How awesome is this and what a way to support our brave fire fighters along with Camp Quality. V8 Supercar team DJR Team Penske has this afternoon announced a special auction, it will feature various panels from Scott McLaughlin’s epic Gold Coast 600 crash.
For example, the front bar is currently going for just over $3,000. Also, up for grabs is the rear bar assembly from the 2019 champion-elect’s car from Sunday’s Sandown 500.
McLaughlin said, “That crash was the biggest of my career and turned my Mustang into a crumpled wreck. I’m very glad to see this auction occur, and hope that everyone digs deep, so we can help out some vulnerable people doing it tough,”
Shell V-Power Racing Team co-owner Dick Johnson added, “Watching that massive crash was a real heart-in-mouth moment, and then seeing the team put in that incredible effort to build Scott a new car in less than a week was pretty special. Now hopefully we can raise some much-needed funds for some inspirational people who need it most.”
Managing Director Ryan Story recognised the importance of the proceeds, “We have been able to hold some great fundraisers this year for Camp Quality, and with this one we also wanted to raise some money to support all those being affected by the disastrous bush fires in NSW and Queensland right now.”
The auction is live now here and will run until 22 November 2019.
