Special Media Invitation - F1 World Champion Mika Hakkinen to Host Responsible Drinking Leaders' Rally in Montreal! - Results of Lewis Hamilton Challenge to be revealed



    MONTREAL, June 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Underlining the importance of designated
drivers, two-time F1 World Champion and Johnnie Walker Global Responsible
Drinking Ambassador Mika Hakkinen will host the first-ever Responsible
Drinking go-kart Leaders' Rally. Joined by guest celebrity designated drivers
such as Otis "Magic" Grant, Canada's luckiest race fans will take the co-pilot
position, on the Montreal police (SPVM) training track, in unique two-seater
go-karts to challenge the ultimate safe driving skill course designed
especially for this event by the SPVM's Sécurité Routière Division.
    A further highlight of the noon-hour event will be a special presentation
by Mika Hakkinen to SPVM Chief Inspector Réjean Toutant, head of the
department's Sécurité Routière Division. Mika will divulge the results of the
Responsible Drinking Challenge issued last Thursday by Vodafone McLaren
Mercedes racing sensation, and Grand Prix du Canada 2007 winner, Lewis
Hamilton. Lewis had asked all Montrealers and Grand Prix visitors to sign a
pledge board indicating their commitment to responsible drinking. Every
signature is being matched by a one dollar donation from Johnnie Walker to
Educ'alcool.
    The media is invited to join Formula 1 legend Mika Hakkinen, along with
Senior Montreal Police Officers who will serve as judges for the Rally,
Educ'alcool, and Urgences Santé in the excitement of this extraordinary safe
driving event created specifically to follow the Canadian Grand Prix.
