Auction to benefit family of Justin Wilson begins Sept. 14
The charity aims to raise at least $1 million for the family, and Rahal continues to amass an amazing collection of lots from around the motorsports world to make sure that happens. Among the items donated so far are the helmets from the entire IndyCar grid from this year's final race at Sonoma, including championship winner Scott Dixon. Plus, memorabilia from Formula 1 and other series are also part of the auction. "We have the biggest names in NASCAR who are donating personal items. We've had the same from drivers and teams in IMSA, the WEC, the NHRA, the V8 Supercars in Australia, and so many others who want to contribute really amazing items so fans can bid and help Justin's family," Rahal said to Racer.
To fully maximize the auction's results, eBay is taking an active role, as well. Expect to see the sale promoted heavily on its homepage, and the company is waiving transaction fees on the items. When each lot sells, the proceeds go directly to the Wilson Children's Fund.
