Sidepodcast // All for F1 and F1 for all

Help Amy become an Uber fan // Hoping for a grand prize for the Korean Grand Prix

Published by Amy Fulton

After the events of the weekend where the power of F1 fans on Twitter saw me get into the paddock with Lotus and the Australian Grand Prix corporation for tours (blog post to come, I promise!) I’m back to ask for the help of F1 fans on Facebook.

I am in the running for the title of Uber Fan in an Air Asia Australia competition. The prize includes return flights to Korea with Air Asia for two people, paddock passes to the Korean GP including access to the Team Lotus garage for the weekend and accommodation for the duration of the race. A pretty excellent prize for an F1 fan, especially a Team Lotus fan, I’m sure you’d agree. And this is where you come into it. Perusing the other entrants it seems the majority want a free holiday to Korea, but perhaps don’t seem to be interested in the F1 part of the prize. We all know how frustrating it is when we see people who don’t know their Kovalainens from their Karthikeyans with those precious paddock access cards! I’m even the only person entered in the competition who is visibly dressed as an F1 fan.

The winner will also be blogging and tweeting from the paddock over the weekend, giving fans at home a glimpse into life up close and personal with Team Lotus. Wouldn’t it be nice to get this information from someone who passionately cares about the team and actually has some F1 knowledge not to mention experience in blogging and tweeting about this very sport?

So if you’re an F1 fan who would like to see another F1 fan get the chance to win this excellent prize, here is how you can help. First you have to go to Air Asia Australia and like their page. Once you have done that go and find my photo in the F1 Fanzone Uber Fan GP Comp album. It looks something like this!

Finally you just have to like my photo. Feel free to leave a comment as well, the more the better! Once you have liked the photo you can unlike Air Asia without affecting anything, although why you would I’m not sure, Air Asia are fantastic!

The competition is judged on two criteria: the originality and creativity of the photo, and the number of likes and comments on the photo. The entrant currently in the lead has over 140 likes so he is well ahead but I know the amazing power of the friendliest fan community on the internet could help get us a Sidepodfan reporting live from trackside in Korea.

So please, like my picture before Monday April 11 and tell your friends to like it too!
