Mark Webber and Sam Michael are among the Australian contingent in F1 who are clubbing together to raise money for legendary speedway rider Leigh Adams, who sustained serious injuries from an off-road motorcycle accident while training for the Finke Desert Race a few weeks ago.
Now he has a long rehabilitation in front of him.
Adams is a 10 times Australian speedway champion and he raced in the world championship, winning multiple Grands Prix before returning to Australia about 6 months ago. He’s essentially the Peter Brock of speedway in Australia!
Michael and Webber, both friends of Adams, along with the help of others, have managed to pull together some items to auction to raise money for his rehabilitation.
The items so far are:
Williams FW32 Rear Wing Mainplane (Signed)
Williams FW32 Front Wing Flap (Signed)
Red Bull RB4 Rear Wing Endplate (Signed by all F1 drivers)
Williams Technical Centre Tour
Belgian GP. Race Day Paddock Passes & Hospitality with Williams
