Want to get your photograph and name on a winning Formula 1 car?

Red Bull Racing can make that possible for fans who donate 15 euros to Wings for Life up until June 17, for inclusion on Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber's RB8 F1 race cars at this year's British Grand Prix.

The program is designed by Wings for Life, a charity striving to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. This initiative is open worldwide for anyone who wants to race with the Red Bull drivers at this year's Silverstone race - and support this cause.

To take part, go to, upload a photo, place that 15 euro donation to Wings for Life and you're ready to race, Red Bull Racing confirms. The team will match every donation made and 100 percent of all donations go directly to Wings for Life's spinal cord injury research projects worldwide.

Red Bull expects the 25,000 spaces to sell out before the mid-June final opportunity and then intends to make them a racing collage featured on both cars throughout the British Grand Prix weekend.

"I'm proud to be an ambassador for Wings for Life, which is relentless in its search for a cure for spinal cord injury," said Mark Webber. "I hope as many people as possible take part in this awesome event. Whoever you want to upload onto our cars--your mum, your dog--it doesn't matter, just upload a photo now and join us at Silverstone."

Reigning two-time champion Sebastian Vettel added: "I have been a Wings for Life ambassador for many years and it's a special cause. This is a great way for the fans to be able to join Mark, me and the team at the British Grand Prix and become part of history while supporting a fantastic charity."

Donors receive an automatic entry to a prize drawing that will allow them to attend the race with the Red Bull team, see the Faces for Charity cars and the team in action.

The Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation was founded by Red Bull CEO Dietrich Mateschitz in 2004, together with two-time motocross world champion Heinz Kinigadner. Their charity, Wings for Life funds world class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at accelerating progress towards a cure for spinal cord injury.
