I know this has been mentioned on the Mclaren members forum but thought I would see if anyone knew if the other F1 teams did similar:
Mclaren charge £55 for yearly membership (which I dont mind as a die hard Mclaren Fan) However they then do competitions fo us members with some great prizes but they then expect you to pay another £55-95 if you win fo the prize!
Surly other F1 teams members dont have this problem?
Not sure about other teams but the Red Bull community is free to join and they run competitions all the time, we’ve won victory posters and autograph cards before. They run competitions for some amazing things like goes in the simulators and things.
Lets not forget for the £55 membership you get a exclusive t-shirt and cap (a t-shirt and cap in the shop is £55)… on top of that you get a snazzy membership card and a pair of photos… okay, the card and photos are a so what… but then you also get a £30 voucher for the e-shop and 15% off anything you buy during your years membership.
Sounds like great value to me… though to pay for a prize seems a bit wrong.
I ‘won’ the MTC tour from last month and had to pay an additional £55 to Mclaren…….. and this month they are doing another comp that invites you to celebrate with them at the MTC. However it says that you will need to pay £95 if you win!
