Dovi’s SPIDI Suit – Marked & Signed by Rossi – Up for Auction

Dovi’s SPIDI Suit - Marked & Signed by Rossi - Up for AuctionDovi’s SPIDI Suit

The SPIDI suit worn by Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso during the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix in August is on the block for charity.

All the proceeds from the suit, which is also singed by Dovi’s fellow Italian countryman Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), will benefit the Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo, a charity that provides medical care to children in developing countries.

The online auction is currently underway here.

The suit also bears a black mark from Rossi’s tire. During an aggressive overtaking maneuver at Indy MotoGP, Rossi contacted Dovi.

Of course, the nine-time World Champion apologized immediately after the race, though Dovi declared the contact as a fine occurrence under normal race conditions.

The non-profit Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo thanks the two MotoGP stars, and all funds will be used to support heart surgery units in the most deprived areas of the world.

About Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo.

Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo trains doctors, builds and support cardio-surgical paediatric centres in the most deprived areas of the world and provides health care to children affected by heart dysfunctions.

The association counts on a voluntary staff of more than 150 people (surgeons, physicians, assistants and technicians). It is active in deprived areas in order to give a life hope to children with heart diseases. The charity is active also in war zones including Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan with facilities in aid of refugees.
