Fantom sponsors the motorsports duo Fittipaldi Brothers
We are thrilled to announce that Fantom is now a sponsor of brothers Enzo and Pietro Fittipaldi, the F2™ and F1™ drivers taking the world of esports and virtual auto racing by storm!
The Fantom logo will feature on Pietro’s European Le Mans and 24hrs of LeMans suit and helmet, and Enzo’s Formula 2™ suit and helmet through the 2022 racing season. Off the tracks, the brothers will additionally work with Fantom to introduce their numerous fans to Fantom GameFi and the fantastic opportunities it offers.
To kick off this important sponsorship, the Fittipaldi Brothers are set to drop an epic NFT collection designed by Rich, the celebrated urban artist behind iconic artworks produced for stars like the world-renowned football player Neymar. Audio for the NFTs was prepared by the musician Brando Boccardi.
Each of the visually stunning NFTs featuring Rich’s artwork and Boccardi’s audio will be redeemable for unique experiences and items. These items include autographed memorabilia and even a VIP experience for two over a Grand Prix weekend. Auctions for exclusive NFTs begin on March 23, with a direct public sale on March 25. The NFT sale will be managed by the NFT agency Infinity NFT.

With 4.5 million live views, the Fittipaldis’ Twitch channel is the largest in the USA and Brazil and second-largest globally. On TikTok, Enzo and Pietro have an incredible 16 million views and 4.3 million views on YouTube.
Now, F1™ and F2™ fans will have the chance to learn about Fantom through live-streaming of Fantom GameFi, Instagram stories, Twitter posts, and more. Fantom will also feature as title sponsor of all European Le Mans races broadcast on the brothers’ Twitch channel.

Fantom represents one of the most exciting technologies within blockchain, as it’s incredibly fast, user-friendly, eco-friendly, and cost-effective. We’re so excited to launch our first NFT series on Fantom, and to engage with our fans so directly. I hope this inspires more athletes to explore blockchain technology and leverage NFTs to deliver fans unforgettable experiences and valuable memorabilia. ‒ Pietro Fittipaldi, F1 driver.
