Motor Sport - Goodyear Competition

Goodyear Eagles Fly with the Eagles

Welcome to the final round of the Motor Sport – Goodyear competition in which the prize is a fabulous weekend for two at the Belgian Grand Prix on the weekend of August 24/25th.

Not only will the lucky winner receive two tickets for the Grand Prix at the fabulous Spa circuit, but they will be flown to Brussels on Friday, 23rd August, be put up at the 5 star Sheraton hotel, view the race from the Raidillon Grandstand and then be flown back to London on Monday, 26th August.

If ever there was a way to watch a Grand Prix, this has to be it.

Unhappily there can be only one winner, but despair not, for there are hundreds of pounds worth of consolation prizes. Thanks to the generosity of Goodyear there are 10 rally jackets, 20 sweaters and 50 books, all commemorating Goodyear’s 250 wins in Grand Prix racing to be won.

All answers will have to be received at Motor Sport – Goodyear Competition, Standard House, Bonhill Street, London EC2A 4DA, by first post Monday, 12th August.

Entrants must answer all questions using the forms provided or photocopies, but only one entry per household please.

Unfortunately for obvious reasons the competition is not open to employees of Teesdale Publishing Co Ltd or of Goodyear Great Britain Limited.

The final question will be a tie-breaker and the judge’s verdict will be final. No correspondence will be entered into concerning the results. Even if the competition at first glance looks a little difficult, give it a go. You will be surprised just how many you can answer with just a little research. Good luck to everyone who enters.
