UPDATE: THIS POST IS FROM 2010. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A CHANCE FOR SEBRING 2011 THEN SEE OUR POST WITH 3 GREAT OFFERS FROM FLYING LIZARD MOTORSPORT. Some of you may remember an article we published last December where we announced that FlatSixes.com entered into an agreement with Flying Lizard Motorsports naming our site as the first U.S. based Flying Lizard Merchandise Affiliate Partner and gave all of our readers a 10% discount on Flying Lizard Gear to kick things off. The response was so great, we're doing it again! Only this time it's different. Way different.
Not only is Flying Lizard offering a discount to PorschePurist readers on all their excellent gear (see the second half of this post for more details), they are offering our readers a chance at a private and intimate "behind the scenes tour" of the Flying Lizard Paddock. If you're a Porsche race fan and plan on attending this year's ALMS series premiere at the Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring then don't miss this chance of a lifetime!
Flying Lizard's Team Manager, Eric Ingraham, will lead a small group of PorschePurist's readers on a tour of the Flying Lizard Paddock for a chance to see what really happens as a world class race team prepares for one of the biggest races of the season. In order to keep the tour as intimate and detailed as possible, we want to limit the group to just ten (10). This way, not only can we tour the paddock areas, but we may also enter and explore the trailers*, view the cars, meet more of the team and possibly, just possibly some of the drivers (but no promises).
The tour will be on Thursday the 18th of March from 5:15 pm to 5:45 pm. If you are interested in taking part in this exclusive behind the scenes look, and plan on being at Sebring Thursday afternoon, then here's what you need to do. Simply respond to this post in a comment below letting us know you want to attend - make sure you fill out the form completely to include a good email address (Read this post for help on commenting if you need it). We will then randomly pick the winners and contact each one of you individually by Monday the 15th.
At first we were going to select contest winners from first responders, but that gives an unfair advantage to those of you who receive our newsletter via RSS vs. email. For those of you who do get PorschePurist via email, make sure you click through to the site to leave a comment on the post (don't simply reply to your newsletter email).
As the attendance is so very limited -and exclusive access to the paddock like this so rare - please, please, please only enter if you are 100% sure you can make it! If you have other questions just let us know.
Now about that discount for the Flying Lizard Merchandise
Last, but definitely not least, is a 10% discount on all Flying Lizard Merchandise. This discount is available to any and all FlatSixes.com reader between March 11, 2010 and March 18, 2010. Simply enter “PorschePuristSebring″ (it IS case sensitive) on the first page of your cart and the savings will be automatically applied!
Remember, the discount code "PorschePuristSebring" gets you 10% off all Flying Lizard Merchandise and is only good online. We recently received a bunch of Flying Lizard Gear and were impressed with the overall quality. Included in our bag of swag was a woman's hoodie for me and a couple of co-branded items for John.
What's co-branded? These items (such as the Casual Dress shirt and the Team Cap) are branded with both the Porsche Motorsports and the Flying Lizard logos. It's a great way to show your loyalty to our favorite automotive marque and racing team at the same time. We'll give you a full review on Flying Lizard Gear in our next post.
For now, enjoy the saving, good luck with the contest and I hope to see you at Sebring!
*The Fine Print: It's possible some areas of the paddock may be unavailable during our tour if their is any proprietary race set-up taking place or anything else that must remain behind closed doors for competitive reasons. Regardless, it will be a very exciting tour.
