Bridgestone Club46 - 1st Contest Winners Meet Valentino RossiBridgestone Club46 Winners

For European fans of Valentino Rossi, the Bridgestone Club46 is the ultimate contest. Why? Two winners get to meet the nine-time World Champion at a MotoGP event.

The first Club46 winners were announced this past weekend at the Le Mans MotoGP – Marcin Lewandowski of Poland and Séverine Milet of Belgium. Both were allowed to bring a single guest, also, to meet Movistar Yamaha’ MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi.

Bridgestone says Marcin, Séverine and their guests were provided with paddock passes allowing them to get behind the scenes at the famous Le Mans circuit. They were met by Bridgestone staff and taken to meet their idol, Valentino Rossi, who signed autographs and posed for pictures with them. The winners were also able to visit the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP garage and get up close to Valentino’s Yamaha M1 bike.

“We entered the competition last year and didn’t win. This year we tried again and I can’t believe we won. I still didn’t believe it until the tickets arrived! We were shaking when we met him, it was amazing,” Lewandowski says.

Milet was just as excited – “We are huge fans of Valentino. My boyfriend is from very close to Tavullia where Valentino lives so we have always been fans. We were very surprised to win, I couldn’t believe it. The organization was perfect and very professional. Meeting Valentino was amazing; I had stars in my eyes. Thank you so much to Bridgestone for this amazing experience.”

The winners of the Club46 are selected after correctly answering Valentino Rossi themed questions on the Bridgestone Club46 website.

For the first prize draw there were a total of 46 prize winners, the 44 runners up received prizes such as a Bridgestone podium cap signed by Valentino Rossi, an iPod Nano, a VR46 hoodie and other fantastic prizes.

Another competition is currently underway, and closes May 23. To enter, Tweet or Instagram your bike-related photos with the hash-tag #BridgestoneClub46. The top entries and the competition details can be viewed at www.beeneverywhere.eu/#bridgestoneclub46.
