If you’ve ever dreamed of spending the day at an F1 factory, or experiencing a Grand Prix from within the heart of a team, then we’ve got news for you: the Renault F1 Team will be offering motorsport enthusiasts unparalleled access this summer, with chances to attend official ‘Race Day’ events on a grand prix weekend and to visit the team’s headquarters at Enstone.

 

Hungarian GP ‘Race Day’

F1 fans are being offered a unique opportunity to join the Renault F1 Team to watch the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday 1 August.

It’s the chance to treat yourself or a loved one to a five-star hospitality experience at our UK headquarters. Not only will you be able to relax in the very building where the cars are designed and built, you’ll also get unrivalled insight and updates from the team as the day unfolds.

This special day will begin early with continental breakfast and a chance to browse the weekend’s papers. You’ll then meet an industry expert for a review of qualifying before a live audio link-up with senior members of the team at the track.

While you’re at Enstone, you’ll also have the chance to emulate various members of the team and live out some childhood dreams. If you always felt you’d be handy during a pit stop, this is your chance to get gloved up and change an F1 tyre in our wheel gun challenge. Or perhaps you want to see how you compare to Robert and Vitaly by tackling a lap of the Hungaroring on our F1 simulator game?

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, why not indulge yourself to brunch and grab something from the open bar in our Heritage and Communications Centre, home to Renault F1 cars past and present. After that, with a glass of champagne in hand, you can take your seat in our state-of-the-art auditorium for live and uninterrupted coverage of the race.

If you can’t be in Budapest in person, then this really is the next best thing, offering a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of an F1 factory and enjoy an unforgettable day with the Renault F1 Team.

The full ‘Race Day’ experience is priced at £175 + VAT per person. For more information, email Gaby Mills (Gabriela.Mills@uk.renaultf1.com) or call +441608 678000.

Full details of the day and prices can be found on our website 

Visit Enstone during MIA National Motorsport Week

The Renault F1 Team is delighted to announce that its Enstone factory will be open to the public from 11 to 13 August in support of the MIA’s National Motorsport Week. It will give motorsport fans the chance to take a rare glimpse behind the scenes to see what it takes to compete in the world’s most competitive form of motor racing – and to bring the sport closer to its fans by sharing our passion for Formula 1.

The open days will allow fans to tour some of the team’s cutting-edge facilities, including our award-winning Computational Aerodynamic Research Centre – the very building that houses our Supercomputer. After that you’ll be able to visit our Communications and Heritage centre for a close-up look at classic Renault cars from years gone by, including the championship-winning R25, as well as historic trophies and other famous memorabilia.

While you’re at Enstone, you’ll also have the chance to emulate various members of the team. In addition to our pit stop challenge, perhaps you want to see how your reactions compare to Robert’s on our BATAK wall? There’s plenty to keep you busy and prizes for the winner of each challenge.

F1 factories are rarely open to the public so don’t miss you chance to join us this August. However, tickets are extremely limited so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets cost £60 per adult or £80 for a family ticket (for 2 adults and 2 children under 16). 70% of the ticket price will be donated to the MIA Motorsport Foundation®.

All tickets purchased will also enter a prize draw to win six team caps signed by Robert and Vitaly.
