Prost to sell 2000 chassis on-line for charity
The number 1 chassis, driven by both Frenchman Jean Alesi and young German Nick Heidfeld this season, will be auctioned on Yahoo!, a sponsor of the French marque.
The proceeds from the sale of the car, which will be minus the Peugeot engine used in 2000, will be given to UNICEF.
"I am delighted that Yahoo! and Prost Grand Prix have launched the first-ever Formula One car auction online" said team-boss Alain Prost.
"I am also very proud that, thanks to this initiative, my team will be able to make a contribution to a worthy cause, by donating the proceeds from the auction to UNICEF."
The bidding will begin on October 19 and continue for ten days until October 29.
