Formula One fans had a cruelty-free surprise this weekend at the Melbourne Ferrari Challenge.
James Weiland drove a gorgeous Ferrari emblazoned with the PETA logo and PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies logo, which is used to identify cruelty-free products. This was the first time that the EMS Race Team raced in Australia. The team finished second in the challenge and first in every animal advocate’s heart.
“F1 weekend is always a great opportunity to spread the word about PETA,” Weiland said. “There will be thousands of race fans in attendance and hopefully we can encourage a few of them to search online and learn more.”
And spread the word the team did!
So wonderful, congratulations! Thank you for racing for animals! Bunnies love champagne and race champs. pic.twitter.com/WutCwJHBOQ
