Often regarded as a soft touch when it comes to charitable causes, Jim McRae has volunteered to sell six rides in his Ford Sierra Cosworth to the six highest bidders.
Bids close on the 27th of April, at which point the winning bidders will be notified when to gather at Knockhill Race Circuit at a mutually agreeable time in June. At which point they will be invited to pull on a crash hat, strap themselves into this iconic machine, and go for a high speed hurl round the track and stage at Scotland's national motoring sporting centre.
Two years ago, Hamilton College in Lanarkshire sent a group of students to Tanzania to work with the Vine Trust, helping to build houses and working in orphanages. For their part each of the students have to pay their own way and raise as much money as they can to purchase building supplies and educational materials for children, and this is where Jim comes in. He has 'volunteered' to help!
Bidders can pledge their bids on a specially created Facebook page either publicly on site or privately (if you're shy) by Facebook personal message. The winning bidders will then be messaged back and full details of where and when can be emailed out after the closing date.
