THANK YOU!

Thank you for purchasing the “Greatest Grand Prix Calendar” 2021 edition. This is the second calendar that I have designed and produced and I’m really pleased with it. My name is Adam and I’ve been a Formula 1 fan since I was a mere 5 year old and my excitement for watching racing cars and following the stories around the pinnacle of motorsport is just as high now as it was back then.

I’m a creative at heart and wanted to put my passion for F1 to good use, so created the BoxBoxBoxCo brand as my outlet for taking on exciting projects with the aim to produce and share beautiful products that I love and think other Formula 1 fans will love and treasure too. I’ve always admired the photography captured by Paul-Henri and Bernard Cahier and after forming a partnership with Paul-Henri and working out a unique design for a desk calendar I’m thrilled to have people like you enjoying the product across the world.

So yes, thank you for buying your calendar, or if you have received it as a gift, give the sender a big hug, they chose well 🙂

If you like, you can sign up to receive occasional updates from me via the BoxBoxBoxCo newsletter here, or follow me on Instagram @BoxBoxBoxCo to see what we’re up to, new product ideas, special offers and more.

Here’s to a good year – 2021, can’t be as tricky as 2020, surely!?

Regards,
Adam
