Making History: Pierre Gasly Becomes the First Formula 1 Driver to Release NFTs for Fans
The NFT series includes four NFTs redeemable for one-of-a-kind experiences and exclusive merchandise. The first three commemorate the podium appearances that mark Gasly’s meteoric rise to the heights of motorsport.
Firstly, in 2021, Gasly took the podium at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. This race features the tortuous and unforgiving street circuit in Baku. The winner of this auction will be able to redeem the NFT for the helmet Pierre wore for the race and enjoy a meet and greet with the driver.
The second NFT centers around the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix. Gasly made his first-ever podium appearance after a thrilling race in which he held off Lewis Hamilton in a straight drag to the finish line. The winner of this auction will also receive a signed helmet and enjoy a meet and greet with the driver.
Then, the crown jewel is the 2020 Italian Grand Prix. In this race, Gasly became the first French driver to take the number one spot since 1996. So the winner of this auction will be able to redeem the NFT for a VIP experience for two people during a race weekend. It is indeed an ultimate fan experience because the winner will also receive a signed 2021 mini helmet and cap plus access to a meet and greet.
The first three NFTs will surely inspire a spirited bidding war, so the team will release an additional NFT set composed of 350 pieces the following day, October 22. Winners will be able to redeem their NFT for a signed cap and a numbered, limited edition t-shirt commemorating Pierre’s first NFT drop.
