Way back in the year, we launched the biggest, baddest, Bullest competition we’ve ever run – the search for our biggest fan across the globe – our Big Bad Bull.
We know you are some of the most passionate and loyal fans on the planet, and we love you for it, so we spent many an hour holed up in a dark room at the factory, plotting and planning, coming up with our best competition yet – a series of fifteen fun challenges, all designed to test your imagination to the limit. And naturally, we also planned some seriously awesome prizes for the winner.
From your Daniel Ricciardo double fist pumps and your epic race day selfies, to your favourite moments from our 200 race weekends, you didn't disappoint! Your entries had us rolling around the garage floor with laughter at times, while at other times you had more than a few hardy members of the Team claiming they "just had a bit of dust" in their eye. We were knocked out by your brilliantly imaginative entries and it was a great experience to see the Team through your lens.
Who is the winner?
With so many strong entries, it was a tough challenge to pick just one winner but we did it. We hope you'll join us in congratulating Nick Cooper from Australia, who delivered some totally outstanding entries! Check out this entry below, which gave the Honey Badger a mile of smiles, while this entry about who his "F1 wingman was" melted even the iciest hearts in the Team.
What is Nick's prize?
As well as winning the highly coveted title of our Big Bad Bull, Nick will bag a whole heap of cool prizes, including a meet and greet at an Open House event with Daniel Ricciardo, Dany Kvyat, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey, together with a personalised 2016 Team kit and a mega goodie bag filled to the brim with cool items from our partners in excess of £3,000. He'll also receive a Big Bad Bull trophy signed by the fab four and to top it all, we're going to make him part of the team for an entire race weekend so he can experience a slice of the Formula One circus first hand. (We might get him making cuppas for the boys in the garage or ironing Daniel's shirts – if you're reading this, Nick, it's what all our VIP guests do, we promise). Nick will also be joining us at our HQ in Milton Keynes for an afternoon with the Team as he gets a VIP factory tour only fit for our Big Bad Bull 2015.
But what about the runners-up prizes?
Nick had some pretty close competition from more than a few of you and so we've selected a group of Big Bad Bull Runners-Up to receive some cool prizes for their hard work, including signed Team goodies. We'll be contacting all those who won runners-up prizes over the next couple of weeks, and prizes will be sent out in the early part of 2016, so watch this space!
What is next?
We hope you enjoyed the Big Bad Bull experience. We were thrilled to launch it and see where you all took it.
We leave you with a few more challenge entries from Nick over this season...
Thanks for being part of it and let's see if you can be our Big Bad Bull in 2016!
