Design Sebastian Vettel’s Helmet, Win a Trip to the US Grand Prix

Red Bull F1 German GP 2013

Here’s a cool contest for Formula 1 fans: Infiniti is giving away a round-trip excursion for two to attend the United States Grand Prix in Austin, TX. The competition is open for anyone interested in designing Sebastian Vettel’s helmet for the US GP, and the winner gets an all expenses paid flight to and hotel stay in the city for two people, as well as food and beverage expenses and access to the VIP Paddock Club at the Circuit of the Americas. Vettel will apparently wear the created helmet during practice and qualifying sessions but not for the GP itself. Infiniti will also give the winner cash to pay for taxes of the package, which is valued somewhere around $12,000, making the entire trip more or less free. Seeing as how much of the driver’s helmet is covered by sponsor logos, entrants only have the spaces above and below the Red Bull logos to work with. The contest is perfect for American fans of Formula 1, who packed the track last year at CotA’s inaugural F1 race.

The race will be held on November 17. Cutoff for the contest is Sunday, September 29, so get to designing!

Entry rules and the submission form can be found on the official site.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
