Story to auction special memorabilia for charity

DR Ryan Story is aiming to raise $200,000 for charity by putting his motorsport memorabilia collection up for auction in June.

The Dick Johnson Racing co-owner and team principal has partnered with Donington Auctions to launch the Motorsport Memorabilia Auction, with the proceeds aiding ‘The Ryan Story Worthy Causes Fund’, specifically benefitting Camp Quality and the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

“Philanthropy has always been a passion of mine, but my time as an ambassador for Camp Quality and the Prostate Cancer Foundation has reaffirmed just how important giving back is,” Story said.

“These organisations help ordinary Australians who are facing extraordinary circumstances and seeing first-hand the positive impact they have motivated me to launch the Ryan Story Worthy Causes Fund in 2023.

“When I launched (it), I wanted to have a major fundraising effort annually in addition to my own contributions.

“I’ve kept a number of items that hold significant personal value and with a collection so large that it needs its own warehouse, why not auction the lot for charity!”

And there are some incredible pieces among those being auctioned.

How about the set of wheels and tyres that were fitted to Scott McLaughlin’s #17 Ford when he clocked the first ‘three’ for a Supercar around Mount Panorama during the 2017 Bathurst 1000 Top 10 Shootout?

Or one of Mark Webber’s race suits from his time in Formula 1 with Jaguar?

Or a carbon fibre wheel cover from a Brawn GP car, the team which won the 2009 F1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships in its only season?

The timed auction gets underway on June 17 and wraps up on June 30.
