A1 Team Great Britain is to continue its fundraising efforts for Demelza Hospice Care for Children with an online auction of memorabilia from the 2008 A1GP Brands Hatch race.

The team will start a one-week charity auction today [Friday], the proceeds of which will go to Demelza Hospice Care for Children, the team's nominated charity. The items from the 2007/08 A1GP World Cup of Motorsport season finale will be available to bid for on auction site eBay from 12 noon, with bidding closing a week later.

There will be two lots up for grabs in the auction, with a minimum bid of ?150 per item. The first item is the 2008 A1GP Brands Hatch winner's podium backdrop and the second the race-suit worn by Robbie Kerr when he drove the British A1GP car to victory in the Sprint race on Sunday 4 May. Both items will be signed by GBR race winner Robbie Kerr and dedicated to the bidder if requested.

The online auction follows on from GBR's previous efforts to raise funds and awareness for Demelza, which has included hosting the 'Flying Finale Ball' at Brands Hatch in each of the last two seasons.

"I would really urge people to visit eBay over the next week and bid for these money-can't-buy items and raise much needed funds for Demelza," team principal Katie Clements said. "One lucky bidder will get the backdrop of the Brands Hatch winner's podium, with another winning Robbie's race-suit from race day - I think you can still smell the champagne! Demelza is a fantastic charity - we've been involved for three years now and I am delighted that we can help their fundraising efforts with activities like this."

Demelza is a charity providing hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families across Kent, East Sussex and South London.
