WP pulled out all the stops when they enlisted the help of Mobil to promote the Mobil Service Centre programme at the recent MechanEx exhibition on 15th and 16th November at Sandown Park.
Mobil kindly provided both the Lewis Hamilton F1 show car and a F1 race simulator for visitors to enjoy.
Getting the car into the venue proved to be a challenge. Zet Norman Group Marketing Manager for WP commented: “We arrived early to get the car into the venue, but still had to navigate a small hill. My heart was pounding as the cars technical team rolled it down the hill!”
Over 100 visitors were able to enjoy the F1 track challenge simulator with the winners posting enviable times.
Mobil also provided a special guest speaker, Pavell Bialota; a Techincal Response Advisor who hosted two seminars and gave the delegates the opportunity to question how Mobil’s engine oil works with leading manufacturers. However the highlight for everyone was his experiences of what it’s really like to work trackside at F1 events.
