Formula One is the highest level of international car racing. F1 cars are purpose-built, capable of extremely high speed and run on designated race tracks. They compete for the world championship by taking part in a series of important races, called “Grand Prix” in many countries. Foster, one of Australian most popular brewers, is the F1 official beer of the Grand Prix.
In cooperation with its key outlets in Ho Chi Minh City, Foster’s Vietnam has been organizing Formula One live reports from March to August 2006 at these places.
