Going to Silverstone? Win a free Fanvision handheld for the weekend

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.

First time poster, long time reader. Very interested in trying this! The new unit looks much better than the older one. Shame you can only rent the old style one…


Yes please! Also if you have a spare brolly it sounds like I could use that too!


hi james, sounds like a really good idea to me, unless you can see one of the big screens you have no idea who is where during practice till you get home an view the playback on tv, me and my buddy ‘cooper2’ have been going to silverstone for 16 years and cannot wait to see the new pit and paddock building plus wind and rain and reg changes, could this be the best race so far?


Yes please. My first British GP since soggy 2000! Very excited.


Meeeeeeeee plllleeeeaaassseee!!!!

Its my first time at a GP and i can’t wait.

I’d love a Fanvision, I hope its waterproof



Would love one of these, took some f1 virgins last year and apart from the noise of the cars this product was the most impressive part for them


The fool and his crew would say thank you to go on a mission with fanvision!

William Wallace

I’d love to try the new Fanvision handhelds. I’m sitting at Becketts on Sunday and although I’ll see a lot of action, it would be good to see even more.

Jonathan Barnett

Pick me, pick me!

My lovely lady bought me a pair of Silverstone tickets – the only downside is that she’s coming as well…

Love you darling.


coming over from ireland for all 3 days – cant wait!


Hi JA, leaving for a wet and windy Silverstone as soon as I get outta work today! Cannot wait! Would love to get my hands on a fanvision. It’ll help explain to my gf (first time at a grand prix) wants happening!


I’ll be there sat / sun – looking at the weather on Friday I’m glad I didn’t go for the full 3 days… Can’t wait!!!!


Oh yes. *Very*.


I doubt I’ll be holding the winning Euromillions ticket tomorrow so I’ll throw my hat in for a Fan Vision! Will be at Becketts wearing rocket red…


Yes please !


Yes please! Going to all 3 days and can’t wait!

Pranav Haldea

I’m travelling all the way from New Delhi tomorrow for the race! I have also convinced 3 non-fans to come and watch the race with me. A fanvision would really add up to their experience!

Pick me! I have never won any of your contents : -(


Yes please James, that would be awesome!
