Support Mark’s Return to Le Mans – And Win Stuff!

on May 23, 2014 2014 Season, Mark Webber News with 95 comments
FIA World Endurance Championship 6 Hours of Silverstone

24 hours is a long time, especially if you’re not sleeping and you’re staying focused, concentrating on racing a car with 200 km/h around a 13km track.

As Mark prepares to return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, how about showing your support and be in with the chance of winning a signed T-shirt by the man himself?

To enter, just send in a message of support – it could be a written message, a photo or a video; whatever takes your fancy.

We’ll put the very best on and Mark will choose his favourite to win the signed T-shirt.

How to take part:
Send your message of support to before 6pm GMT on June 1.
Include your full name and daytime phone number.

What’s up for grabs?
The winner will get one of the new Mark Webber endurance tees signed by Mark and the two runner-ups will receive a signed cap. We’ll get in touch with the winners to arrange getting their prizes.

    Best of luck, Mark. I’ll be watching as much of the race as shown on American TV, and pulling for you a Porsche all the way. It’s been a long time since the 917’s of my heyday. Give ’em hell, mate!

    Dear mark; I just wanted to pass along my best wishes as you attack le mans. To me, real racing has always been about the driver bringing the car right to the edge, and honestly, its a rare feat. Good drivers are consistent, great drivers make amazing things happen. This is where I have always seen you mr. Webber. Whatever that rare “it” is, youve got that, and the result is that you are a fascinating and entertaining driver to watch. Regardless, but please know that we will be cheering you on from massachusetts! Best of luck!!!

    Meeting you at Silverstone was one of the best moments ever. You are such a true gentleman and whilst we were talking other people were trying to distract you but you ignored them and just spoke to me. It was a wonderful few minutes for me. If I say I come from Devon you might just remember me? Enjoy your race, drive hard and come home safe. I am unable to come and see you, the chemo has started, but I shall be with you every turn of the track. Good Luck I know you can do it.

    Good Luck in Le Mans Mark. I was up at Silverstone for the Wings for Life run to support my fab friend Keith Jansz who is paralysed and paints by mouth…he and his friend nearly made it round the track :)…when I said ‘ oh wouldn’t it be fab if I saw Mark Webber ‘ and keith told me you were running the race in Australia…so you can imagine my excitement to see you in the distance running the race !!…I have always loved F1 and many years ago I use to play basketball with Eddie Jordans wife…and now I am a single mum to four boys who all love F1 ( just as well I did lol )…we were all gutted when you retired but we will continue to be a fan of yours and wish you all the best love Karen,Max,Harry,Daniel and Sam Boulton

    Mark, being from Canberra we always stayed up to watch you race. I personally really respect your retrospective view of your time at F1, and the way in which you left, at the pointy end, still getting podiums, i think the respect the paddock showed towards you is proof enough that you are one of the last gentleman racers. Le Mans will be tough, but who else to take it on and win it. Your the man, stay focussed and push hard. Canberra has your back

    Hi from Istanbul,

    The Founder of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk had said once:
    “I like sportsmen who are smart, agile and also well-behaved.”
    You have all of these qualities already.

    You have became a role model, and supportive. Of course, lots of your fans would love to support you back, I suppose…
    I don’ t write this message to win a signed T-Shirt.

    Well I remember when I was a young boy, 9-10 years old. My dad got me a playstation 2 and a game called F1 2001 I believe. I chose Mark Webber as my man in that game (driving for minardi!), and since then I have both been a F1 fan, and a Mark Webber fan. I always though Webber was an old man, until I watched a race with him (I believe he was piloting a jaguar at the time) and saw that he was a handsome young man!

    Anyhows, good luck in the 24hr race!

Your a true master, not only with your talent, but with your skill. I wish you all the best for whatever ventures you take. Oh one more thing.

    Hi Mark! I´m a guy from Spain that supports you since you started in F1. Since F1 is this bored (Red Bull supremacy has some fault on this) I decided to start following endurance races. Maybe, in a near future, you could be driving on these races with Fernando and his friend Antonio Garcia along-side you, I would love to see it (and you also do, we all know it). The best of luck for this race and the rest of the season. Hopefully your bad luck decided to stay with your German friend 😉
