Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Race to Help Lloyds Bushfire Appeal Auction

One of Australia’s greatest Australian Motor Racing Teams, Walkinshaw Andretti United, has donated an incredible package to raise funds for those affected in the current bushfire crisis.

The Melbourne based race team will put to auction their six crew and two racing suits from the 2020 racing season, along with the winning bidders name or company inside Chaz Mostert’s car, and a weekend at this year’s Bathurst 1000 with the team.

“We are honoured to be able to donate such a unique experience to the Lloyds Bushfire Relief Auction, with all of the proceeds going towards the Salvation Army,” Bruce Stewart, Co Team Principal of Walkinshaw Andretti United commented.

Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer at Lloyds Auctions, has expressed his gratitude for the support from Walkinshaw Andretti United.

“We are blown away by this donation from the team at Walkinshaw, and we hope to raise a great amount of funds, with 100% of proceeds going towards the Salvation Army.”

“This item is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and we highly encourage all of those race car fans out there who are able, to jump on and bid to help support our fellow Australians in need during this tough time,” Lee Hames said.

Walkinshaw’s ultimate experience going under the hammer is just one of many incredible items on offer, with a series of auctions to come over the coming weeks, potentially raising millions of dollars.

“We are still continuing to receive items, it has not slowed down, the phones are ringing. We are very grateful for support we have received from the community, businesses and celebrities. We are continuing to process more items on the website every day and we are looking forward to raising funds to support those in need right now.” Hames said.

“As these unprecedented bushfires tear through Australia, we want to help as many fire-affected lives as possible.”
