F1 fans win a piece of Ferrari history

Signed Ferrari shirts - thanks Shell V-Power!

Signed Ferrari shirts – thanks Shell V-Power!

Today was the day we gave away two signed Ferrari shirts to lucky Formula One™ – The Great Design Race  visitors.  We were not really sure what to expect so were thrilled that close to 130 people turned up!

The shirts, signed by Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa, and Kimi Räikkönen, were given to us by Shell V-Power and have a pretty interesting story  – you can read about in my previous blog.

To narrow the field a bit, I asked two questions: how many steering wheels are in the exhibition (11) and how many tyres (37).

Sean came up with the steering wheel answer and was sent home with the Schumacher shirt.  He has a Schumacher-signed Ferrari cap at home so all needs now is a pair of trousers for the set! Dan won the Massa/Räikkönen shirt (he was a lot happier than he looks below!).

Dan won by correctly answering how many tyres are in the exhibition - more than you may think! Copyright Te Papa.

No one left empty-handed though – the hosts gave all the visitors Ferrari model cars to take away! It was so successful that we hope to run another event soon so keep checking facebook , twitter and the blog for more chances to win.

And, if you are Welly this weekend, come down to Te Papa for an awesome F1 weekend of events featuring Chris Amon, Greg Murphy, and NZ’s A1GP car ‘Black Beauty’!
