|By Toby Moody||Monday, November 5th 2007, 12:47 GMT|
Motorsport fans the world over will be able to bid for two Red Bull Racing F1 cars next March as the Wings For Life Foundation puts up a bevvy of motorsport exotica, topped by the two RBR cars driven by David Coulthard and Mark Webber at the 2007 British Grand Prix.
Each car was covered in 30,000 pictures of race fans who made a donation through the foundation's website for the charity. Over US $1m was raised towards research for the spinal cord research foundation that has Red Bull's founder Dietrich Mateschitz as a founder.
KTM's motorsport manager, Hienz Kinigadner, also said that the 2007 Dakar Rally-winning motorcycle will be up for grabs too amongst a host of other 'money-cannot-normally-buy' artifacts.
Auction site eBay will host the auction in March, just before the 2008 F1 season gets underway.
All works KTM motorcycle teams have been running Wings For Life logos, together with the Red Bull Racing F1 team throughout 2007.
Wings For Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation is an approved charity organisation, funding international cutting edge research projects with the aim of finding a cure for Spinal cord injuries.
The Wings for Life website will publish details of the items up for auction closer to the time.
