Day of champions is organised by Riders for Health and raises money for their work in Africa. There is no other day like it, in any sport. People who buy paddock pass tickets can get into the exclusive paddock and pit-lane and see the teams and riders preparing for the race weekend. There is action all day in the Entertainment Zone. This includes like music, interviews and stunt shows. The climax of the day is the Riders for Health auction. The stars of MotoGP take part in the like auction, donating signed leather, boots, helmets and one-off prints for lucky member of the crows to bid for and take home. There is also the chance to bid on exclusive, once-in-a-life-time experiences. But above everything Day of Champions is about supporting Riders for Health’s work in Africa. It is a chance to prove that motorcycles really do save lives.

Will I get to see all of my favourite riders at Day of Champions?
Hundreds of people see and even speak to some of the riders, but we cannot guarantee that you will see or get to speak to any rider. The privilege of the day lies in being able to see behind the scenes, enjoy the action on the infield and, if you booked enough in advance, to see the paddock and pit-lane. The auction, which finishes off the day, is the real chance to see the riders in person. All the MotoGP riders will try to make an appearance at the auction on the infield stage, and will give something they own up for auction to help our cause. The auction starts at 3.00pm.
