Have A Ball For Tsunami Relief
In Association With Adam Sharpe & Binnie Motorsports
seen the power of e-bay with the auction of Nic Minassian’s
helmet, in aid of the victims in Asia.
Thanks to Adam
Sharpe (left) and Bill Binnie, here’s an opportunity to bid
for something rather different.
At Le Mans 2004, dsc’s
Graham Goodwin tracked down many of the top drivers, who signed
a football – the idea being that the ball would be presented
to Adam Sharpe who, in 2004, was the youngest ever British Le Mans
finisher, at just 19 years of age. Six months on the group at Adam
Sharpe Motorsport feels it to be an opportune time for this prized
article to be sold in aid of a charitable cause, the Tsunami Disaster
Fund. That task is now with us, but there’s more to this item
than a football.
Binnie Motorsports and
Adam Sharpe Motorsport have agreed to add to the ‘pot’
by offering access to Adam Sharpe, the new Lola team and all of
their ‘off the race track’ activities, at all of the
LMES events, and Le Mans (entry acceptance permitting).
So the e-bay ‘lot’
is the signed football, plus a close association with this new prototype
team, at all the major European ACO-regs. events in 2005. Enjoy
the team’s hospitality and company at Spa, the Nurburgring,
Monza and Silverstone (or as many as can be attended), plus Le Mans.
Meet the drivers, meet the crew, and really feel part of a top-line
team as they tackle the challenges of endurance racing in 2005.
This is a once only offer
– with the top bid going to a very good cause.
This offer was
launched at the Autosport Show this week – with the Binnie
/ Sharpe pair being interviewed on stage by John Hindhaugh, in the
company of Lola’s Martin Birrane (below).
The ball was signed by
- all the Audi Sport UK / Team Veloqx drivers
- Tom Kristensen, Seiji Ara and Dindo Capello
- all the TVR drivers
- all the Morgan drivers
- all the Rollcentre drivers
- all the PK Sport drivers.
