Will you be the F1 GP Champion of 2014?

Emulate five of the most exciting F1 Grands Prix of the year at Buckmore! For six of this season's F1 races we have arranged a rather special race day.

Watch the Grand Prix with fellow petrol-heads in the Surtees Suite on our big screen whilst enjoying a buffet meal. After* the race pop on your race gear and prepare to replicate the race (minus any crashes we hope).

Qualifying will be F1 style with Q1, Q2 and Q3 deciding the final order. The race will then mimic the number of laps of that days F1 Grand Prix (or the maximum time in the case of wet weather or other delays)

At the end of the season the driver who has accrued the most points will be the 2014 F1 Grand Prix Special Champion. A superb trophy will be awarded at the Annual Prizegiving in February 2015.

* For some races this will be before due to the televised times of the F1 races.
