Formula 1 drivers are helping support the cancer treatment of New Zealand-born V8 Supercar driver Jason Richards with an auction.
All the 2011 F1 drivers have signed a wishbone from a Red Bull Racing car, a piece that was donated by the team and arranged by Mark Webber, who has close ties to Richards.
The wishbone is now for sale by auction at www.bid4jase.com, a fund-raising initiative launched by the V8 Supercar fraternity in Australia and New Zealand.
"Jason is one of Australasia's great talents and I've been keeping a close eye on his progress since he was diagnosed with Adrenocortical Carcinoma in November last year," Webber said. "He has a very rare and aggressive form of cancer and we wanted to do our bit to support him and his family during this tough time."
Despite undergoing treatment, Richards was able to return to action to compete in the races that supported the Australian Grand Prix back in March.
All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Richards and his family to support his treatment and time away from the racetrack. The auction closes on June 27.
