Two months ago, Mark Webber put out a call to his fans to design a new helmet for him to wear at the 2012 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix. From charming crayon scrawls to polished professional designs, we saw a huge range of style and creativity in the whopping 1,118 entries received.
Mark reviewed each and every design to find a helmet that he would be proud to wear over the course of the race weekend and is thrilled to announce the winner of the Aussie Grit Helmet Promo is Zlatka Subotičanec, a 17 year old fan from Croatia.
Mark said ‘Zlatka’s design was full of energy and really caught my attention with the unique inclusion of the Australian flag into the colour scheme. I’m also pretty impressed with the cartoon version of me on the back, although he has a few less wrinkles than me…”
After personally looking at all of the designs, Mark added “I’m truly blown away by the number of people that have put in such a huge amount of effort in this promotion. We have had entries from all over the world, from young and old and from all types of artistic talents! It was amazing to see all of the designs that the fans came up with and I’m really thankful for their efforts!”
As her prize for submitting the winning design, Zlatka has won the opportunity to attend the 2012 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix to watch Mark on track wearing the custom designed helmet. This includes flights and accommodation with thanks to Qantas and Swissotel The Stamford, Singapore.
With so many fantastic designs coming in over the past few months, we will continue to share some of the best entries with you on Mark’s Facebook page over the coming weeks. To stay on top of all future announcements, make sure that you like Mark’s Facebook page and subscribe to the newsletter.
