Race car experiences surge ahead of F1 anniversary year - News

Budding would-be racers are taking to race circuits across the UK in record numbers as Formula 1 celebrates a milestone year.

Our latest figures reveal a sizeable 15 per cent increase in bookings for single-seater race cars in 2019 compared to 2018.

Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays, said: “Interest in motorsport would appear to be stronger than ever as F1 celebrates its 70 th anniversary in 2020.

“We’ve recently witnessed a surge in single-seater bookings as race fans want to experience an adrenalin rush unlike any other while emulating their race track heroes.”

TrackDays.co.uk provides single-seater race cars, such as the Formula F1000, capable of reaching 100mph in under five seconds, and Formula Renault 2000.

Venues, where potential future champions can sharpen their race skills, include Castle Combe, plus other locations in Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Greater Manchester.

Meanwhile other super-fast models to drive include a Formula Silverstone at the world-famous Silverstone track in Northamptonshire where F1 legends like Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton have all raced.

Dan added: “Our research also shows that single-seater experiences are most popular with the 25 to 34-year-old age group. With such strong support from many millennials, motorsport has a young and keen fan base to help it expand further over the next decade and beyond.”

Check out the full range of race car experiences on offer, or visit the new Silverstone Experience visitor attraction, a thrilling journey through the past, present and future of Silverstone and British motor racing.
