MIRANDA: The Shaver Shop in Sydney’s Miranda has sold the winning Philips HQ7290 shaver as part of a Fathers’ Day 2006 promotion in conjunction with Philips and the WilliamsF1 team.
The two winners of the ‘Pit Lane Sweepstake’ competition, who were announced on November 30, will travel to the Monaco Grand Prix in Europe.
The winning Philips HQ7290 shaver was purchased from the store in Miranda as a Fathers’ Day gift. According to the winners, the receiver has been using an older model of Philips shaver, which was purchased from the same Shaver Shop Miranda store, for the past 15 years.
Shaver Shop Miranda owner, Ashley Gould, presented the winners with a giant novelty plane boarding pass on 30 November, as well as some Philips and WilliamsF1-branded merchandise including a wind breaker jacket, two polo tops, a team shirt and a cap.
The total prize, which includes two airfairs, accommodation and spending money, is valued at over $16,000.
