Colin Edwards eBay Gear Auction

Following the 2014 MotoGP Championship, the “Texas Tornado” Colin Edwards will retire. The Texan has always been a smiling face in the paddock, and has helped raised awareness for many great causes.

And now, Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., is giving fans an opportunity to bid on some gear worn by the NGM Forward Racing Yamaha pilot during his final year of MotoGP. The gear, consisting of road-racing leathers, boots, gloves and a helmet, will all be up for auction on Ebay; all proceeds will benefit Feed the Children, which is Yamaha Motor Corporation’s official corporate charity.

“As most people know, this is Colin’s final year in MotoGP, and the upcoming Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix will be the ‘Texas Tornado’s’ final MotoGP race in the U.S. So, this set of racing gear is extra-special, and we’re grateful to Colin for donating it to benefit Feed the Children,” commented Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications for Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A.

“Colin has continued to give back to both his fans and to Yamaha over his nearly 25 years of road racing, and we could not be more proud to have him as part of the Yamaha family.”

In addition to Colin’s racing gear, the winning bidder will receive a pair of weekend three-day general admission passes, including paddock access, to the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, August 8-10, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, along with hotel accommodations for the entire race weekend (Friday and Saturday night).

See Colin Live On Stage Saturday Evening At The Indy GP

Edwards will be live on the center stage at the Red Bull U.S.G.P. in Indianapolis from 5:30 – 6 p.m. CST Saturday evening, and he will have his T-shirt cannon primed and ready for the fans,. Other MotoGP pilots will also be there to bid him farewell.

As an added bonus, the winning bidder of the auction will be invited up on stage Saturday evening where Edwards will present his personally autographed racing gear to the lucky fan who wins the auction.
