Signed Sunoco Winners Flag up for grabs after every British GT round

Avon Tyres British GT Championship social media followers will be able to win a very special prize following each round this season: the one-of-a-kind Sunoco Winners Flag signed by that weekend’s GT3 and GT4 race winners.

Following each race weekend British GT’s Twitter followers and Facebook fans will be invited to win the unique prize by either retweeting or sharing the relevant championship post over a set period of time.

The competition offers fans an opportunity to own a genuinely unique piece of British GT memorabilia. Only one Sunoco Winners Flag will be produced per race weekend, which is identified by the inclusion of the circuit’s name and date. The winning GT3 and GT4 drivers will hold it aloft as they step from their cars in parc ferme or during the podium presentation, before signing it.

Motors TV’s live television coverage from five of this year’s seven race weekends will also provide a highly visible seal of authenticity, while Channel 4 and Motors TV’s highlights packages should also feature the flag.

“This is a great way of giving a part of the championship back to the fans,” explained Championship Manager Benjamin Franassovici. “Sunoco coming back on board as this year’s official race fuel supplier has opened up a few opportunities, and their branded chequered flags are synonymous with racing in America. But we wanted to go one step further and I think this is a fantastic way of doing just that.”

Anders Hildebrand, MD of Anglo American Oil Company who supply Sunoco Race Fuels, added: “The Sunoco Winners Flag is already used in the winner’s circle by many top championships, such as NASCAR and IndyCar in the States. It is therefore great news that British GT fans will now have an opportunity to get their hands on such an iconic piece of branding signed by British GT winners; it will be a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, at no cost, to own this very special piece of memorabilia. There will be a Sunoco Winners Flag issued at every British GT race weekend, so I'm sure that social media followers will get excited over this opportunity!”

The first signed Sunoco Winners Flag will be given away following this weekend’s opening round at Oulton Park. Keep an eye on @BritishGT and all next week for further details.
