The auction will consist of Ambrose’s race-worn helmet as well as a Yarra Glen Volunteer Fire Brigade outer jacket, which was worn by Steve Teear during the recent fires and personally signed by all the brigade members. Steve Teear is a member of the Yarra Glen Volunteer Fire Brigade, which is part of the Victorian Country Fire Authority (CFA).The money raised from the auction will go towards the purchase of a new 3000-liter four-wheel drive water tanker for them.

The helmet will be personally autographed by Ambrose with any message requested by the winning bidder.

Fans will be able to register and bid through with the auction closing at midnight Monday April 6, Australian Eastern Time (10am ET Monday, April 6).
