A festival of F1 in London - the first ever Race Week

F1 fans who're likely to be in or near London in the week before this year's British Grand Prix may be interested in Race Week. This is a brand new sporting festival for this year, which is taking place on Thursday 3rd July 2014, day and evening, at the Royal Artillery Gardens which is a six acre open site in central London.

Charles Pic and a Lotus were in London
recently to launch Race Week
It'll be an action-packed day, and a real treat for any F1 fan. This unique celebration of all things F1 will include:
  • Appearances by F1 stars and their cars;
  • F1 cars performing high adrenaline stunts for the attending crowds including doughnuts and burn outs;
  • Over 50 historic F1 cars including some of the world's rarest such as Ayrton Senna's 1984 Toleman and Michael Schumacher's 1992 Benetton in which he won his first ever Grand Prix; 
  • F1 simulators, as used by the teams, in which Race Week attendees can try to beat the times set by F1 drivers;
  • F1 memorabilia shopping and a luxury shopping village;
  • F1 driver autograph session including driver Q&A sessions; 
  • The F1 driver's cricket match (last played in 1974 with James Hunt and Niki Lauda among others);
  • Grand Prix Ball, the annual black tie spectacular attended by the stars of F1 - all in support of The Prince's Trust;
  • Black Ball Race Forum – an F1 business forum (in partnership with Sports Pro); 
  • Post British Grand Prix drivers' party; and
  • Invitation to young Londoners to learn about apprenticeships in F1.
So plenty going on in other words for the F1 aficionado...

Jonny Dodge, CEO of Race Week, said:

'We're really looking forward to launching the Race Week festival in London. The UK is often called the spiritual home of F1 and so it's about time an event took place where race fans and committed petrol heads can come together and enjoy some of the glamour, excitement and sophistication of F1. And, of course, we are delighted to be supporting the Prince's Trust as part of the Grand Prix Ball'.

  1. In reality, if Genesis 17:8 is to be taken literally as the word of God, the land was promised to ALL of Abraham's descendants - thus Isaac and Ishmael and all of their descendants are divine heirs. Consequently, the land has been occupied during different stages of history by Jews, Christians, and Muslims. With each having legitimate historical and biblical claims to the same land, the only practical option is for it to be shared.see more at-festivals in june 2016
