You definitely can’t buy happiness (nor love for that matter, *cue violin and post V-day sadness*), but you can buy a behind-the-scenes pass to the Austin, Texas for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas. Riders for Health, the official charity of MotoGP, is bringing its “Day of Stars” event to Austin and giving fans an exclusive view behind the world of MotoGP.

If satisfying your selfish desire to meet MotoGP riders and pit-crews, getting served a catered lunch, and taking your own bike for a spin at the Circuit of the Americas wasn’t existentially appealing to you, you can be rest assured that $375 out of every $500 ticket will go as tax-deductible donation directly to Riders for Health.

We at Asphalt & Rubber support Riders and their mission to develop and maintain effective healthcare transportation services in rural regions of the African continent. So while you schmooze your favorite MotoGP pros, be smug in your philanthropic goodness.

The event is limited to 100 participants and includes a charity auction where you can pick up some rare race memorabilia or bid on other one-in-a-lifetime experiences.

So if you want a day spent at, within, around and behind the races, then inquire within. They’ll accept payment by check or PayPal.

  • I plan on outbidding anyone for Nicky Hayden leathers. Just sayin’.

    A buddy and I did the Day of Stars in 2011 at Laguna Seca. It was an incredible experience and very worth the cost of admission. Randy Mamola was our tour guide around the MotoGP pit area, and we even met Wayne Rainey and Kenny Roberts!

  • thanks from Africa also !!
