Fourteen (14) Globe customers are set to fly to Singapore to witness the 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Grand Prix at the Marina Bay Circuit from September 19 – 21, 2014 with exclusive access to the Paddock area.
In partnership with the Lotus F1 Team, Globe launched a variety of promos for its prepaid, postpaid, broadband, and myBusiness customers from which the winners were determined.
The lucky Globe customers will be treated to an all-expense paid trip to Singapore inclusive of flight and hotel accommodations, as well as premium Paddock Club passes which will give them access to the best seats to watch the race and pit crew in action.
With a Paddock access, they will also have the elusive chance to meet and greet with Formula One superstars such as Lotus F1 Team’s competing drivers Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean, reserve driver Charles Pic, and Deputy Team Principal Federico Gastaldi.
The Singapore Street Circuit is the 14th stop of this year’s FIA Formula One World Championship and is the only night race in the series. It is also hosting the 10th round of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, where the best sportscar drivers of the region are put to track test.
Moreover, happening for the first time in Singapore is the Masters Historic Formula One Championship, the ultimate F1 throwback bringing together 20 iconic and vintage F1 cars for race fans to see history in motion. Capping each day’s festivities are performances by international artists John Legend, Ziggy Marley, Robbie Williams, and Jennifer Lopez, among others.
“As our sign of appreciation to their loyalty to Globe, we are taking our customers’ speed experience a notch higher by sending them to what could be the world’s grandest celebration of speed,” says Globe Telecom Chief Operating Advisor Peter Bithos. The winning customers will also have the opportunity to have a meet-and-greet session with Bithos and Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu over an intimate dinner in Singapore.
After successfully headlining Globe Slipstream last August 30, an event that turned Bonifacio Global City (BGC) into a race track a la Grand Prix, the telco continues to bring the motor racing sport closer to the hearts of Filipinos. With over 4,000 fans watching, Globe Slipstream featured Filipino-Swiss F1 junior driver Marlon Stockinger performing an impressive driving exhibition in his race car and other activities showcasing how speed affects people’s dynamic lifestyles.
This year, Globe is celebrating one of its biggest milestones — the launch of its 100% 3G network in July and by the end of September, a 100% 4G HSPA+ rollout that will provide its customers access to a fast and seamless mobile experience.
Drawing the similarity between Formula One and the new Globe 3G and 4G network, Bithos shares, “Formula One is known as one of the world’s fastest motor sports. At Globe, we value speed the same way Formula One does and we would like to share this commitment to Filipinos so they can enjoy that same speed on their mobile phones as they live their fast-paced and dynamic lifestyle.”
Globe is the exclusive business partner of the Lotus F1 team in the country and telecommunication partner of Filipino-Swiss Marlon Stockinger, the first Formula One racer to have placed the Philippines on the F1 radar.
