Kevin’s press conference in Tallinn

07.03.2012

NB! Public autograph sessions on Thursday, March 8

Officially the media event was called “presentation cocktail of Kevin Korjus, our driver for the Lotus F1 Team iRace Professional programme” and Kevin was a big star of it. Then, to be honest, he barely speak a word during the press conference itself as Lotus F1 Team boss Eric Boullier and his colleagues introduced Lotus F1 team, Gravity Sports Management and iRace Professional programme. But after the official part Kevin was literally surrounded by reporters and they didn’t spare questions. Media interest was as huge as one can imagine in Estonia. All mainstream papers, webzines, TV and radio stations were present and even some journos from gossip magazines were spotted.

“I really want to say a big “Thank You” to the Lotus F1 Team for arranging this event in Tallinn, coming here and bringing a real F1 car with them. I know Eric Boullier has very busy times with less than two weeks before the F1 season start but he still found time to come to my hometown.”

Yes, a real F1 car in famous black-and-golden livery was standing in the lobby of Nordic Hotel Forum where the media event took place. On Thursday the car will be rolled to Viru Keskus, a large shopping mall in the center of Tallinn where all the fans can have a look at it. Plus Kevin himself will be present and sign autographs from 1200 to 1400 and from 1700 to 1930.
