The Dainese D-Air Racing suit worn by Valentino Rossi during the Italian Grand Prix weekend went up for auction on Ebay yesterday at 8:00 a.m. EST. The lucky buyer will receive the authentic suit delivered to his/her place inside a special display case, autographed by the nine-time World Champion.
Lining up at the Mugello Circuit with the hashtag #thisforSIC58 sewn on to the back, Valentino chose his own particular way of showing support to the Foundation dedicated to his friend Marco Simoncelli. By purchasing the Dainese suit of the Tavullia champion, the highest bidder will make a contribution to the Santa Marta project, a day center for disabled people that the organization is building near Coriano, Marco’s hometown.
#thisforSIC58 is the official hashtag created by Dainese to commemorate Marco Simoncelli and to promote the projects of solidarity and cooperation that the Foundation is supporting. The original Valentino Rossi suit is just one out of many Dainese products worn by World Championship riders that will be available on the new dainese.com website.
