Riders For Health Auctioning MotoGP Paddock Passes All Season
If you can’t be out there racing, arguably the best seat at any MotoGP race is directly in the paddock. Riders for Health agree, and in anticipation of the 2014 season, RFH will be auctioning paddock passes for every race on the 2014 MotoGP calendar.
The passes, which are not on sale anywhere else, will be available to bid for in a series of eBay auctions. Two pairs of passes are up for grabs for each of the races on the MotoGP calendar, and this year Riders for Health are giving you two chances to bid. The first pairs will be auctioned at the beginning of the season, and the second pair will be auctioned before each race.
The first round of auctions will open on February 25th with the opportunity to bid on any of the 18 auctions for each of this season’s MotoGP races. For your chance to get a pair of these unique tickets visit the Riders for Health eBay shop at stores.ebay.co.uk/riders-for-
The full calendar of paddock pass auction dates for each of the MotoGP races is below, with the first set on sale for the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas from March 18th – 28th. Fans coming to Texas will also have the chance to meet the stars of MotoGP and ride their bike on the brand new Circuit of the Americas at Riders for Health’s Day of Stars event. For more information about Day of Stars and to buy tickets visit www.riders.org/day-of-stars.
Money raised from the auctions and from events like Day of Stars will help Riders for Health to mobilize even more health workers in Africa with reliable, well maintained motorcycles so they can reach rural communities and transform health care for 14 million people.
Please note: the auctions are for paddock passes only and do not include flights or accommodation. These paddock passes allow access to the race circuit and paddock for the whole race weekend, they do not give access to any hospitality suites or grandstands. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
