Welcome to the beta version of the new Women & Golf website. Our web monkeys are still hard at work and welcome your feedback.  



Race fans are being given the chance to get exclusive access to every MotoGP paddock thanks to Riders for Health and MotoGP owners, Dorna. The passes are being sold to raise funds for Riders, the official charity of MotoGP, in a series of incredible online auctions.

The Spanish company have donated two pairs of weekend ‘premium paddock passes’ for each race on the 2008 calendar for Riders to auction on their website www.riders.org. Forget watching the race at home on the sofa, the two winning bidders and their guests will spend the whole GP weekend behind the scenes in the MotoGP paddock.

For a chance to get hold of a pair of passes, just visit the new online auction section HERE. The first GP is in Qatar from the 6th-9th March, and the auction closes at 21:00GMT on 2nd March 2008.


These passes aren’t on sale anywhere else. Each race will have its own auction, so fans can bid for the GP closest to them – or the passes could be part of an amazing MotoGP holiday at one of the 18 circuits visited by MotoGP.

Dorna have changed the rules on paddock passes for 2008. There will only be an extremely limited number of premium passes for the MotoGP section of the paddock – so this season’s paddock passes are even more exclusive than usual!

All the money raised from the auctions will support Riders’ work in Africa, helping health workers to deliver health care by motorcycle.

The support of MotoGP and its fans is helping Riders to reach millions of people across Africa with regular health care. In 2008 Riders will be reaching even more people with their new country programme in Lesotho.

Please note that the auctions are only for paddock passes and do not include flights or accommodation. For more information on the auctions please email auctions@rider.org.
