HSV has today annouced that it will auction off the front fender from the HSV W427 which collided with a wall of tyres at Oran Park last year.
HSV goes on to say that the prize will also include a ‘hot lap’ with Garth Tander (who happened to be at the wheel when the W427 was stacked into the wall) in a HRT lap car. The auction winner also receives lunch with the man himself at HSV’s Clayton headquarters.
Tander says that the money raised will be a small, but needed contribution to those who have lost everything in the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, dubbed ‘Black Saturday’.
“So many people have lost everything and both HSV and HRT wanted to put together a unique opportunity to make a donation to this most worthy cause.”
‘I’d urge all V8 Supercar fans and motoring enthusiasts to get behind this auction – not only will they be supporting a really worthy cause but it’s a chance to own a pretty special piece of motoring history.”
With a reserve of $1,000, the auction is set to finish at 4:25pm on February 27th, 2009.

Keep an eye out late this evening for a set of three auctions CarAdvice will run to help the Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009. An FPV auction, HSV auction and assorted auction will host an assortment of automotive erotica to get bids flowing.
Melbourne winners will also be collected and taken out to lunch with the CarAdvice team, we promise to be gentle!
