In conjunction with the Black Circuit Lounge – Brazil, JOHNNIE WALKER® is rewarding winning bloggers through a contest for exclusive and authentic VODAFONE MCLAREN MERCEDES™ gear and JOHNNIE WALKER® prizes; among them are bottles of Gold Label Reserve™, Double Black™ and Black Label™. Of course there are also a limited number of money-cant-buy passes to the JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge – Brazil.

So bloggers out there, hurry now and blog about how JOHNNIE WALKER is coming to town again in style. Remember to include your contest answer to the question below:

  1. Choose to record a Video Log (Vlog) between 20-60 seconds long expressing how you would match the style and sophistication of JOHNNIE WALKER® with the energy and glamour of Brazil (optional)

Tell us in writing how you would match the style and sophistication of JOHNNIE WALKER® with the energy and glamour of Brazil in not more than 150 words.

Note: Be sure to include these words: “Step Inside the Black Circuit Lounge with JOHNNIE WALKER® for an inside access into the style and sophistication of the world of Formula 1™”

For example, you could choose to show/tell us how you would dress for the JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge- Brazil, how to make an inspired JOHNNIE WALKER® cocktail or even do a monologue that could make it as the opening remark for the race party. The choice is yours. Impress us with your creativity and originality.

You must also include the next question below because JOHNNIE WALKER® will also be rewarding YOUR loyal blog readers with exclusive passes to the JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge – Brazil party. All they need to do is answer the question below on your blog.  So remember to prompt your readers to comment to have a chance to party with you!

  1. Name a Malaysian public personality who you think epitomizes the meaning of “Keep Walking” and in 75 words or less, describe how this person inspires you on your own journey of personal progress and determination.


For example, Tony Fernandes, in my opinion epitomizes the meaning of “Keep Walking”. Reason being, his bold – no quitting attitude brought Air Asia to where it is today; being one of the World’s best no frills carrier.  September 11 was believed to be the worst time to start an airline company, however Tony braved through the impossible and proved them wrong in the statistics by clearing debts and breaking even on the financial front in just three years.
