Over 300 people from around the world are featured in the MoneyGram logos on this weekend’s team cars, continuing a customer- and fan-first approach from the first year of partnership
The logos are part of the weekend’s distinctive stars-and-stripes livery design that celebrates the home race for both brands
DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate the first anniversary of their partnership and title partnership announcement, MoneyGram International, Inc. (“MoneyGram”) and MoneyGram Haas F1 Team (“MGHF1 Team”) today unveiled one-of-a-kind commemorative logos that will spotlight the faces of customers and fans on the team cars as they take the track at this weekend’s Formula 1 Lenovo United States Grand Prix 2023 in Austin, Texas.
The logos feature the faces of 300 people who use MoneyGram and fans of MoneyGram Haas F1 Team from around the world. As part of the weekend’s distinctive stars-and-stripes livery design that celebrates the home race for both brands, each customer and fan is placed in their own star within the MoneyGram logo.
During a special moment today at the Circuit of the Americas, Evelin C., a MoneyGram customer based in the United States who sends money home to her mom in Peru, stood alongside the team as they unveiled the car livery for the weekend. Excitingly, she then revealed the final star on the car: her own.
Thanking Customers and Fans in an Unprecedented Way
MoneyGram and MoneyGram Haas F1 Team curated this stunning addition to the livery to show their appreciation for MoneyGram customers around the world, who trust the organization to handle their financial needs, as well as MGHF1 Team fans who cheer on the team each race weekend. More about some of the customers on the car can be found here.
“This weekend, we’re thrilled to have hundreds of our customers figuratively sitting next to the team’s talented drivers, sharing in the excitement as they take the track at our home race,” said Greg Hall, MoneyGram Chief Marketing Officer. “We truly believe that the people who send money home through MoneyGram are some of the most hard-working and deserving people in the world, so giving back to them through these specially curated, once-in-a-lifetime experiences continues to be incredibly meaningful to our team.”
