A ‘Stop-Cancer’ MotoGP charity helmet signed by twelve MotoGP riders has been traded for a record-breaking value £200,000 ($311600).

The riders signed by Giacomo Agostini, Angel Nieto, Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Márquez, Dani Pedrosa, Wayne Rainey, Loris Capirossi, Àlex Crivillé, Wayne Gardner, Scott Russell and Randy Mamola – the most costly in the world, with all earnings being donated to charity.

Anthony Constantinou, CEO of CWM FX and title Sponsor of LCR Honda from 2015, was at Valencia for the last race of the MotoGP season. Having heard about the auction, he decided to take part online… and offered a staggering £200,000!

“With so many families affected by cancer, it’s important that we all join together to support the charities which provide vital services for patients and their loved ones,” Constantinou told the source Crash.net.

“The team has done an excellent job in raising awareness and funds. I’m pleased I could play a part in this deserving cause and I hope it inspires others to get involved in the fight against cancer.”
