Story launches motorsport memorabilia auction

Vendor proceeds to aid ‘The Ryan Story Worthy Causes Fund’, specifically benefiting Camp Quality and the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

30 May 2024

Dr Ryan Story AM, co-owner and team principal of Dick Johnson Racing, philanthropist and a prominent figure in motorsport, has announced the launch of his highly anticipated Motorsport Memorabilia Auction.

Teaming up with the experts at Donington Auctions, this exciting timed online auction gets underway on Monday 17th June, concluding on Sunday 30th June, and promising a superb showcase of some of motorsport’s finest memorabilia. Every bid and all vendor proceeds of this auction will be donated to and fuel ‘The Ryan Story Worthy Causes Fund’, specifically benefiting Camp Quality and the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

With a target of $200,000, Story is releasing a treasure trove of coveted items that will set hearts racing for collectors and fans alike. From an original autographed Mark Webber driving suit from his Jaguar Formula 1 era to a helmet donned by Webber during his F3000 days, and even the iconic driving suit worn by Supercars Champion Scott McLaughlin in his triumphant 2020 championship run, this auction promises adrenaline-fuelled excitement. Not to mention the set of wheels and tyres that propelled McLaughlin to a record-breaking “Lap of the Gods 2” pole position at the 2017 Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama, which are expected to reach a bidding frenzy, with estimates surpassing $15,000.

Story explained his motivation to create the auction: “Philanthropy has always been a passion of mine, but my time as an ambassador for Camp Quality and the Prostate Cancer Foundation has reaffirmed just how important giving back is. These organisations help ordinary Australians who are facing extraordinary circumstances and seeing first-hand the positive impact they have motivated me to launch the Ryan Story Worthy Causes Fund in 2023.

“When I launched the Worthy Causes Fund last year, I wanted to have a major fundraising effort annually in addition to my own contributions. I’ve kept a number of items that hold significant personal value and with a collection so large that it needs its own warehouse, why not auction the lot for charity!”

The Motorsport Memorabilia Auction will be conducted online, allowing bidders from around the world to participate and contribute to these worthy causes. Interested individuals can register for the auction and preview the collection of memorabilia items on the official auction website: charityauction.org.au.

Join Ryan Story in supporting Camp Quality and Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia through the Motorsport Memorabilia Auction and help make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.
