colin for donating it to benefit Feed the Children,” commented Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications for Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. “Colin has continued to give back to both his fans and to Yamaha over his nearly 25 years of road racing, and we could not be more proud to have him as part of the Yamaha family.”

In addition to Colin’s racing gear, the winning bidder will receive a pair of weekend 3-day general admission passes, including paddock access, to the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, August 8-10 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, along with hotel accommodations for the entire race weekend (Friday and Saturday night).

See Colin Live On Stage Saturday Aug. 9

Colin will be live on the center stage at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP Saturday evening, August 9 from 5:30 to 6:00 PM CST, and he’ll have his T-shirt cannon primed and ready for the fans, and other riders will be there to bid him farewell so don’t miss it!

As an added bonus, the winning bidder of the auction will be invited up on stage Saturday evening where Colin will present his personally autographed racing gear to the lucky fan who wins the auction.

The auction is live on eBay beginning today and will continue through this Friday, August 1.
