There's just one week left to make your bid for the nerve-shattering motorcycle ride of a lifetime. Charity Riders for Health is offering two people the chance to ride pillion with 13-time Grand Prix winner Randy Mamola on a Ducati 1198SP...
The experience is being auctioned on the charity's website and all proceeds will be put towards its lifesaving work in Africa.
Bidding closes at 10pm on Thursday, July 5.
The lucky winners will then be able to claim their prize at the Festival of 1000 Bikes at Mallory Park on Sunday, July 8.
Each passenger must undergo and pass a full medical check prior to their ride and must not exceed 14 stone in weight. They must also be over 18 and must provide their own helmet and a full set of leathers.
The Festival of 1000 Bikes, organised by the Vintage Motorcycle Club, begins on Friday, July 6, and ends on the Sunday evening. This year, Mamola will be headlining the ‘Past Masters’ feature alongside Kevin Schwantz. It will be the first time Schwantz has returned to Mallory Park since he raced there in 1986.
Also attending the weekend festival will be Mick Grant, Phil Read, Tepi Lansivouri, Frankie Chili, Carl Fogarty and many more past motorcycle racing stars who will take to the track and showcase their iconic machines.
Riders for Health is the official charity of MotoGP of the Federation International de Motocyclisme (FIM) and mobilises health workers with reliable motorcycles. Each health worker is trained to ride safely and carry out basic maintenance so that they can reach rural communities in Africa with health care on a regular basis. Thanks to worldwide support from the motorcycle community, Riders for Health is able to provide access to health care for 12 million men, women and children across Africa.
