Ultimate MotoGP Package to be auctioned at Laguna USGP “Day of Stars”

Suzuki MotoGP team and Riders for Health offer full VIP package including two weekend paddock passes, plus chance to watch some sessions from team’s pit wall and pit box, plus join the team on the grid for Sunday’s start

The Suzuki MotoGP team and Riders for Health, the official charity of MotoGP, will auction an amazing MotoGP weekend package during the Day of Stars event at Laguna Seca on Thursday, July 22. This incredible VIP package is the most exclusive auction item yet to be offered at the charity's US event. It includes the chance to see inside a MotoGP garage and even to be on the grid before the race.

The winning bidder and a guest will receive paddock passes for the whole MotoGP weekend, plus the chance to watch some of Saturday's sessions from pit-wall and the team's pit-box—you** can’t** get closer to the action! Plus, one person from the winning couple will join the team on the grid for the start of the race on Sunday.

This really is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get a close-up view of a MotoGP team on a race weekend. In previous years, Suzuki MotoGP has helped to raise thousands of dollars for Riders for Health's lifesaving work, by donating a series of incredible items to the Day of Champions auction in the UK, and now they are offering MotoGP fans in the US a chance to be part of the action.

This amazing prize will be among the many items available for auction at Day of Stars, when the teams and fans of MotoGP come together to raise money for Riders for Health's work in Africa. The funds will be used to mobilize health workers in Africa, training them in motorcycle riding and maintenance, so they can reach remote villages with regular, reliable health care.

The auction, which is free and open to the public, begins at 4:00 pm and is located at the Turn Four of the Mazda Raceway. Other auction items will include autographed MotoGP memorabilia and VIP hospitality suite tickets to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.
Hosted by Riders co-founder and MotoGP legend, Randy Mamola, the Day of Stars will offer an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at MotoGP racing. This all-day event takes place on Thursday, July 22, beginning at 8:00 am at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway.

Limited tickets are available by calling 312-373-1447 or go to Mazda Raceway's website at www.mazdaraceway.com. A ticket to 'Day of Stars' is $500 per person, of which $375 is a tax deductible donation to Riders for Health II, the U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization supporting the UK based Riders for Health.
