MotoGP prize offered for Stanley's Big Hit Challenge

Published: 30 July 2013
Following the success of last year's event, Stanley is once again hosting its Big Hit Challenge at the upcoming British MotoGP at Silverstone.
Running for the duration of the Silverstone race weekend, August 30-September 1, the Big Hit Challenge requires participants to drive eight 4in nails into a 6 x 6in block of timber with a Stanley high velocity hammer, in the fastest time possible. Last year, Brendan Gent, a joiner from Sunderland, won the challenge in just 9.7 seconds and will be returning to defend his title.

Participants will be seeking to win the all-expenses-paid trip to watch the Stanley-sponsored Monster Yamaha Tech3 team at the final race of the 2013 MotoGP season in Valencia, Spain.

As part of this prize package, the winner will not only watch the race from the grandstand seating area, but also have access to the main race paddock. They will receive an exclusive tour of the Yamaha Tech3 garage and access to its official hospitality area. Hotel accommodation will be provided, as well as £200 spending money.

Stanley will be reporting on the competition live at throughout the weekend, so 'like' the page to keep up to date with the top scoring times and winners.
