Your chance to visit the factory where Lewis Hamilton’s new F1 car is being built
Posted By: James Allen  |  04 Dec 2012   |  11:00 pm GMT  |  750 comments

At JA on F1 we are always trying to bring the fans closer to the sport; last month we took ten lucky fans behind the scenes at the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS factory in Brackley, England.

The visit was such a success that we are able to offer another tour!

We have an opportunity to take another ten fans behind the scenes to experience how a Formula 1 team factory works, to visit the various departments and to see where Lewis Hamilton’s and Nico Rosberg’s 2013 F1 car is being built.

This superb opportunity comes thanks to our partner UBS and to the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team.

To get a sense of what our visitors experienced last month and what lies in store for you, click here

You will see where the engineers work, the different departments of an F1 factory, where individual parts of an F1 car are fabricated and where the car is assembled, as well as the race bays where the mechanics work on the cars between races.

Refreshments will be served at the start of the event and there will be lunch afterwards.

And James will be there to accompany you all the way and to give insights into any areas of interest you may have in current F1, including race strategy.

The Tour takes place on Monday December 10th, with arrival at 09-30am for a 10am start.

Entry is free and the process is very simple: Leave your name below and we will select ten winners at random on Thursday night, from 19-00HRS UK time.
