Typical package options include:

  • Carefully selected grandstand seats, hospitality or VIP access to the Formula One Paddock Club
  • Access to the circuits including guided bus tours
  • Paddock tours
  • Exclusive welcome parties with racing legends past and present
  • Expert hosts giving unique insights into the F1 race weekend
  • Best available hotels
  • Daily transfers direct into the circuits
  • Exclusive merchandise and premiums

Places will be limited so interested fans should book early.
