Surprise SURPRISE!
« on: February 09, 2024, 07:26:10 AM »
While having lunch today with a friend I had a phone call from the UK where it would have been midnight.
The lady asked if it was me and could I confirm my name she then went on to tell me that I had won F1.com's Bahrain Unlocked Competition!
So myself and a guest will fly to Bahrain for free with four nights accommodation, VIP tickets to the Paddock Club, Pit Lane access, Guided track tour, Paddock access, A photo safari and view the action from over the top of the pits.
Obviously I entered the competition but cannot remember it or if I had to answer any questions.
I'm astounded! WOW!!

Absolutely brilliant Andy, how exciting. I also entered that competition - its nice to realise there is a winner and it's not all marketing! Lol, I'll also be at the race but in the cheap seats! Have a great time.

I'll wave from the Paddock Club while try to not spill my champagne! LOL
I have now sent all the information required off and will wait on details to come through its quite exciting to do it this way.

Hi
Reporting from the Paddock Club!  :yahoo:
The access we have been allowed is really good even spending 15 or so minutes chasing to team member of Mercedes in their garage and hands onto LH's car. We were told that current F1 cars are worth $8 million each! WOW!!
We've met so many drivers and have been interviewed by F1.com which I am told I'll het the final edit so will share it here however embarrassing it is!  ::)
Who knows what today will bring other than more Ferrari Champagne.

Hi Andy B & Robem 64, hope you're all enjoying your visit to the Bahrain GP and get plenty of views of the action, it looks a pretty tight Quali session ahead.

Hope you've both done your GG picks, easy to forget with all the excitement of the build up at the track, pole pick closes in about an hour.

GG selections done although I doubt I'll be any wiser than if I was at home!
Today I am doing a track tour on the back of a truck, as do the drivers, and we are being recorded while doing it which will be out on F1.com at a later date but I will get the edit and share it on here however embarrassing it is! LOL
