Motorcyclist reports that if you have a bunch of extra cash, you can now try and snag one of 100 exclusive tickets to Riders for Health Day. The event takes place Thursday, July 19, the day before the Laguna Seca MotoGP action kicks off.
For $500, ticket holders get some nice VIP treatment — a motorcycle tour, access to the MotoGP paddock, three parade laps around the track, an auction of racing memoribilia and the opportunity to meet some current and former racing legends.
I think this is a really fantastic event and I’m a big fan of Riders for Health. Riders provides healthcare workers in Africa with motorcycles and other vehicles and helps create the infrastructure needed to properly maintain them, allowing medical care to be delivered to remoted villages. That’s pretty cool.
