We are delighted to announce that the winner of the GP+ Lifetime Subscription competition is Luke Freeman, who comes from a small town in Kent, in England, not far from the Brands Hatch racing circuit. Congratulations to him…
Luke seems quite excited by the result and says that it is “fantastic news”, which isn’t really a surprise considering that he not only gets a free lifetime subscription to his favourite F1 e-magazine, but he also gets this year for free, as we will be sending back his 2016 subscription payment.
If there are sore losers out there, we thought we would tell you exactly how the draw was made, to ensure complete transparency. In the old days, we would have written out names on bits of paper and shoved them in a big hat and then asked someone with impeccable credentials (a judge, policeman, vicar’s wife etc) to pick a piece of paper (without looking, of course). As we did not have a hat big enough, nor a spare policeman, we decided to use modern technology instead. In order to make sure that the draw was fair, and that the timing of the purchase was not a factor in the result, the people who qualified for the draw, by buying a GP+ subscription within the time limits announced, had their names put on a list, which was in alphabetical order, to ensure that the timing of their purchase was not a factor. Each name was given a number that corresponded to their position on the list and then the winner was chosen using the simple device of a Random Number Generator on the Internet.
Congratulations, Lucky Luke.
