Have you got what it takes to be a Formula Una?

For immediate release 23 November 2006


Have you got what it takes to be a Formula Una – beauty, glamour, intelligence and a passion for motor racing?

Red Bull NZ is looking for two ‘Formula Una’ to attend the 2007 Formula 1™ Australian Grand Prix which will take place at Albert Park, Melbourne from 15 - 18 March, 2007.

Formula 1 has definitely evolved over the years, but one element which had slipped off the paddock radar is back thanks to Red Bull. Formula Unas! Glamour, beauty and intelligence in the shape of 10 extraordinary ladies invited by Red Bull to every F1 Grand Prix race.

So if you have passion for motor racing and you think you have what it takes to be a Formula Una then apply online at: http://www.redbullf1.com/formulauna

Applications close on 31st January 2007 when an anonymous jury will select fifteen girls to attend an exclusive and unique casting event. From there two lucky ladies will be selected to represent NZ as Formula Unas. All expenses paid, they will fly to Melbourne, and over the course of the race weekend, will have unrestricted access to the entire paddock and the Red Bull Racing team areas, including the pit garage. They will get to meet key personnel from the team and best of all, the drivers, including David Coulthard, who have been known to take time out from their busy schedule to tackle a guided tour of the car with the girls in the cockpit. The Unas have a busy schedule, usually arriving at the track on a Thursday afternoon and soaking up the atmosphere throughout the weekend, meeting the media, taking part in photo shoots and attending the very high profile parties, always an important element in F1!

Then at every race, one Formula Una is singled out by a top secret jury to emerge as the Una of the weekend. This is no ethereal honour as it comes with the very tangible prize of a trip to the last GP of the season, where the winning girls from every country get a chance to meet each other.

Application forms available at: http://www.redbullf1.com/formulauna/
