Valentino Rossi #thisforSIC58 Dainese Suit Auction

Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, Dainese announced that nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi would honor his late friend Marco Simoncelli.

How? By donning a Dainese D-Air Racing suit donning the hashtag #thisforSIC58, which shows the 34-year old Rossi’s support of the Marco Simoncelli Foundation, an organization dedicated to the memory of his friend Marco.

And now the suit is up for auction on eBay, with all proceeds contributing to the Santa Marta project, a day center for disabled people that the organization is building near Coriano, Marco’s hometown.

The winner will receive the suit in a special case that is autographed by Rossi.

#thisforSIC58 is the official hashtag created by Dainese to commemorate Marco Simoncelli, who passed away at 2011 Sepang MotoGP. The hashtag promotes the projects of solidarity and cooperation that the Foundation is supporting. The original Valentino Rossi suit is just one out of many Dainese products worn by World Championship riders that will be available on the new dainese.com website.
