Here’s how to be in with a chance of having your name featured on the halo of the FW43B in Monaco
Williams Racing is getting set to celebrate its 750th Grand Prix next weekend in Monaco – becoming the third team in the sport’s history to participate in this many races.
The team will be hosting a multi-channel campaign to highlight the team’s journey since being founded by Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head in 1977.
A statement released by the team read; “Since its inception, a core foundation of Williams Racing has been its people.
“When you join the team as a driver, a staff member, or a supporter you become a part of the Williams story.
“With only Ferrari and McLaren having participated in more Grands Prix events, Williams will celebrate the anniversary by encouraging supporters, employees and other sporting personalities to remember the race or the moment in their lives they began following and supporting Williams and then asking a simple question: What’s your race number?
“After finding out their race number using a bespoke calculator on the Williams website, 100 lucky fans will see their name carried on the halo of the FW43B over the Monaco weekend.”
Speaking about the incredible milestone, Jost Capito, CEO of Williams Racing said:
“Williams has always been about people; those that work for the team, along with our fans from all across the world.
“This milestone is about celebrating everyone that has been on this journey to 750 Grands Prix and will continue to be on this journey with us, as the team heads into a new era.
“We’re excited to share some of the incredible stories that have made the team what it is today and hear from supporters who have their own amazing tales of what Williams means to them.”
For a limited time, fans will be able to get their hands on limited edtition Williams Racing Umbro 750 Grands Prix merchandise and special Automobilist posters that will be on sale to mark the celebration.
At the Monaco Grand Prix itself, the FW43B will carry a special ‘750 Grands Prix’ logo, and each team member’s race count will feature on their individual kit.
