Join in the JA on F1 pit stop competition
Jul 1, 2011, 5:06 PM

Here's another great opportunity to get closer to F1.

Here's another great opportunity to get closer to F1. Ever wanted to experience the thrill of an F1 pit stop from behind a wheel gun?

Well here's your chance because next Wednesday July 6th we are going to have a JA on F1 pitstop competition.

We have been given the opportunity of bringing 16 JA on F1 readers to an event organised by Hilton, a partner of the McLaren team. The event will take place between 2pm and 3pm outside one of the Hilton Hotels in Central London.

We've been given a McLaren car for an hour. So readers who fancy learning how to do lightning fast wheel changes using latest spec wheelguns on a real F1 car can come along and give it a try. I'll be there too and will do a post on how you get on.

Also, to make it even more fun, we'll be timing you - once you've got the hang of it! And as an incentive, as there will be two people working on each wheel, the fastest wheelchange pairing of the two groups of 8 will win 2 tickets (general admittance) to the British Grand Prix.

So if you fancy doing something different during your lunch break or you're sure you can be in Central London on Wednesday afternoon please apply for a place in the comments section below. Entries close Monday 4th at 5pm.

If we have lots of entries, as anticipated, we will do a ballot to select the 16 who'll get to do the challenge.
