TRADE DONATIONS WELCOME FOR TT HELICOPTOR FUND
January 20 2006.


Haslemere Motorcycles is running a charity auction in aid of the Rob Vine fund on the 1st of April this year. The fund helps to keep the Isle of Man TT races and Manx Grand Prix running by funding the Manx Air Ambulance. No Air Ambulance - No TT!
Professional Auctioneer Albury Dawson will be wheeling the gavel on the day, with lots of other things to see and do!
The Auction was the brainchild of local motorcycle racer Mark Parrett, who himself is the 18 fastest man around the TT circuit. Haslemere Motorcycles was the obvious choice as Haslemere is one of Mark's main sponsors and Marty Lunde, the owner, was an international roadracer himself. Almost the whole staff at Haslemere have, or are, involved with the sport, and like most motorcyclists,  are keen to help.
Up for Auction are two Suzuki experience days, one track day at Mallory Park, an off-road day at the same venue, a ride in a replica Ford GT40, from Thruxton Sports Cars, two sets of leathers from Mark Parrett, that have been around the TT circuit at podium speeds. And arguably, the jewel in the auction is an AGV helmet signed by Valenteno Rossi himself! It will come with full certification. (Thank you AGV). Also a Shoei Helmet signed by the factory Honda UK squad.
Haslemere Motorcycles is also asking any owners of interesting or unusual  motorcycles who would like to make an appearance to make the day even more of a draw to come along on the day.
Anyone from the trade who is able to contribute any items for the auction please call Mark or Mike on 01428 641305.
