At the start of this month we launched a competition to all readers to predict who would be the first two time race winner in 2012.
The answer turned out to be Fernando Alonso, with his victory in Valencia, following on from the one in Malaysia.
The winner was Tim Rochford, from Maryland, USA, who was picked at random from the people among the almost 500 entries we had who went for Alonso. In fact Tim went one better and predicted the second victory would be at Valencia. Bravo!
He wins a very special prize. A new company has been set up by Nick Harris, one of the leading driver fitness trainers in F1. Combining advanced fabric technology and stylish design, HPE (Human Performance Engineering) Clothing is designed to withstand the rigours of intensive training, whilst still maintaining comfort and enhancing performance.
Harris has worked closely with some of the world’s leading athletes, including F1 drivers Mark Webber, Jenson Button, David Couthard, Eddie Irvine and Nico Hulkenberg, as well as Grand Slam-winning tennis players and Major-winning golfers. He has applied the systems and science already proven to accelerate peak performance in his clients, to create this innovative range.
HPE is so new, it’s being launched next week, but we’ve got one of Nick’s garments, which several F1 drivers have been using for training already, to send to Tim.
We will shortly be announcing one of the most exciting competitions we’ve ever had on JA on F1, which involves a very special trip to a Grand Prix later this season. Keep tuned for more details.
