Supporting the Cause
Chrissy Rouse and Dom Herbertson are no strangers to the world of motorsport. Chrissy is the 2020 National Superstock 1000 champion while Dom is an Isle of Man TT top-10 finisher. These riders know how to get what they want, and they have set their sites on raising thousands of dollars for Macmillan Cancer Support through auctioning off their beloved signed racing gear.
If you’ve ever listened to the ‘Chasin’ the Racin’ podcast, you probably know this duo and their plan very well. For those of you who are less informed, the podcasting duo began their journey into this project earlier this week when they took a Shark Race R Pro helmet and got it signed by a ton of guests from their show; Michael Rutter, Mick Grant, Josh Brookes, and Niall Mackenzie, to name a few.
the fundraiser began on Monday, November 16th, and is planned to last for a total of 7 days to end on the 23rd of November.
“It’s amazing to see everyone coming together to raise good money for a worthy cause,” the British champion continued. “With the crash helmet, anything raised is good, but if I had to guess, I would hope to raise at least £2000 – but I’ve got no idea if that will happen or not.”
The helmet is currently up on eBay with bids sitting at £1,020.00 and can be found here. In the event you have some rare racing commodities you would be willing to part with to help further their cause, please contact them on Twitter @motorbikepod and they would be happy to accept the item for future auctions.
