Together with our ROC drivers and Racing For Cancer, the Race Of Champions is uniting motorsport fans, teams and sponsors to raise money for the Pediatric Care Unit at the Nicklaus Children’s Cancer Centre in Miami, the region’s leading center for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and blood disorders in children.
Now ROC is launching a charity auction to include unique items like the ROC Art Car – a unique Polaris Slingshot painted by Miami artist Alex Mijares (pictured) and raced by drivers including Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Kanaan. There is also a limited edition ROC Watch by Louis Moinet (1 of only 29 pieces made) along with exclusive VIP experiences and racing gear including overalls, gloves and shoes – all worn and autographed by this weekend’s Race Of Champions drivers.
Specific lots include a race suit, balaclava and gloves worn and signed by Sebastian Vettel, a race suit worn and signed by Ryan Hunter-Reay, racing boots from Kyle Busch, racing gloves from Kurt Busch and Petter Solberg plus goggles and gloves from action sports legend Travis Pastrana. There are also T-shirts, magazines and caps signed by all ROC’s competing drivers plus much, much more.
On behalf of all participating race drivers, the Race Of Champions has also joined forces with AutoNation and Racing For Cancer to help drive out cancer. To make a $10 donation please text ‘RFC’ to 20222. All proceeds both from this and the auction will go to the new Pediatric Cancer Care Unit at Miami’s Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
The Race Of Champions is an annual end-of-season contest which has been running for over 25 years. It brings together some of the world's greatest drivers from motor sport's major disciplines – including Formula 1, NASCAR, IndyCar, Le Mans, Rally X and Touring Cars – and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery. Last weekend it made its debut on American soil at Miami’s Marlins Park.
