Fans will stand a chance to meet MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Driver Nico Rosberg up close and personal

pumanicoimage003PUMA®, the global sportlifestyle brand and Official Team Partner of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, will be adding sizzle to the hottest event of the year with an exclusive, one-night only event with Nico Rosberg in Singapore. Fans will get a chance to meet Nico, who has had a great season so far taking his maiden F1 win in Shanghai in April, when he hangs up his racesuit and trade his steering wheel to hang out with motorsport lovers at Singapore’s hotspot Butter Factory. It’s definitely a different kind of night out at Formula One’s only night race. Guests are in for an exhilarating experience with some unusual bar games and loads of PUMA merchandise to be won.


As a homage to the special guest, Butter Factory resident DJs will be mashing up Nico’s favourite tunes with club dance favourites. Guest will also enjoy Nico’s culinary tastes, prepared especially for the night.


Nico Rosberg said, “I’ve had amazing memories in Asia, from past Formula One seasons and especially in Shanghai this year. Fans in Asia are so passionate about our sport, and I’m really excited to meet and spend time with a number of them in person. I have to thank PUMA for this opportunity.”


For a chance to meet Nico in person, simply spend a minimum of SGD 100 on the motorsport range from 24th August to 18th September to obtain a sure-win scratch card. In total, 14 pairs of passes to see Nico at Butter Factory stand to be won, along with other lucrative prizes.


PUMA will also be holding the Red Cube F1 simulator challenge promotion, which will run from 11th to 17th September 2012. The top three fastest participants to complete the simulator challenge will be invited to meet and challenge Nico on 19th September. The PUMA Red Cube is a pop-up store which will be located outside Raffles City Shopping Centre from 11th to 23rd September and will showcase an eye-catching new collection of motorsport apparel.


Being the official ‘pit crew for style’ for the team and its fans, PUMA will give a first-hand look at the Autumn/Winter 2012 PUMA® MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS replica and lifestyle collection of footwear, apparel and accessories through a fashion show segment at the party.


The PUMA MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS collection is a range of premium products which reflect the prestige and flair of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team, designed both for fans supporting in the grandstands and for day-to-day wear. The sophisticated range of products is designed in the exclusive MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team colour palette and feature team logos.
