London 2012 organisers are spreading Olympic-fever to the world of personalised registrations, but introducing a special Olympic-themed range of number plates.
Motorists will be able to show their support by buying one of the special number plates this June when they go under the hammer.
“There is a small but enthusiastic band of drivers who like to have distinctive number plates,” explained Paul Watters from the Automobile Association.
“The Olympics excite most people and the plan is for the legacy to live on.
“These number plates are another small way of people doing that.”
Number Plates such as GO11 DEN, GB12 ROW and RUN 100M will be available from 7 of June.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has been made an official licensee for the London 2012 Olympic games.
The three-day auction will see 1,750 registrations go under the hammer at London City Hall, London, over the 7th, 8th and 9th June.
Those lucky enough to win one of the number plates will also receive an official box to accompany the plate.
The event will see almost 400 Olympic-themed registrations go up for auction.
Mr Watters added: “We are happy the sales are permitted as there is an appetite for them and for some people a reminder of the event may be something they want to cherish.”
Locog commercial director Chris Townsend revealed: “We are delighted to welcome the DVLA as the latest addition to the London 2012 merchandise programme.
“I’m sure that the plates will really strike a note with fans of the Games.”
EN61 AND will go into the auction with a price of £2,000, GO11 DEN has a price of £2,500 and 2012 GB is listed at just £1,500.
2012 O, 2012 A, 2012 B and 2012 C are all going up for auction at an Olympic-themed price of £2012.
