InstaForex at 2014 Russian Grand Prix
October 12, 2014 Russia hosted the Formula 1 Grand Prix the first time in history of the high-profile motor race. InstaForex is the official partner of the AngloRussian Marussia F1 Team. This event was like a home race for Marussia. So, InstaForex fairly enjoyed the advantage of the partnership and witnessed the historical race. Besides, the company provided its clients with an opportunity to spend the time of their lives. By the way, it was Max Chilton’s race car with InstaForex logo which started first at the qualification stage thus opening the official part of the first Russian Grand Prix. However, Max was not able to show his ultimate result at the Grand Prix in Sochi. Nevertheless, Marussia F1 Team met the challenge securing its 9th rank in the overall standings.
On the whole, the Grand Prix in Sochi was orchestrated at the top level making good use of the Olympic village. The stateoftheart infrastructure of the Olympic village was supplemented with the superb race circuit a few steps from the Grand Ice Palace which used to be a venue for the Olympic hockey final. All racers including Lewis Hamilton, the winner from the U.K., were lavish with praise for both the circuit and arrangements. Moreover, several thousands of fans and VIP guests were delighted with the race, in particular Russia’s President Vladimir Putin who awarded the winner.
Importantly, the prestige sports event allowed InstaForex to gain a benefit pursuing its own aims. First of all, the F1 tournament is a perfect event for business meetings. So, Roman Tsepelev, the Strategic Development Director at InstaForex, and Andy Webb, Marussia CEO, discussed further cooperation between the brokerage company and the racing team. Second, InstaForex held a prize draw for its clients. The prizes were premium trips to Sochi including air tickets, accommodation as well as VIP tickets for the F1 Grand Prix and the concert of Lenny Kravitz, a famous American singer. When choosing a winner, one thing was obvious. A Russian trader should be awarded a trip to the first Russian Grand Prix. By the way, 10 InstaForex clients from Malaysia were able to attend the F1 Grand Prix in Malaysia earlier this year. As for the other criteria, the prize draw was held among active traders operating with InstaForex for over 3 years. So, Fortune smiled on Igor and Konstantin.
