Electric Vectrix scooter auction action for Amber Foundation

eBay isn't the only EV auction action that's been going on recently. In a very successful effort to raise money for a British charity that helps young homeless people get their lives together, Eddie Jordan of Formula One fame, put up a pair of white Vectrix maxi-scooters to be sent home to the highest bidders. The event , held at Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill in Knightsbridge, London, featured live music from Jordan's rock band (he's a drummer) as well as an "exclusive dinner" whipped up by Marco Pierre White. While the amounts of the winning bids weren't disclosed, they may well have been records since the event raised over £500,000 for The Amber Foundation.

The record setters? Damon Hill, also of Formula One fame (1996 World Champion) and Roger Taylor, drummer of the iconic rock band Queen (We are the Champions). Now both men, once they receive some scooter-riding instruction from Vectrix, are set to become zero-carbon scooter-riding champions.
