Red Bull seeking aspiring reporter for Wales Rally GB

Red Bull Reporter offers one lucky and talented rallying aficionado the opportunity to interview Sébastien Loeb on Wales Rally GB
Red Bull are running a nationwide initiative to find the best budding music, culture and sports writers, filmmakers, photographers and presenters, offering them the chance of a lifetime – to use their skills and indulge their passions as a 'Red Bull Reporter' and have their work published and showcased to the world.

The most talented young media-makers could be selected for one of a number of exciting assignments – each designed to give them an amazing experience as a working member of the media – covering world-class sport, cutting-edge music and innovative culture events. Better yet, Red Bull events happen all around the globe – meaning reporters will be dispatched out there to cover them!

The first assignment for which a reporter is being sought is the British round of the hotly-contested World Rally Championship (WRC), Wales Rally GB – with a unique opportunity to interview legendary reigning four-time world champion Sébastien Loeb, a man who enters the event sitting just one point behind Ford rival Mikko Hirvonen in the standings in his bid to make it a record-breaking five titles in succession. With the prospect for the weekend that of winner-takes-all, a thrilling, nail-biting finale is surely in-store.

The interview will take place ahead of the rally on Thursday, 22 October, and the winner will be a flexible, young writer who is prepared to put in some research on the Frenchman and the world of rally driving in general to produce a series of questions to ask Loeb in the one-on-one interview.

The selected winner will also receive a privileged pass to gain access to the service and hospitality area in Cardiff Bay on Saturday, 24 October, to witness first-hand the frantic work carried out on the cars in-between stages.
