Pirelli F1 tyre auctioned for charity

Pirelli has auctioned off an exclusive Formula 1 tyre which has been signed by all members of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team.

All proceeds will be donated to the AIP Foundation, a non-profit organisation taking care of projects to increase road safety – in particular for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists – in low and middle-income countries such as those of Southeast Asia.

The foundation currently operates in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Philippines, India and China, with projects dedicated to education, road safety (particularly in schools) and production of safe yet low-cost helmets for local populations, with the involvement of disabled workers.

The association actively collaborates with the FIA, United Nations Road Safety Collaboration, Child Health Initiative, Safe Kids Worldwide and Global Alliance of NGOs for road safety.
