They’ve only just launched the new Virgin VR01 car and already the team are off the the line with their first promotional stunt – you (as in anyone who wants to) can be given the chance to name Lucas Di Grassi’s and Timo Glock’s F1 cars for the entire 2010 season. Last year we all enjoyed the fact that Vettel’s Red Bull was called “Kate’s Dirty Sister” – great to see some proper personality and fun in the often technical and dry world of F1 corporate-ness.
So can you think of a good name for Timo and Lucas’ cars? Enter via Twitter by tweeting your idea for a name with the hashtag #namethevirginf1car – full details can be seen on the Virgin Racing website
Let us know you ideas in the comments below – and yes, before you ask we’ve submitted the name “The Badger” – it had to be done!
While we’re on the topic of F1 promotional stuff, Henri Lloyd, i.e. the clothing folk behind Mercedes GP are offering an ‘F1 Prize’ to their 2000th fan on their Facebook Page – give it a go if you’re feeling lucky!
