Going to Silverstone? Win a free Fanvision handheld for the weekend | James Allen on F1 – The official James Allen website on F1

It’s been a busy few days in terms of helping to connect F1 fans to the sport, with the FOTA Fans Forum on Thursday and the JA on F1 pit stop competition, which took place this afternoon and about which I will post later. The winning time was a reasonably competitive 5.09 seconds. More of that anon.

Across the various activities, we’ve given away a variety of British Grand Prix tickets which means that in total we’re sending 14 fans to Silverstone who would not have been able to go otherwise and we hope that they will enjoy the sights and sounds of the F1 action close up. We hope to bring you some content reflecting some of their experiences after the weekend.

Lastly we’ve got an offer from Fanvision, formerly known as Kangaroo TV, for a free rental of one of their new G3 units for this weekend.

For those not familiar with it, the Fanvision is a hand held device on which you can follow the action while at the track, it has timing and leaderboards as well as some other vital content.

Fans, sponsor guests and even many members of the media use it to follow up to eight onboard cameras, instant replays, interviews, official timing, team and driver data, stats and analysis, pitstop timing and team radio communications.

It also has the BBC Radio 5 Live commentary from Crofty and Ant Davidson.

I use one at the track, especially during practice sessions if I go out onto the circuit to view the cars close up, somewhere like Turn 8 in Turkey or Pouhon at Spa.

You can buy or rent them at the track, but we’ve got a free rental to give away this weekend. So if you’re going to be in Silverstone and you want to be in with a chance please let us know in the comments section and we will pick one fan at random to get the Fanvision unit.

* STOP PRESS – We’ve had a ballot and the winner is #76 Ian Joyner. We’ll be in touch via email and will get Ian to post about his experiences with the Fanvision unit.

    James, thanks for all the insight given through your website and tweets. Let’s hope the British GP is a close and entertaining race. And of course, a Fanvision console would go down very well with my 15 year old daughter who is attending her first ever motor race this weekend at Silverstone.

    Hi James

    Would love to win a free Fanvision rental!

    I took my grandfather to his first GP at Silverstone last year and whilst he loved the race, he did not have a clue what was going on; the big screen was too far for his eyesight, and the trackside commentary not loud enough for his ears.

    We’re going again is year and I think this would really help boost his experience!

    Loving the new look website.

    Should be an awesome weekend! I’ve decided on Grandstand seats at Village this year, usually I sit at Luffield. Thought I’d give it a try, especially with the start line moving!

    Looks like it’ll be a little damp though!

    Hi James,

    I’m heading up to Silverstone with six friends after work tomorrow for the whole weekend. It’s our first British Grand Prix. A Fanvision unit would certainly enhance the experience for sure.

    They’re quite sociable devices – I found myself making a few new friends when I used one at Monza a few years back.

    Excellent evolution of the website. Keep up the good work.

    We used FanVision (or Kangaroo TV, as it was known) at last years Belgium Grand Prix and it was F A N T A S T I C. If you’re paying a lot of money for tickets, an extra £60 is worth it for the amount of additional information you’re provided with. Plus it works for all support races!

    Now, a little suggestion. We’re only going to Silverstone for Friday practice so I was a little disappointed to find out FanVision only offers a 3-day weekend rental. £60 for one day’s usage is too much. Perhaps you could look at offering a 1 or 2 day package as an alternative? I’d happily pay £20-25 for this service and I’m sure others would too!

    It would make it far easier to follow, especially this year with the many pit stops we have seen, and the screen at Luffield is so far away I had to use a telephoto lens to see it properly last year.

    Not for me, as a trip from Brisbane is a bitt too much in this economic climate – but my cousin is doing the whole camping experience on a tight budget – he’s mad keen (we nearly got run over by Michael Schumacher driving an Alfa Romeo hire car in the paddock when I was there with my cousin in 2000). So this would give him a real thrill.

    Fanvision is an absolute necessity. I went with a group of friends to Spa last year, and initially I chose not to have one. I was able to get hold of one on Sunday and I was amazed at the difference it made to the experience.

    I can’t say enough how much you need this to be able to follow the action, but if you want to read a little review of our experiences you can do so here: http://sidepodcast.com/post/skipping-straight-to-the-kangaroo-tv-stand
