Here’s another great opportunity to get closer to F1. Ever wanted to experience the thrill of an F1 pit stop from behind a wheel gun?

Well here’s your chance because next Wednesday July 6th we are going to have a JA on F1 pitstop competition.

We have been given the opportunity of bringing 16 JA on F1 readers to an event organised by Hilton, a partner of the McLaren team. The event will take place between 2pm and 3pm outside one of the Hilton Hotels in Central London.

We’ve been given a McLaren car for an hour. So readers who fancy learning how to do lightning fast wheel changes using latest spec wheelguns on a real F1 car can come along and give it a try. I’ll be there too and will do a post on how you get on.

Also, to make it even more fun, we’ll be timing you – once you’ve got the hang of it! And as an incentive, as there will be two people working on each wheel, the fastest wheelchange pairing of the two groups of 8 will win 2 tickets (general admittance) to the British Grand Prix.

So if you fancy doing something different during your lunch break or you’re sure you can be in Central London on Wednesday afternoon please apply for a place in the comments section below. Entries close Monday 4th at 5pm.

If we have lots of entries, as anticipated, we will do a ballot to select the 16 who’ll get to do the challenge.

Count me in, I'm based near Oxford Street so hopefully you'll be nearby.

Andrew

2

I'm up for a bit of pit stop fun!

3

Grrrrrr! Wish some of these events would be over here in the colonys! We miss out on the Forums, tours, contests and fan meetings due to that little detail called the Atlantic Ocean. Perhaps one of the major team sponsors would see fit to have North American-only contests with travel to UK so the winner[s] could participate in one of these shindigs. It would be a great way to spur interest up for next year's USGP.

4

Ah the draw backs of the being in the best viewing timezone eh!

5

How about Australia... we miss out on all of that

+

Brazil, Abu Dhabi etc.. all take place in the early hours of the morning, with the majority of races STARTING after 10 at night.

6

Scottie, what?

10pm is ok for me since it's not ruining my day and I can have dinner, then a bit later enjoy the buildup then GP. But it does make for a tired start to week.

And the more often that not, the Gran Prix that decides the WDC and WCC happens to be in themiddle of the night... Brazil.

Sure, if maybe Bahrain or a boring GP was there, or even any of the middle ones, fine, I'll watch it later, and it doesn't matter because it's just a race.

BUT, the decider! I didn't see Button in 09 or Hamilton in 08, the whole hamilton gearbox, raikkonen thing was just a headline in an article for the 2007 GP. Abu dhabi isn't even that better. One minute Alonso was leading, Webber 2nd, fall asleep and you can't off the media for 2 days (monday morning... -> tuesday night) almost so it becomes a horrible climax!

7

+ 1 for Aus (especially we now have two drivers on the grid, go Daniel go!).

And maybe Singapore because I go there eevry year for the GP and due to the massive number of Aussie at the Bay grandstand.

(Sorry, a bit one sided request but can;t tame my enthusiasm :-))

8
scottie doesn't know

10pm starts are perfect. We have the best viewing times on balance in the world.

9

Exactly, it was painful getting up at 3am for the Canadian Grand Prix! So worth it though!

11

I would love to get involved in something like this! Please consider me for this competition James!

12

I'd love to give it a try James. I'm based in London so getting there will be no problem.

Regards, Adam

13

I reckon I could beat Red Bull! 1.9secs

14

I'd fancy that. Could you put my name down for it, please? Sounds like bags of fun.

15

Sounds like a laugh. I'm in.

16
Elvis Baptiste

I would love to attend and try my hand at some real work.

I shall start prep work this evening

17

wow! great stuff!

Unfortunatelly, being an Argentinean, i'll be sitting a bit too far away from London during the event!

Have Fun!

Cheers,

Cole

18
Connor McLaughlin

James,

I'd love to do this.

Connor.

19

I'm sure I could clear all my meetings on Wednesday afternoon. Sign me up!

20

hi james,

please please please can i do this challenge it would be amazing

cheers

max glover

21

As always USA Fans are discriminated against in these contests! By the way the two ticket prize is nice, but whay don't you make it interesting and give away the McLaren, or at the very least the winners get a job in the paddock!

22

What's funny is that at the Canadian Grand Prix I always kept seeing this pit stop competition setup to test yourself.

But each and every year it was the same Budwiser Chevy NASCAR 1/2 car setup, not a mock up F1 setup.

23

Not just US fans...I live in Bath (not too far from the hometown of one Jenson Button) and can't very well drive halfway across the country just to enter a competition...

Love the site James, but sometimes the events you run are too London-centric...

24

What like the Fans Forum in Montreal you mean? Not many sites do anything at all for fans, remember

25

To be fair minded - it is not possible to have this type of competition at many venues. I think it is great that JA on F1 is arranging this type of F1 contact and the F1 forum in various continents for F1 fans. Keep up the good work!

Look forward to reading the results and about the event on JA on F1.

26

I did a 7 hour round trip to mclaren on Thursday for an amazing 4 hours at MTC thanks to James and FOTA.

27

bleh! All you do for *me is make me intensely jealous! ;D

But when I win the lottery you can be assured I'll hop a jet and be there for these parties!

28
Andrew Halliday

You tell them James! If people want to do it enough, they'll make the effort. I'm flying from Melbourne to Glasgow next Tuesday, arriving home in Edinburgh Wednesday evening then driving down to Oxford on Thursday to attend the GP for the next 3 days. Hopefully not too much jet lag - that's dedication!

29

Mate, you do realise that this James Allen is British and this is a British website and we're talking about a british team. How many nascar competitions are there in the USA for Brits?

30

And remember that last month input on a Fans Forum in Montreal, Canada with FOTA. How many other UK based sites do that?

31

Would love the opportunity so name in the hat please.

32

I'll be there!

Can I bring my own wheelgun?

33

Bring a watergun, you can shoot other competitors make believe it's raining. 🙂

34

Use a McLaren one, bound to be optiomised

35

If it was a Red Bull, I'd suggest "accidentally" losing the wheels...

36

fine opportunity for masses........

37

HI James,

Wow...such a treat - whether win or lose...taking part would be fantastic!

Thanks for the opportunity - I will keep my fingers & everything else crossed.

Best regards,

San K.

38

Count me in!

39

Hello! I can (and would very much like to) be there!

46

Hi James,

You can count me in on this one too!

Cheers,

Neil

47

You've just been Black flagged and disqualified on the grounds that you've been to Abu Dhabi for a couple od days last year.

Best of luck though. 🙂

48

Viva James Allen!! Count me and my brother in! The Carr Brothers united as one 🙂

We will start training tonight!

What a fantastic opportunity. We missed out on the Fans Forum at the MTC, so hopefully we can be a part of this great event.

49

I'm in!!!!!

50

This sounds awesome, count me in please!

I'm moving to London next week so it would be the perfect welcome present...

51

57

would love to have a go.

Luke.

58

Very interested in this!

59

Sign me up! I'm a long-term fan of F1 and would love to meet up and have a shot at winning tickets.

I live nearby and can be extremely flexible with my work, so attending would be a sure thing. If I need to bring someone for the pairing that can be arranged too.

Looks like it will be a ballot. Fingers crossed.

60

I am in as well, would be fun to get up close to a F1 car.

61

Hi,

I'm a big Mclaren fan and I'm leaving from Portugal to London next weekend just to see the 2011 British Grand Prix. It will be my first live Formula1 race....and what a better way to start than to pratice some f1 wheelchange on my favourite car? Fantastic stuff!

Count me in!

Regards,

Mário

62

yup. count me in too!

63
Ritesh Tendulkar

Would love to do it.

64

65

69

I'm defo in!

70
Douglas Revill

Hi James

Love your website, thanks.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the fans. I'd love to give it a go. Is there any chance you could arrange something like this for the Aussie fans at Albert Park next year? There would be a lot of interest.

The fans over in Australia and New Zealand love our sport as much as anyone in Europe - perhaps even more committed I'd say - we have to get up in the wee hours to watch these amazing cars and drivers scream around the tracks.

We miss out on a lot because we are so far from the action. I'm sure we would all appreciate the opportunity to have a closer look at an F1 car, and to be tested against the British fans!

71

Been to New Zealand a couple of times. Everytime I set foot in your country the first thing that comes to my mind is the great Mr.Bruce McLaren.

Will always remember Graeme Lawrence and Geoff Perry.

72
Douglas Revill

Yes, for a small country we've produced some great talent, both engineers and drivers. I often think of the amazing things Bruce McLaren might have achieved if he had lived to a ripe old age.

73

Red Bull did a wheel gun event at Melbourne Uni in 2010.

74

It takes a co-operative sponsor - or team. I'll ask around

76
Douglas Revill

I just checked out your site - thanks Damien. It's great to have an idea where the best places are to view a GP. Keep up the good work.

77
Douglas Revill

Fantastic - thanks James.

78

Thank you very much on your kind comment for the website.

I just published a guide to the Canadian GP a couple of days ago if this takes your fancy for next year.

79

James,

Count me in too please.

James Healey.

80

I'm in!

Cheers

Matt

81

Would be brilliant to do that.

82

James,

Please count me in (x2) - thanks. David Kent

83

me too please James.

are McLaren providing the overalls and helmets and gloves?

84

I would like to apply please!!! (Hoping this oppotunity is open for women to apply for too?!)

Many thanx

Gem

86

Oh this sounds like fun! Count me in 🙂

87

Iv got the day off so can be there would love to go I'm a big mclaren fan

88

James,

Count me in as an applicant!

Matt

89
Christopher Mould

Wow, James. What a great opportunity to get "up close and personal". I live in Birmingham, but it would be no problem to jump on a train and come to central London on Wednesday. Thanks for giving fans the opportunity to apply.

Chris Mould

90

Would love to do this, missed out on the FOTA Fans Forum last week, this would be perfect!

91
msmelbournegirl

Given the timezones the races are in we are very dedicated fans over here in Melbourne since most races start at 10pm on a Sunday night; and don't get me started on the Canada & Brazil races.....their 2am and 4am starts are a killer and can make for a tough Monday at work!! But we love it, so we do it!

Soooo, I'll second the comments from the other Australian fans.

We'd love to have a little something like this in Melbourne next year. A pit stop tryout? yes please. A FOTA fan forum? double yes please.

Cheers.

PS: Love the new website, looks smashing!

92

Would love the opportunity to experience handling a wheelgun.

93

Count me in please

94

Yeah count me in too, it sounds great

95

Happen to be on a week's secondment in London that week, which is handy timing.

Count me in.

Cheers

96
Michael Griffin

Count me in for this!!

97
Hardip Sangha

Count me in

98
Stephen Courtney

I'd also like to apply, I'm based in central London too.

Thanks

Stephen

99
Siddharth Javeri

Excited for such an opportunity. I'm in.

100
Adam harcourt

Count me in James I fancy I'm faster than those virgin boys!

101

Unexpectedly I have this Wednesday off. See you all there?

102

I'll put my name forward, sounds like an amazing opportunity!

103
Dipesh Chudasama

This sounds awesome, Count me in!!!

p.s. I'm obsessed with F1

104

Here's my entry. Hoping I'm lucky in the ballot. 🙂

105

Would love to do this but I'm a wheelchair user - suppose I could operate the wheelgun but not sure I could haul in a wheel. They are so much heavier than the pit crews make it look on TV!

Put me in the hat if you think it would be accessible...

My own wheels are quick release too. 😉

106

I would like to apply

thanks

Alex

107

Count me in 🙂

108

Count me in James.

109

James,

F1 is a global sport and is seeking new territories. More interest would be generated in emerging markets like India/China or even a charity run for Japan. Same for Australia.

F1 needs more such smaller feeder events for increased popularity and needs to get out of the mother continent 🙂

Cheers

110

I would love the chance count me in, I would clear a week of meetings for the chance.

111

Yes please, count me in

112
Tomas Sopkuliak

I`m in 🙂 lets go do it :))))

113

I'd like to Apply! I'm off this week and have plenty of time to be disappointed at losing a ballot!

114

I'm in!

115

Hi James,

I would be interested in this and can make the date.

116
Akiiki Bedeau

What an amazing opportunity. You can definateltly count me in. I live in central London so will have no problem getting there.

117

Count me in - this would be sooooo cool

118

The big bear will decide who comes to the party.

119

Count me in on this! Sounds like a great opportunity! 🙂

120

I'd like to come!

121

Please sign me up James. I live in Milton Keynes and I'm available all day on Wednesday.

122

I'd be well up for this! Put my name in the hat please!

123
Ricky Woolway

Hey James

Would love to be part of this

Please stick my name in the hat cheers !

124

What a great idea - count me in!

125

I'm in!!!!!

I live in the midlands but can easily drive into London and Wednesday is perfect for me.

126

Here’s my entry!

127

I'd like to apply please! 🙂 thanks for the opportunity James!

128

Please add my name to the list.

Thanks

129
Christopher Whyte

James, thanks for the opportunity, would love to give it a go.

130
Andrew Woodruff

I'd love to do this James. I work in central London so could definitely make it!

Thanks

Andrew

131

I'd be up for it, sounds like an absolute hoot, please add my name to the list 🙂

132

Count me in for this! Sounds like well good fun!

133

I would like to be included in the draw!

134

Sounds like a pretty cool thing to do, I'd love to have a go. Either way I'll come and watch!

135

Hi James,

I'm used to keeping the wheels on big projects so I guess could a take a few off a McLaren.

Love to do it, work in central London and can clear my diary.

LA

136

Count me in too Please. Handy with the spanners and wheel gun !

137

Hi James

Count me in please!

Is it open for the people who don't win to watch it?

138

No, apparently the council are nervous about numbers, hence why we're only telling the winners which Hilton it is!

139

another idea might be not to tell the council which Hilton it is....

140

Yes please!! I'll take the day off, no problem.

Thanks

141

sounds like great fun, please chuck my name in the hat!

142

Count me in too!!

Thanks

143

I'd come up with a pithy, witty comment, but it probably won't help in a ballot! Please add me to the names in the hat though 🙂

144

Hi James,

What a great competition, please put my name into the draw. It sounds like it will be great fun. 🙂

Cheers,

Nick

145

You really want to rev F1 up. Do something any thing in New York City. Some kind of promo like these NASCAR guys do driving their cars down Broadway from Times Sq. Something like a mini race between a Ferrari and a Mac. I mean 10,000 people showed up at Wadkins Glen to see that seat swap between Hamilton and Stewart. There's a least 10 times that amount going thru the Times Sq. subway turnstiles during rush hour. Then run a contest for THAT!

By the way, hey Jim Allen you didn't post my reply to "john". What's up with that? Does my view about NASCAR fans offend British sensibilities?

146

Wow! nice one James. Sure wouldn't mind it. Always liked the sound when the nut is being removed and attached.

Looks like numerous new teams can be formed, LOL.

147
Ricky Woolway

Hey James

Hows it going ? Anybody lost a wheel yet or been signed up by Mclaren? 🙂

148

Fastest was 5.5 seconds. It was good fun, harder than any of them imagined
