​A taste of Formula 1 with INFINITI

Get out your lucky charms and whatnot because INFINITI is ready to give two of you a Formula 1 experience you're never going to forget.


Even though the Malaysian Grand Prix is all wrapped up, INFINITI is keeping the spirit going with their latest contest. Together with their 2016 partner, Renault Sports Formula 1, INFINITI is ready to fly two people to the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia Spain to give you a peek into the life of a Formula 1 driver. 

The circuit is a test track for most of the Formula 1 teams and also the host of many motorsport events. The winners will be put through the same physical fitness training as the main team drivers to show how fit do you really have to be to drive those machines at full potential for two full hours. 

Precious training on driving techniques will be given together with briefs and debriefs by the race engineers. I say precious because the chance to talk about driving and lap time improvements with any Formula 1 team is the equivalent of having the judges of The Voice personally teach you how to sing. 

The pièce de ré·sis·tance of the whole trip will be the moment you get to be a passenger in a two-seater Formula 1 car driven by either of the Renault team drivers. You can't expect them to let you loose behind the wheels of a 900+horsepower race car worth millions. This is the closest possible chance you can get to being in a Formula 1 car. Did I mention that all this is absolutely cost free for the winners? Lucky charms, please do your work. 

There are two ways to get yourself enrolled in the contest. The first is by test driving an INFINITI car at their Kuala Lumpur branch, get a picture of yourself in the car and upload it to the contest page on www.infiniti.com.my/contest. The photo with the most number of votes will win the contest.

Alternatively, you could just buy an INFINITI before the end of the campaign and multiply your chances by 10. The latter is a more expensive option but hey, people do crazy things for Formula 1. 

Infiniti will also be hosting a roadshow at the Empire Shopping Mall from the 5th to 9th October 2016 for you to get up close and personal with their cars. So this is the perfect opportunity to check out the Infinities and maybe purchase one to get yourself enrolled in the contest!

The time window to sign up is from the 1st of October to the 15th of November while the actual trip is from the 6th to the 10th of December 2016.
