By on

After the announcement earlier this week of a new partnership with Ring Automotive, there's even more good news for the Marussia Virgin Racing team today as we announce that we've teamed up with musicMagpie.

musicMagpie is a free-to-use website, the number one its field, that allows its customers an easy way to make money from their unwanted CDs, DVDs and Games. It has had great success in the UK and is now expanding globally; the most recent lauch has been in Germany. As well as pleasing customers, the company is also attracting industry recognition and the two founders, Steve Oliver and Walter Gleeson, have been shortlisted for the prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year award for their innovative way of recycling music, films and games.

The musicMagpie logo and branding will be featured on both drivers’ crash helmets for the remainder of the 2011 Formula One season and from the Canadian Grand Prix onwards it will also appear on the nose of the MVR-02.
