The buzz of Formula 1® comes to London in July as the official F1 FanZone™ opens at The International Quarter, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the British Grand Prix.
All the racing action from Silverstone’s “insanely fast” track will be screened live on giant outdoor screens on 4, 5 and 6 July. In addition, the area will offer race fans and their families plenty of themed activities to add to the excitement, including:
F1® Drivers Autograph Session: Fans will be given the rare opportunity to meet with former and current drivers at Autograph sessions.
Podium Photo Finish: Climb to the top of an official F1® podium to have your photo taken with a trophy.
F1® Simulators: Employing the same technology adopted by teams training, a total of 16 linked Simulators will allow guests to feel what it’s like to be a driver while driving around Silverstone circuit. Some will even get the chance to race against real F1® drivers.
F1® Car Display: A selection of cars to get up close and personal with, including a Red Bull car.
Chill Zone & Live Music: Slow things down with a beer garden, pub quiz and live music. The official chill zone will play host to daily themed quizzes to test fans’ knowledge of the sport with winners receiving prizes such as signed memorabilia, driving experiences and karting experiences.
Pit Stop Challenge: If you’ve ever marvelled at the speed of pit crews and wondered if you would be able to compete with their lightning quick hands, then try The Pit Stop Challenge. Join a team and see who can change the tires of an F1® car the fastest, under authentic “real life” conditions, against the clock and other teams.
F1® Driver Fitness: See what it takes to be a pro by trying your hand at their physical conditioning programme. Fans will get insight into the fitness, diet, dexterity and reaction times of the elite drivers, from a team of support staff who are personally responsible for the training of the sports stars.
