World Champion Jorge Lorenzo asserted his authority in FP1 at the Gran Premio Iveco de Aragon, with Repsol Honda pair Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa behind him on the timesheet.

The form rider in the premier class at present, Yamaha Factory Racing man Lorenzo was determined not to let Marquez gain any psychological advantage early in the weekend and shot to the top at the end of the session with a 1’49.753 lap, to lead by just 0.008s.

ANOTHER CHARITY HIT —  There’s a new high seller! Lot 3001 is a 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II and the second charity car of the day and it sells for an astonishing $700,000.  There isn’t a dry eye in the house as Kimie Metcalf, an 8 year-old cancer survivor and patient at the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, talked to the crowd. “Doctors gave me only a 30 to 40 percent chance of surviving,” Kimmie said. “Well, here I am!” Every penny of the sale goes to Loma Linda. Tears flow freely in the crowd after hearing Kimmie speak.

The first emotional highlight of the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Collector-Car Event came just 15 minutes into our live coverage on FOX Sports 2. The Wounded Warriors Family Support’s 2012 Shelby Mustang GT500 SVT Super Snake sold for $500,000 to noted collector Don Damon, who won a $96.6 million Powerball jackpot back in the fall of 2009.

Wrapped in red, white and blue vinyl and driven through 48 states during a five-week driving tour, the car has the signatures of hundreds of individuals who support and respect the brave fighting men and women of our military.

Every penny of the $500,000 sale will go to the Wounded Warriors Family Support and help in its mission to provide support to families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations.
