The Partnership Gives Fans Chance To Spend The Night at The Williams Martini Racing Garage

Williams title sponsor Martini has kicked off the 2017 racing season with a once in a lifetime experience for motorsport fans. In partnership with Airbnb, the iconic Italian brand is celebrating the joy of racing by giving one lucky winner and a guest the chance to spend the night at the Williams Martini Racing garage at the Silverstone Circuit.

During the Martini and Airbnb experience the winner will receive a guided tour of the garage and be met by the teams Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams before they shut eye next to the 2017 Williams Martini Racing FW40 cars and 50 years of Martini Racing history.
