In May 2015, Johnnie Walker launched the Walker Wager campaign nationally. A wager was made between South Africa’s top racing driver, Gugu Zulu and his friend, two-time Formula 1 World Champion, Mika Hakkinen. The wage? That Gugu could train a person with absolutely zero racing experience, to drive a lap of Kyalami within 5 seconds of Mika’s best lap time. The person he chose was Vusi Thembekwayo – a businessman and public speaker.
