Piece of motoring ‘history’ to be auctioned for Victorian Bushfire Appeal

Holden Special Vehicles and the Toll Holden Racing Team has announced an auction to support the Victorian Bushfire Appeal with a twist – the highest bidder will receive the fender from HSV’s W427, which spectacularly collided with a wall of tyres at Oran Park late last year.

The prize also includes a T2 ‘hot lap’ and lunch with the man behind the wheel of the famous Aussie Supercar at the time of the prang, the Toll Holden Racing Team’s Garth Tander, the company’s Clayton headquarters.

According to the 2007 V8 Supercar Champion, it is a small contribution to raising money to support the victims of the bushfire tragedy.

“So many people have lost everything and both HSV and HRT wanted to put together a unique opportunity to make a donation to this most worthy cause,” Tander said.

‘I’d urge all V8 Supercar fans and motoring enthusiasts to get behind this auction – not only will they be supporting a really worthy cause but it’s a chance to own a pretty special piece of motoring history.”

The auction has a reserve of $1000 and begins today, Tuesday February 17, with last bids due by 4:25pm on Friday February 27.
