2021 Day of Champions given go-ahead| MotoGP staff | MotoGP
Two Wheels for Life, the official charity of MotoGP, can confirm many well-loved Day of Champions fundraising activities have been given the go-ahead for 2021, despite being in a slightly different form due to covid restrictions.
This year’s exciting Day of Champions activities will take place over the Monster Energy British Grand Prix weekiend, starting with the annual ride-in on Thursday, August 26, kickstarting the British MotoGP weekend at Silverstone.
On that Thursday, Two Wheels for Life supporters will be able to join our ride-in, followed by Silverstone track time led by Two Wheels for Life co-founder Randy Mamola, former 500GP rider Niall Mackenzie and his British championship racer son Taylor, along with former MotoGP rider John Hopkins.
It doesn’t stop there, as over the weekend Two Wheels for Life will be taking to the stage with the famous MotoGP memorabilia auction. Thanks to the backing of the MotoGP family, Monster Energy and Silverstone, it’s hoped the weekend can raise a large amount of vital funding.
And for those who can’t make it to Silverstone there will be lots of activity on the charity’s social media channels throughout the weekend.

Throughout the weekend
Live auctions on the Monster Energy stage and Silverstone’s Mainstage
The Day of Champions auction is back, albeit differently as the traditional Two Wheels Mainstage events are not the same this year. Details will be shared over the coming weeks of some of the very special MotoGP memorabilia that will be up for auction.
Also, Two Wheels will be announcing which guests will be appearing on stage for insider chat, track tales and paddock banter. Action will take place on both stages throughout the weekend, make sure to follow the Two Wheels for Life social media channels.
