Bridgestone, the world’s largest tyre manufacturer and Official Tyre Supplier to the MotoGP™ World Championship is pleased to announce the winners of the incredibly popular “Meet & Greet Rossi” competition on www.beeneverywhere.eu. After 6 weeks of fierce competition over the summer, 1 winner emerged from the original field of over 21,000 participants who was rewarded with an exclusive meet & greet session with racing legend, Valentino Rossi at the Misano Grand Prix. The top 10 scorers also won an iPad Mini.
Over 21,000 people from 16 countries around Europe took part in the Bridgestone Everywhere racing game at www.beeneverywhere.eu between 5 June and 18 August 2013. Of them, close to 5000 submitted their high scores for a chance to win tickets to the San Marino Grand Prix on 13-15 September complete with an exclusive Meet & Greet session with multiple MotoGP™ world champion, Valentino Rossi.
Yannick Francois from France amassed an impressive 3,091,060,538 points in the online motorcycle racing game, placing him top of the ladder. Offered two tickets to the Misano Grand Prix, Yannick decided to bring along friend, fellow competitor and ninth placed Hugo Camus also from France. The duo were subsequently flown in style to Misano to mix it with some of the biggest names in motorcycle racing and, of course, take in all the action trackside from the Bridgestone suite.
