WRC-BRC Cyclists offer the chance to win a piece of history

The rally crews behind the recent WRC-BRC Cycle are offering motorsport fans the chance to win a piece of motorsport history in the first of two exclusive Ebay auctions - the helmet Hannu Mikkola wore for the 2008 Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally.

Monies raised from the two auctions will go towards the huge sum already raised by the cyclists for Spinal Research and the Wales Air Ambulance.

"The helmet was kindly donated to us by Nicky Grist," said cycle organiser Mark Lewis. "It offers us the chance to raise even more money for two well deserving and rally friendly charities, while also giving someone the opportunity to own a fantastic piece of memorabilia."

Mikkola was one of many former world rally champions who took part in the 2008 Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally in tribute to the late British champion. He was co-driven by Nicky Grist in a Ford Escort Mk2.

"Hannu has also signed the helmet, further increasing the value of it," said Lewis. "We have put the item on Ebay for a week and a direct link to it on our website which is at wrc-brc.co.uk Please spread the word to all of your motorsport mad friends. Thanks to everyone who has supported us so far, and to those who are going to bid - good luck!"

The helmet is listed on Ebay as item number 140340303072. Bidding ends on 26th August.

This is the first of two WRC-BRC auctions which will appear on Ebay to raise further funds for the charity cycle. News of the second auction will be announced when the helmet has been sold.
