As part of the contest, conducted primarily through the Twitter handle @motorsport, one question about Fittipaldi and his career will be posted every day for 30 days. Questions will be retweeted via @emmofittipaldi. All participants will be entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win an exclusive chat with Emmo through a G+ Hangout and also win a pair of Evoke brand sunglasses. The sunglasses, remakes of the originals signed by Fittipaldi in 1972, commemorate the 40 th anniversary of Fittipaldi’s first Formula 1 World Championship title. Five grand-prize winners will be selected.

“This is my first online and social media contest,” said Fittipaldi, chairman of Motorsport.com. “I’m excited to introduce this contest as part of my ongoing work with Motorsport.com to leverage digital media outlets that enable me to engage, connect and interact with race fans all over the world.”

To participate in the contest:
  • Follow @emmofittipaldi on Twitter
