The eBay online auction to raise money for the family of late Verizon IndyCar Series driver Justin Wilson is off to a strong star.
The first batch of items up for auction is a group of 19 racing helmets – 17 worn by drivers in the season-ending GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on Aug. 30, along with Townsend Bell’s colorful helmet from the 2014 Indianapolis 500 and the helmet worn by racing legend Mario Andretti when he drove Honda’s “Fastest Seat in Sports” two-seat Indy car at Indianapolis and other events this year.
The eBay auction is live through Oct. 26. Click HERE for details.
In addition to Indy car memorabilia, drivers and teams from Formula One, NASCAR, World Endurance Challenge, Global Rallycross and United SportsCar Championship have donated items for auction. Non-racing items include a microphone autographed by The Who’s Roger Daltrey from the iconic rock group’s concert this year at the Glastonbury Festival in England.
The original is being auctioned on the eBay website. The image commemorates Wilson's final victory, driving the Sonny's BBQ car at Texas Motor Speedway in 2012.
Tribute T-shirts are available HERE. Fans who sell their own Wilson-related items on eBay can designate the Graham Rahal Foundation as their chosen charity and proceeds will be donated to the Wilson Children’s Fund as well.
