Lotus let loose around London for Race Week

The British Grand Prix is soon to be upon us which also means that the first ever Race Week also is nearly here.

Race Week is a brand new sporting festival for this year, which is taking place a week on Thursday, the 3rd of July 2014, day and evening at the Royal Artillery Gardens which is a six acre open site in central London.

And as the latest part of its promotion a Lotus, in the capable hands of Marco Sorensen, was let loose on the streets of London's Docklands around Canary Wharf. Here is the film below:

And here is a news report of the very same thing:

Race Week was also kind enough to invite me along to watch the filming. My photos of what was a fascinating experience are on my Facebook page via this link.

Race Week will 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...
