Las Vegas, Nevada, August 17, 2010 - Pat Clark Motorsports
would like to thank all of the fans that placed bids on the gear of AMA
American Superbike racers Chris Clark and Ben Bostrom to benefit Rett
Syndrome that recently concluded on Ebay.
The special edition leathers and bodywork made their AMA race debut at the Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca round of the AMA series and saw Ben Bostrom and Pat Clark
Motorsports score their first win in the American Superbike class.
The auction began immediately following the SPEED telecast of the race on Sunday
evening July 25 and concluded with over 2500 views and 60 bids on the gear.
“The feedback we received from everyone has been nothing but positive and we are
happy we could pull off this unique event. We wish the thank the Ben Bostrom and
Chris Clark fans who placed their bids and helped us do our part to support a great
charity and assist in finding a cure for Rett Syndrome”, said Team Manager Ron
Rett Syndrome is the most physically disabling of the autism spectrum disorders. It
strikes at random in early childhood, affecting little girls almost exclusively.
Currently there is no treatment beyond supportive care, however recently Rett
Syndrome was reversed in laboratory mice giving hope that a cure can be found to
help the girls and women with Rett Syndrome. First recognized only 25 years ago,
the prevalence of Rett Syndrome equals that of Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington’s and ALS
but is vastly under funded in comparison to those disorders.
