The Keith Evers Recovery Fund auction at Queensland Raceway today has raised an incredible $28,750.

Evers, a long-time member of the Australian motorsport community has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and in true Australian spirit, the community rallied, creating a massive memorabilia store and auction.

The auction alone almost raised $30,000, with three of the 22 items passed and will available in a separate auction through Speedcafe.com.au on eBay.com.au.

The three items that remain available include the very rare TeamVodafone ‘pink’ front guard that the team used at the Sydney Telstra 500 – signed by Craig Lowndes. Other items still up for grabs is a Formula Ford test with the factory Spectrum race team and a Versarce Bowl signed by five-time Australian touring car champions Dick Johnson and Mark Skaife.

Two items sold for $3500, including a trip for two to take in the action from the Sydney Telstra 500 from the Orrcon Steel corporate facility, including flights and accomodation. Also, a V8 Supercars wheel and tyre, signed by all 29 V8 drivers, was sold for $3500.

The helmet of Australian IndyCar driver Will Power was sold for $3100, while two Dick Johnson Racing race suits were picked up by a phone bidder for $3000.

More merchandise and rare race gear is still on sale at Queensland Raceway, located next to the Speedcafe Shop in the merchandise area.
