Win a Red Bull F1 tour...

...with a little help from Infiniti in our exclusive PistonHeads competition!



The world of F1 is a famously closed shop and behind the scenes access rare. Unless you're one of the three lucky PHers - or one of the two guests each can bring - who'll be getting an exclusive tour of Red Bull's Milton Keynes HQ at the end of the month, courtesy of Infiniti.

Wipe your shoes before you go in...

It's no secret Infinitiis keen to bolster its involvement in F1 and underline its sponsorship of Red Bull. It's built a Vettel edition road car we'll be driving soon. It's even had us alongto Spa to show off how it does things on race weekend. But you'll be going where very few outside the team have ever been permitted to go - into the heart of the operation that, if things pan out, could deliver Sebastian Vettel his third world championship.

The full itinerary of the tour can be seen below, likewise details of how to enter. The very best of luck and let us know how you get on if you win!


Well, what did you expect to see outside?

A 1 hour "exclusive tour" where the cars "may or may not be there"...

I don't mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, but it doesn't sound like Infinity really have much clout at all at RBR if this is all they can wrangle.

Entered. Thanks. Fingers crossed for an early Christmas present.
Well the cars won't be at a race weekend as the last race is Brazil on 25th November.

11:30 - 12:30: "an in-depth look at the process of how the team designs and builds its F1 cars."

That's about 11 hours less than I'd want, and about an hour longer than Adrian Newey would like...

It's unlikely the cars would return to the factory between 'flyaway' races.

Its a shame you have to be 18 or over. My son (14) would love to visit as he's a massive Red Bull F1 fan.

They let him into the Red Bull F1 stand at GFOS because he was wearing a team T-shirt and cap smile.

Final race is 25th November in Brazil, this tour is Thurs 29th November. So it's possible the cars will be back in UK, but whether they'll be set up in the workshop and available to look over or not is a different question.

It is the last race of the season, so there are no more races for them to head to... but I have a feeling at that point their first concern won't be to get the cars back to the factory for the 1 hour exclusive tour party...

[Anguished Homer Simpson] Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww[\Homer]. Why does it have to be a Thursday? Any other day of the week would have been fine but all my most important (and hard to understand) subjects are timetabled for lectures on Thursdays. banghead

I wouldn't stress to much about the cars being there, they probably will be and, anyway, there will be a few show cars etc knocking about.

The factory itself is the thing to see, some of the processes that go on are quite amazing. All to get two cars to race a few times a year biggrin
