Airbnb x MARTINI

MARTINI – title sponsor of Williams Martini Racing – in partnership with Airbnb, is offering a lucky winner the chance to spend the ‘Night At’ the Williams Martini Racing garage the night before the 2017 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to wake up between the Williams Martini Racing F1 cars before they take to the track to race.

Access to the team garage is extremely restricted during a Formula One weekend so the lucky winner will be one of very few people to enter the inner sanctum of the team.  During the MARTINI and Airbnb experience, the winner will receive a guided tour of the garage and be met by the team’s Deputy Team Principal, Claire Williams before they shut eye next to the 2017 Williams Martini Racing FW40 cars and 50 years of MARTINI Racing history.

This money can’t buy experience includes meeting Felipe Massa and will culminate in the winners joining Williams Martini Racing for a racing experience of a lifetime which coincides with the team celebrating their 40th anniversary.

Felipe Massa, Williams Martini Racing driver said,

It’s amazing what MARTINI has done for racing since its return to Formula One.  They really understand the joy and passion of the sport – and celebrate it on and off the track. For me, the Williams Martini Racing garage has always felt like a home away from home and I can’t wait to welcome the winners at Silverstone this summer.

The MARTINI and Airbnb Night at the Williams Martini Racing garage is the latest in Airbnb’s ‘Night at’ series, which sees guests stay in iconic locations around the world. It is open to race fans from 27 April – 16 May, 2017. Applicants must be 25 age and over and a resident of the following countries only: Belgium, Italy, Germany, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom.

To enter participants must, in 100 words or less, submit a creative story explaining what they love about racing and why they should be the lucky one chosen to stay the night at the Williams Martini Racing Garage at Silverstone before the 2017 Formula one Rolex British Grand Prix.
