Winners of an exclusive Pirelli UK promotion were treated to a special tour round the prestigious Red Bull Racing facility in Milton Keynes last month.
Ten winners were given the chance to visit the factory where the F1 title winners are based after entering the competition, which was run through Pirelli Performance Centres.
Customers who purchased two or more premium Pirelli tyres at a PPC during September and October were entered into a prize draw to win an exclusive F1 experience package. The PPC branches with the most entries also received an F1 experience package for two of their depot staff.
Ben Flynn from Warrington was the consumer prize winner who was given a tour of the Red Bull factory.
“My Dad and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Red Bull Racing factory,” he said. “It was absolutely fascinating to be taken through each of the stages of the production process and have a chance to get close to some real cutting edge technology. Despite having followed F1 for almost 20 years it was a real eye opener to see this side of the sport.”
The PPC depots that had the most promotion entries, and so 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.
Both Ben and each of the winning four PPC branches have also been rewarded with two tickets to next year's British Grand Prix.
