AMV BBDO has created a digital campaign for Martini to help drive awareness of the brand’s pivotal role and heritage in F1 racing.
The campaign is a celebration of the iconic brand’s long standing passion for racing that it shares with fans, which can be traced back to its founders. It will launch with a film this week across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter announcing the opportunity for one lucky fan to win a one-of-a-kind, hand painted helmet designed by contemporary Spanish artist Kenor and worn by Felipe Massa.
All fans have to do to be in with a chance of winning is tell Martini what the joy of racing means to them via the social channels using #JoyOfRacing. The winner will then be selected from a shortlist on 8th Aug and receive a Williams Martini Racing experience in Spa, Belgium; flights, transfers and four nights’ accommodation; and the #JoyOfRacing helmet presented by Felipe Massa.
The launch film tracks the journey of the creation of the racing helmet from the inspiration to concept, design and production, highlighting the love and attention that goes into every stage. It also shows the audience what #JoyOfRacing means to superstar driver Felipe Massa to help spark ideas for entries, and gives full details of this money-can’t-buy prize.
Kenor was briefed to create a design that embodies the joy of racing. This design was then transferred to an F1 racing helmet by leading helmet designers JMD. The bespoke helmet is to be worn by Williams Martini Racing driver Felipe Massa at the 2017 Formula 1 Pirelli Belgian Grand Prix.
Racing is a sport MARTINI has been involved in for nearly 50 years across a variety of iconic liveries. The brand returned to Formula One in 2014 as the title sponsor of the Williams F1 team, aiming to make a new generation fall in love with the gioia di vivere - the Italian "joy of living" - that Martini brings to the racing world.
