MotoGP fans will be delighted to hear that the ever popular pre-event held at Silverstone is set to go ahead this year, despite the charity Riders for Health closing their UK offices to concentrate on their African projects.
The news that the UK projects were set to be stopped came earlier this week, as the auction planned at Donington Park’s World SBK round was cancelled.
The now traditional charity day held before the British GP will still include the auction, access to the paddock as well as on stage interviews to include the riders and teams. Perhaps most importantly all profit will continue to fund ongoing support programs in Africa.
Andrea Coleman, founder of the event explained: “There have been some delays in putting tickets on sale for the event but with the support of MotoGP™ and the Circuit of Wales we have been able to overcome the administrative difficulties of the past few months and the money raised will, once again, be using two wheels to save lives in Africa.”
Tickets will go on sale on the Silverstone website very soon so keep an eye out.
