All of the proceeds from the Ebay auction will be donated to The Air Ambulance Service which covers Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance.

A spokesman for Kyle Ryde Racing said: "Businesses are kindly asked to bid in our online auction for the opportunity to be seen by tens of thousands of people on social media and TV.

"After our huge success at Donington Park, we have decided that the advertising spot on the front of Kyle’s bike, which is currently showing ‘YOUR NAME’ would be best used to give something back to the local community.

"The winning bidders company name will be displayed on the bike for the whole of the race weekend and will appear prominently on Kyle’s social media channels."
