  • Limited edition Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916, number 5 of 500 in commemoration Carlin Dunne’s racing number, will be available for auction from September 5 – 15
  • Chaz Davies’ racing leather suit with commemorative livery from Laguna Seca World Superbike, part of auction
  • Proceeds from the auction will support Carlin Dunne Foundation to help with preventative resources and rehabilitation programs supporting extreme sport athletes
Mountain View, Calif., 6 September 2019 – Ducati has announced a charity auction to support the newly established Carlin Dunne Foundation, born to commemorate the memory and preserve the legacy of Ducati racing legend Carlin Dunne. Among Carlin’s many accomplishments, he was a four-time champion of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and his loss has been felt throughout the international motorcycling community.

A limited edition Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916 – which is numbered 5 of 500, in order to honor Carlin Dunne’s race number – will be available for bidding beginning September 5. The auction will run until September 15. The motorcycle is homologated for the US and has a value of $42,500. Proceeds of the auction will be donated to the foundation created in memory of Carlin and will serve as initial capital for activities. The trend of the auction can be seen on the  dedicated eBay page and the final transaction must be made through an American dealer.

In addition to the motorcycle, Ducati World Superbike rider, Chaz Davies has donated his racing leather suit from his winning race weekend in Laguna Seca during 2019 World Superbike as part of this auction. The suit was specially designed as part of the unveiling of the Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916 and fashions a livery inspired from those of Carl Fogarty’s leathers from the era of the 916 Superbike.

The Carlin Dunne Foundation was created upon Dunne’s passing to carry on his legacy by aiding in the development of preventative resources and rehabilitation programs supporting extreme sport athletes diagnosed with and/or at risk of acquiring Concussion Syndrome, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), and traumatic brain injuries. Additionally, and separate from the Panigale V4 auction, the Carlin Dunne Foundation is enrolled in the eBay for Charity program in which people and organizations can support the Carlin Dunne Foundation directly by selecting the Carlin Dunne Foundation as their charity of choice when listing an item. For more information on the Carlin Dunne Foundation, visit www.carlindunne.org.

The announcement of the auction also coincides with the lead-in to a Carlin Dunne Memorial Weekend (Celebration of Life) to be held in Santa Barbara. For more information about the celebration, please visit carlindunne5.com/celebration.
