Pirelli names F1 Experience winner
Pirelli UK has announced the winner of its Formula One Experience. The top prize of tickets to the 2013 Formula One British Grand Prix and a trip for two to the Red Bull Racing factory has been won by Ben Flynn from Warrington.
The competition was run by Pirelli Performance Centres (PPCs) and entered customers who purchased two or more Pirelli tyres at a PPC during September and October into the prize draw. The top performing PPC branches also received an F1 experience package for their depot staff.
Ben was picked at random and in addition to winning a pair of F1 tickets and Red Bull factory tour, he receives official Pirelli merchandise. “As someone that has never really won anything in their life I was absolutely delighted to receive the phone call from Pirelli,” said Flynn. “My girlfriend and I are huge F1 fans and we are really excited about going to our first ever grand prix at Silverstone. I’ll be taking my dad along to the Red Bull factory tour which should be really nice having spent many an afternoon watching F1 with him as a child.”
The PPC depots that took in the most promotion entries and received an F1 experience were STS Tyre Pros in Huntingdon, Discount Tyre Direct in Worthing, Merityre in Witney and Jeffreys High Performance Tyres based in Warrington. Each of the four PPC branches have been rewarded with two places on the Red Bull Racing factory tour in December as well as two tickets to next year’s British Grand Prix.
“It’s always nice to reward our customers and our Pirelli Performance Centres who work incredibly hard throughout the year with some great competition prizes,” commented Pirelli UK trade and consumer marketing manager Catherine Kirk. “The Red Bull Racing factory tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m delighted that the prize has gone to Ben who is a big Formula One fan.”
