Competition: Win a unique behind the scenes JA on F1 tour of the Mercedes F1 factory

JA on F1 is offering seven lucky winners the chance to go behind the scenes at the Mercedes F1 factory next month.

JA on F1 is offering seven lucky winners the chance to go behind the scenes at the Mercedes F1 factory next month.

This amazing prize comes to us as following the successful conclusion of the 2016 F1 Connectivity Innovation Prize F1’s tech based crowdsourcing challenge.

This year’s Grand Prix winner, Datu Yogabrata, designed a ‘Virtual Trackside Experience’, which aimed to allow F1 fans from around the world to view unprecedented areas of a Grand Prix event via virtual reality. His idea used live panoramic 360-degree visuals that would be captured by multiple agents who move around the circuit using wearable VR equipment. Fans would then have the freedom to be in control of whatever area they want to see, when they want to view it.

Thanks to one of our sponsors, Tata Communications, a joint partner with F1 Management and Mercedes of the F1 Connectivity Innovation Prize, we can take seven lucky winners on an in-depth behind the scenes tour of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team’s base at Brackley, England on Friday December 2.

You will get to go around the facility where Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s F1 W07 Hybrid cars were designed and built and where next year’s car to the radical new 2017 rules is being developed at the moment. There will be lunch afterwards. James Allen will be there on the day, alongside the host, to answer any questions you may have.
