It is certainly no coincidence that a store 100% dedicated to Formula 1 has opened its doors in the capital of Normandy. Normandy, where Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly are from, the only two French drivers entered on the world stage for this 2022 F1 season.
At the end of March 2022, the Fans for wheels store opened in the Rives de l’Orne shopping center in Caen. Petra Hinault-Jambor, the manager, can now welcome her customers in the flesh, almost a year after launching the Fansforwheels.fr online store, from Maltot south of Caen.
A wide variety of derivative products
“On Fansforwheels.fr, there are official Formula 1, Moto GP and motor sports products,” she explains. She launched the site in the summer of 2021.
We offer team and driver clothing and accessories for men, women and children.
And the list of products is long: t-shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, caps, balls, figurines, plush toys, key rings, stickers, miniature cars, towels, bags, flags, cups, magnets, pens…
On the shelves, the Alpine, Red Bull, McLaren, Mercedes, Ferrari and AlphaTauri teams are represented. On the motorcycle side, accessories are associated with riders like Fabio Quartararo, Valentino Rossi and Marc Márquez.
The Hungaroring is not far away
Originally from Hungary, Petra Hinault-Jambor nurtured her passion for Formula 1 from her earliest childhood, thanks to the Grand Prix which takes place at the legendary Hungaroring near Budapest. “My passion is largely fueled by family. We watch the grand prizes together! »
A passion that comes to life in her shop, which she wants to see develop over the long term. “We are there until July for the moment, the time to really feel what the expectations of the customers are, before opening permanently in a premises, here or elsewhere. »
