Castrol Racing Supercar Bonnet for Auction
Supercars driver Thomas Randle and Castrol Racing are raising funds for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation, auctioning the bonnet of the no.55 Mustang through Lloyds Auctions this weekend.
The no.55 Mustang has been transformed in a custom purple livery as part of the fundraising initiative for the Peter MacCallum foundations ONTrac service which provides care for adolescents and young adults affected by cancer.
Now declared cancer-free and racing full-time in the Supercars Championship, Thomas Randle and naming rights partner Castrol want to give back, and are auctioning the bonnet of his No. 55 Castrol Racing Ford Mustang as it is raced at the 2022 Sandown SuperSprint.
“This bonnet is genuinely one-of-a-kind, as it raced with the special Peter Mac livery I raced at Sandown over the weekend as part of a fundraiser for ONTrac,” said Mr. Thomas Randle, Supercars driver of the no.55 Mustang for Tickford Racing.
“The bonnet will make a fantastic addition to one fan’s garage or man cave, and they’ll be happy to know that their purchase will go entirely to bettering the lives of young people with cancer,” continued Mr. Randle.
“We feel privileged to be auctioning the no.55 supercar bonnet and raising funds for a much-needed cause,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.
“All proceeds raised from this auction will be donated directly to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation, helping the foundation and the Peter Mac team strive for a cancer-free future,” continued Mr. Hames.
The no.55 bonnet will go under the hammer this Sunday 28th August from 7:00pm.
