Default Win a Drive at Sepang! The 'Michelin Pilot Experience' Contest...

"What are the chances of me winning, flying to Malaysia and driving a formula car on the Sepang circuit" - you ask?

Well, a BHPian Narayan won an earlier round of the contest! Yep, that's him getting used to the sequential gearbox:


Narayan's experience : link (Michelin Pilot Experience Contest - I Won!)


And GTO too was invited to participate a few years back. You guessed it, that's him getting a push off the line:

If that's sparked some optimism in you, here's what you need to do to participate:
• Answer simple Multiple Choice Questions (get 2 answers right in shortest duration) - LINK
< or >
• Write about the Best Drive of your Life (could be 5 - 500 words, 1 - 10 photos posted on your blog or facebook notes section) - LINK

- The top 10 will then go through a short telephonic interview round.
- You must be 21 years of age and hold a valid passport & driver's license.
- If all goes well, you'll be flying to Malaysia next month (September 2013).

But hurry... the contest closes on Monday 5th August, 2013.

A chance to get behind the wheel of a Formula car:


Expect some extreme cornering forces:


Then a few laps in the 2-seater with a pro driver behind the wheel:


...and finally, to end a hard day at the track:

I heard that the winners have been selected, though I'm not sure if they've been announced as yet.

But, I am not on social sites.
Is the voting/thumbs up thing required to win?

Thanks for the info!

Ace.
