JA on F1 is delighted to launch a very exciting new F1 competition in partnership with Shell.
We are looking for a Fan Ambassador to go to Abu Dhabi in November, the week after the F1 Grand Prix, to have the experience of a lifetime at a Shell V-Power Network of Champions event at Ferrari World, then experience the Yas Marina GP Circuit and then report on the trip for this website.
If you can convince our expert panel of your passion for F1 and performance, you will be invited to travel business class to Abu Dhabi from London, stay in a 4 star hotel, ride on the fastest rollercoaster in the world and experience the famous Yas Marina GP Circuit in a high performance race car, just one week after the F1 cars have raced on it.
And as if that wasn’t enough, JA on F1 will run your reports about the experience!
In Abu Dhabi you will meet bloggers and social media gurus from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and the Philippines who have been taking part in the Shell V Power Network of Champions programme this season, going behind the scenes at Ferrari’s HQ in Maranello and at Shell’s F1 fuels laboratory in the UK as well as at a Grand Prix.

Your entry will be reviewed by an expert panel of bloggers and social media experts and the five most convincing and creative entries will be announced on October 16th – each of the five win a free tank of premium Shell V-Power fuel and a chance to take part in the final stage of the competition, getting a chance to create some content.

3. HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The competition consists of two stages. In the first stage entrants must tell the promoters [VIA THE COMMENTS BOXES BELOW] why they deserve to win and why they are as passionate about power and performance as Shell. Only one entry per person.
After the first stage, five finalists are announced who each win a tank of premium
Shell V-Power fuel (gasoline or diesel) and a chance to take part in the final (second stage).
The five finalists must record a 30-60 second film that encapsulates their passion for power and performance. All entries will be judged by the independent SVPChamps Panel.
All entries will be judged by the SVPChamps Panel and this jury will decide on the finalists and winner. The panel will base selections for both stages of the competition on a combination of creativity, passion and popularity and all decisions made by the SVPChamps Panel are final.
The panel consists of a group of independent motoring bloggers and journalists involved in the Shell V-Power Network of Champions who, throughout 2011, have shared an exclusive Shell V-Power experience which has taken them to Shell fuels laboratories, behind the scenes at a Formula One Grand Prix and to the home of Ferrari in Maranello, Italy.
The winner will be notified by Edelman (on behalf of Shell) within 5 days of the date of the jury’s decision.
The winner’s name, city and country will be posted on JA.com between November 1 and November 6 2011.
