Haas F1 Team’s 2016 USGP Ticket Contest #Haastin

The United States Grand Prix is right around the corner (October 21 – 23), and Circuit of The Americas has provided America’s Formula 1 Team with a pair of tickets to give away for the highly anticipated upcoming debut of Haas F1 Team on home soil:

Announced today via the team’s twitter account, the video contest winner will receive a pair of tickets to the upcoming USGP in Austin. Using hashtag #Haastin to enter, fans can submit their video via twitter (here’s a how to guide) and show the team their impression of a lap around the 3.427 mi (5.513 km) circuit.  COTA’s 20 turns include an elevation change of 133 feet (41 m), and feature some of the best corners in the Formula 1 calendar, drawing inspiration from Silverstone’s esses through Maggotts, Becketts and Chapel, Hockenheimring’s hairpin, and the infamous turn 8 at the Istanbul circuit.

 

 

Entry length will be limited to 2m 20s (max length currently allowable on twitter), and are due by this Sunday, September 25th, at 8:21pm EST.

So there you have it:  Do your lap in a French or a Spanish accent, or give it your best Santino Ferrucci impersonation if you’re going for a more reserve driver approach.  Channel your inner Romain Grosjean (#8) or Esteban Gutierrez (#21) and brake late, throttle early – may the best entry win.

As part of the team’s announcement, here’s a video to give some inspiration – good luck, and start your recording!
