The Two Wheels for Life charity auction is a permanent fixture on Thursday at Silverstone. Riders offer their memorabilia to raise funds for Africa. Everyone joins in, Valentino included.
This evening the Doctor took to the stage with a signed replica of his helmet, but the presenter pointed out that, being new, it couldn't really be considered one of 'his' helmets. Rossi responded by putting the helmet on: "now you can say it's mine”.
Valentino wore the helmet until it sold, for the impressive sum of 7000 pounds.
The lucky buyer therefore takes home... a guaranteed used item.
