There is one very special auction item on the evening; Yamaha Racing, Lin Jarvis and Andrew Smith from Yamaha Europe have kindly donated two passes for the Silverstone Moto GP in August. This will include Paddock Passes from Friday to Sunday. On Saturday they will become special guests of the Yamaha team which includes a garage tour, some goodies to take away and meeting Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.
Carl Fogarty said "Cancer is sadly an illness I know too much about, I have lost, like many, good friends from this awful illness. Carly made contact with me about doing a chat night for Huck and I was more than happy to come and help out. I hope the night can raise some good money for Friends of Huck. It will be good to see familiar faces from the racing paddocks but also new fans from my jungle experience, I'm looking forward to it and hope to see you there."
James Whitham is also no stranger to the illness having battled Hodgkin's Lymphoma back in 1991 and successfully beating it. "When I was asked to do this I didn't give it a second thought as I love the world of motorsport and keen to also support cancer charities so the combination is perfect. Mark is only young and has a little boy who is only seven, if we are able to make some money to give him that extra time then it is more than worth it."
