Say you and a buddy decide to go to Valencia for the final round of the MotoGP season next month. You’ll need two round-trip flights. You’ll need some place to stay. You’ll need money for food, ground transportation, and of course, tickets for the race. How much do you think all that will cost? If you’re lucky, about $3.
Riders for Health – the official charity of MotoGP, with support from Bridgestone and MCN, is running a contest right now that, if you win, will have you and a friend flown from anywhere in the world to Valencia, put up in a four-star hotel, and given VIP treatment all weekend from November 8th thru 10th.
You’ll be given exclusive paddock passes, hospitality with MotoGP teams, and grid passes so you can watch the start of the race alongside the celebrities, umbrella girls, and the best motorcycle racers on planet Earth. After the race, you’ll get to spend some face-time with Valentino Rossi and some other dudes that race bikes for a living in MotoGP.
Finally, you’ll receive money-can’t-buy tickets to the End of Season award ceremony. How’s that for a slice of fried gold? (Simon Pegg – Shaun of the Dead reference).
The contest runs for another ten days at www.prizeo.com/motogp and it only takes $3 to win. If you feel like improving your odds by donating $50 you’ll get a sweet Riders for Health and MotoGP limited edition t-shirt. If you decide to go all in and donate $125, you’ll also get an exclusive print by none other than A&R’s own legendary MotoGP photog, Scott Jones.
Oh, and one more thing: Even if you lose, you’re still helping Riders for Health deliver basic life-saving health care to children, women, and men across Africa. Not too shabby.
