Riders for Health is offering people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get on board a MotoGP™ bike piloted by legendary Grand Prix racer Randy Mamola at Silverstone, the home of British motorsport.

And it doesn’t stop there. Each passenger will receive a pair of ‘premium paddock passes’ for the day of their ride and will enjoy lunch in the famous Ducati hospitality suite. It is a chance not to be missed.

Members of the public simply cannot buy the chance to ride on this bike anywhere else in the world.

All the money raised from the sale of the rides goes directly to support Riders for Health’s work in Africa.
