LONDON, ENGLAND – June 1, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – RM Sotheby’s is delighted to announce the remarkable charity auction of Charles Leclerc’s race-worn helmet, race suit, gloves, and boots, all worn during the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix weekend. The ‘Charles Leclerc for Emilia-Romagna!’ sale, which represents an important personal initiative by Leclerc, offers a rare opportunity to acquire highly coveted race apparel directly from the Scuderia Ferrari driver, with all proceeds going to a fantastic cause. All money raised will benefit those most affected by the recent flooding in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. With an estimated 20,000 people having been displaced, these have been the worst floods in Italy in 100 years.
The cutting-edge race helmet Bell HP77 full-face helmet was worn by Leclerc for the duration of the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix—a thrilling rain-affected race which will live long in the memory—which saw the Ferrari driver battle to a 6th-place finish. Most notable about the helmet is the unique livery, designed by Charles himself; the unique design was inspired by the one that was worn by his father, Herve Leclerc. The race suit was also specifically created for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix and features bold red-and-white styling echoing the colours of the Monaco flag. The race boots also form part of the special uniform that Leclerc wore for his home race and were also designed specifically for the Monaco Grand Prix. The charity auction is completed by Leclerc’s racing-worn gloves, also complementing the unique aesthetic for the race weekend.
This is a one-off opportunity to acquire a complete, genuine race-worn race outfit, including a uniquely designed helmet, which is an item rarely offered to the open market, let alone from one of the sport’s most revered drivers. Every one of the four lots is signed by Charles Leclerc himself, and each is also offered with a certificate of authenticity. With all the proceeds to benefit the stricken state of Emilia-Romagna in Italy, this presents an unmissable opportunity for any petrolhead or motorsport aficionado.
