Today we announce the first major JA on F1 competition of 2013. We’ve done some pretty cool ones over the years, giving many fans the chance to get closer to the sport.
This one is particularly intriguing. In conjunction with our friends at Shell, it’s your chance to take part in a very special event in Central London on April 18th, hosted by former BBC F1 frontman Jake Humphrey and featuring a chance for you to do some driving in high performance cars in a dramatic setting, with Ferrari test drivers, including Giancarlo Fisichella.
You will also get a chance to test your skills in a genuine F1 Simulator; the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 professional driver trainer, to give it the correct title, which is making a rare visit to the UK.
We have three places on this event to give away.
As the event is also a major announcement, we don’t want to give the story away, so let’s just say it revolves around “Performance Reinvented”. And to have a chance to be one of the three lucky winners to experience this event, we would like you to write a 150 word post about what the phrase “Performance Reinvented” means to you.
It could be to do with something you’ve seen in F1, or it could be your own experience of driving on the road or on a test track. What does that phrase mean to you?
* The day you worked out a new driving technique
* Your thoughts on how Ferrari and Alonso turned around their 2012 car to challenge for the title
* The renaissance in form of Felipe Massa
* Technical marvels, which have raised the performance level in F1 eg. F Ducts/Coanda exhausts
Post in the comment section below (Maximum 150 words). Deadline is 21-00 UK time on Friday 12th April, when we will pick the three best answers.
The winners will then be invited to take part in the exciting Shell driving challenge on 18th April 2013. You can bring a guest to share the day with you.
You will also be asked to report back on your experience – we will publish a guest blog by you on the JA on F1 site, so bring your camera!
