Vitaly Petrov to visit Rostov-on-Don

Russian Helicopters Company starts its partnership with Caterham F1 Team just a few months ago. Despite such short term, it is clear already, that cooperation is not simply about placing logotypes to cars and drivers’ overalls. Russian Helicopters started a program of motorsport popularization in Russia. As a part of that program Vitaly Petrov will visit the city of Rostov-on-Don on August 3rd.

Rostov is known as Russian “Southern Capital” with more than 1 million inhabitants. Vitaly will start the day on Rostvertol plant, where super-heavy and military helicopters are produced. He will meet employees and take part in photo and autograph sessions. Then he will go to one of Children’s home and answer a lot of questions from young boys and girls – in turn giving them all special presents. Local journalists will also have a chance to speak with Vitaly.

In addition, all Rostov’s citizens and guests can also see Caterham F1 car. On 4th and 5th of August it will be shown at VertolCity trade center.

V.Petrov: “I enjoy visiting new places – both inside and outside Russia. I never was in Rostov before, so it is a big pleasure for me to visit the city. What is much more important – new program of Russian Helicopters Company gives me a chance to meet with fans and to introduce Formula One to them. I really like events of this kind and consider my visit to Children’s home as particularly important. I’ll try my best to make it as interesting for boys and girls as possible”.

Russian Helicopters’ program of motorsport popularization includes more events during this year. Vitaly Petrov will visit another cities and meet his fans all around Russia.
