Fanzone Blog:


Having blown the budget building the RB9, we’re a bit short of funds to cover the launch on – so, we’re looking for five bloggers to do our jobs for us.


It hasn’t escaped our attention that you’re (sometimes) an intelligent bunch, many of whom write thoughtful and insightful (alright analytical and opinionated) blogs both on our team and on Formula One as a whole. That said, we want to help give those blogs wiiings in 2013, allowing you to have your say right here in our Fanzone. And what better way to kick-start a regular guest bloggers feature than with the roar of the RB9? None? Okay then.


We’re inviting five guest bloggers to join us in Milton Keynes for the launch of our new car on Sunday 3rd February 2013. We’ll cover your travel (within the UK) and you’ll be chauffeured from the train station in a luxury Infiniti courtesy of our new title sponsor. You’ll then witness the RB9 launch and subsequent press conference. We reckon that package will give you scope for a fairly plump blog and that’s all we’re after in return – a 400-600 word blog on your experience to be received no later than 1200hrs on Wednesday 6th February 2013, in time for publication in our Fanzone before 12th February 2013.


To be in with a chance simply tell us in 200 words or less in the box below (remember you must be a Fanzone member to enter!) what you think it means to #pushtheboundaries. You must include a link to your blog with your entry and all entries must be received no later than 1200hrs on Monday 28th January 2013 – so act fast!


Winners will be notified on Wednesday 30th January 2013 and must be free and able to arrive in Milton Keynes on Sunday 3rd February 2013 at 1200hrs.


The winners will pave the way for regular guest bloggers throughout the 2013 season so stay tuned for further ways to push those blogging boundaries.


Well, what are you waiting for? Get pushin ‘em.
