Hot Wheels held a ceremony at Nuremberg Toy Fair to celebrate the induction of Nico Rosberg as a Hot Wheels Brand Ambassador on the 30th of January. In addition, the brand is also holding the Hot Wheels Team Challenge Stunt Show, in which pro-skater Stephan Pöhlmann will challenge two fans to a skate off on a custom Hot Wheels 50 Halfpipe.
