This is a genuine Honda F1 Racing Suit owned, worn (circa 1996) and signed by Jenson Button.

The suit has the official FIA suit number (see image #3) and has been signed by Jenson across the chest (see image #1 & #2). This has been very kindly donated to me for auction by Jenson's management - for which I'm massively grateful.

I'm running this auction as part of running the 2012 London Marathon. I have Cystic Fibrosis and 5 years ago the doctors told me I was considered "End stage" and I was given a terminal prognosis, meaning that statistically I wasn't supposed to live for more than 12-18 months; my only chance for survival was a transplant. Miraculously in September 2007, I underwent a 7.5 hour life-saving double lung transplant. Unfortunately many people aren't as lucky and die waiting for organs to become available. The average life expectancy for someone with Cystic Fibrosis is just 38.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetically inherited illness that affects the lungs and digestive system. Today there still is no cure, although the advances of Gene Therapy are continuing at an incredible rate and in a few years things will hopefully start to change. With the money raised from this auction, and sponsorship from my London Marathon page, every penny raised will go towards that all important, and significant, gene therapy research helping to save thousands upon thousands of lives.

If, like me, you're a massive F1 fan then I'm sure you would love to own this item. Bid not just for the prospect of taking this amazing piece of F1 memorabilia home, but for helping the fight for life for the countless number of Cystic Fibrosis sufferers around the world.

Please note: Due to its weight, this item will be sent by Parcelforce 24 hour delivery. If you are located near to Essex and wish to collect this item directly, please contact me beforehand to arrange a suitable date/time. If you are outside of the United Kingdom, please contact me before bidding for the necessary postage cost.
