The Australian Grand Prix Corporation decided to auction a passenger ride in the famous two-seater F1 car to raise funds for victims of the Queensland floods, an act of generosity that has earned support from former World Champion (and Queensland resident) Alan Jones in our recent exclusive interview with him.
The leading bid currently sits at AU$19,100 for this ‘Money Can’t Buy Because It’s So Freaking Awesome’ opportunity, with the lucky person winning a ride in the two-seater plus two four-day grandstand tickets to the Australian Grand Prix.
The two-seater is powered by a 700bhp-plus V10 racing engine and features a similar chassis construction, suspension, brakes and tyres as the cars competing in this year’s championship.
Strict eligibility conditions apply if you’re interested in bidding (for example, passenger height and weight), and you can check out the full details at the AGPC website.
Jones is also donating 50% of any proceeds he raises through the sale of his own motorsport memorabilia, and you can find out more by clicking on the link to The Motorsport Shop below.
