We’ve had some pretty exciting competitions on JA on F1 and have sent many first time fans to Grands Prix, who would not have had the chance to go otherwise.

Now we are at it again with a superb opportunity thanks to our partner UBS and to the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team.

We are offering 10 people the chance to tour the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS factory in Brackley, England. You’ll go behind the scenes of the team for which Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher raced this year and for which Lewis Hamilton will race next season. You’ll see where and how the cars are made. And you’ll be accompanied by our own James Allen.

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 Thursday November 8th, with arrival at 09-30am for a 10am start.
