NOW YOU CAN HAVE AN F1 RIDE, TOO…
One of the tenets of F1 under its new ownership is to make the sport more fan-friendly. But, inevitably, the more money you’re willing to spend, the closer you can get. ‘Formula 1 Experiences’ was launched this year and is a high-end package that offers the best tickets, top hotels and Paddock Club hospitality.
The benefits extend to behind-the-scenes tours of the F1 paddock, meet ‘n’ greets with current and former F1 drivers, pitlane walks and a ride in the two-seater car.
For many years the former Minardi boss Paul Stoddart ran the twoseater experience with his ex-drivers during the weekend of the Australian Grand Prix. That has been scooped up to form part of the F1 Experience package and now takes place at most of the tracks across the calendar. Depending on the package and grand prix you want to buy for, prices range from £1,200-£6,500. • For more information, visit f1experiences.com
