Octomore Futures x 12 (Ralfy's Bonneville Fundraiser)
Lot number: 0541177
Winning bid: £1,150
In August of 2016 internet whisky commentator Ralfy will be attempting up to six World Records in the 250cc motorcycle class at the World Famous Bonneville Salt Flats SpeedWeek in Utah, U.S.A.
Bonneville is home to over 100 years of multiple vehicle world land speed records with 'wheels' as diverse as haulage trucks to rocket-ship streamliners.
As part of an experienced and successful team, Ralfy has the support of skilled engineers and training by a current World Land Speed record holder.
This is no jolly-trip by Ralfy, this is a serious attempt at land speed records. You can follow Ralfy and his Team at saltywheels.blogspot.com
To help raise the funds towards logistics and transport, Ralfy had provided this one of three varied and very different collectable items, all of which have been personalised in different ways and the sale proceeds will go into the team funds for Mission-Bonneville.
Ralfy said: "Happy bidding malt-mates, and many thanks toscotchwhiskyauctions.com for support and encouragement with this rather hot and speedy malt-mission."
