TwitGP2 Fundraising and Prize Details

As you hopefully know by now, the TwitGP2 race will be on Sunday, April 17. (If you don't, read this.)

The specific reason we're conducting a VIRTUAL RACE this year is to raise money for the kiddiwinkles of Japan, affected by the quake n' waves. So, we're respectfully suggesting that a £2 donation made to our fund at would be appropriate - think of it as your TwitGP2 entrance fee.

AND...after the race we'll dish out a handful of VERY COOL prizes to random people who have donated. The person picking the names will be a blindfolded Suzi Perry (the concept of which has prompted an unprecedented amount of filthy comments from men-folk).

PS If you've got a decent prize you wish to donate to the best thing in motorcycling, tweet us, or risk looking badly out of step and old-fashioned.

Details on the prizes to be announced soon, but already we've got some incredible extras coming in:

The PRIZE FUND so far is...

- a SIGNED @suziperry bike jacket - wear this and you'll instantly pull.

- a PAIR OF PADDOCK PASSES FOR THE BRITISH SUPERBIKES SEASON, courtesy of the genuinely tremendous @OfficialBSB. Yes, a pair! For the season!

- a copy of "Jorge Lorenzo - Portrait of a Champion", a gorgeous (and expensive) photo book, signed by both YOUR 2010 MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPION Jorge Lorenzo, and owner of the BBC, @MattRobertsBBC.

- a SIGNED copy of "Queen of Bikers" by Isle of Man TT racer @mariacostello, a true heroine of road racing.

- a SIGNED copy of the definitive book on grand prix boffinism, "MotoGP Technology" by Neil Spalding, aka @spalders. If you read it, you will be instantly made brainy. 

- a copy of the British Superbike 2010 Season Review, signed by BSB champion Ryuichi Kiyonari. Surely a future collector's item, thanks again to @OfficialBSB. 

- an Brands Hatch winner's cap, signed by two-time BSB champ and former MotoGP rider Shakey Byrne, aka @67Shakey. Again high fives to @OfficialBSB.
