As part of the Suzuki Motofest, the organisers announced a new, extraordinary charity auction: the Accident Prevention Committee of the National Police Headquarters (ORFK-OBB), Hungaroring and Suzuki auctioned off a Shoei Suzuki GT-Air helmet together. The objective was to play an active role in society and to support the work of an organisation closely related to motorcycling. The proceeds of the auction of this premium quality race helmet went to the Hungarian Motorcycle Ambulance Foundation (Magyar Mentőmotor Alapítvány) to support them in their hard work, so that they can manage the emergency calls they receive every day smoothly.
Only motorbike owners who were present could make bids, and only during the event. Motofest participants were mobilised by the good cause and the premium quality helmet immediately, so a number of bids were made, the amount soon exceeded HUF 100,000, and it took only a few more bidders and the auction was over.
Representatives of ORFK-OBB, Hungaroring, Suzuki and the Hungarian Motorcycle Ambulance Foundation all congratulated the lucky bidder who won the premium Shoei Suzuki GT-Air race helmet.
Special thanks are due to József Repelik, as, in addition to his bid of HUF 150,000, he made another donation to the Hungarian Motorcycle Ambulance Foundation.
The Shoei Suzuki GT-Air helmet was signed by Máté Laczkó motorcycle racer and then presented to the generous bidder, who, together with his business partner, offered an additional donation of HUF 500,000 to the Hungarian Motorcycle Ambulance Foundation. Big respect to Mr. Laczkó and his business partner for their generous donation.
Organisers said that the auction at the Suzuki Motofest was a great success, and every participant was happy to see that the charity programme was crowned with a real noble donation.
