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
This is true. You see the cars on the track all the time, its the manufacturing that opens your eyes IMO.

Im sure there are plenty of showcars to look at.

Entered, if I win I could walk there as it is pretty much just over the road from me.

When we used to do 'partner visits' at McLaren the day began at 9.30 am and finished at 3.00pm. Red Bull aren't offering much are they!!! You wont see much in 2 hours.

If the race cars aren't there, the only F1 car that will be there is the one from a few years ago that's bolted to the wall in their main reception.

If you are lucky enough to win this tour, then don't bother taking any cameras as you won't really be allowed to get them out let alone getting close to clicker.

I have had a tour of the RB factory in MK and it really is something else smile

I'd love a tour of the McLaren Factory in Working smile

I'm guessing you only get to see what the FIA see and what the accountants put through the books.

Yes, and several cars of various legitimacy (F1 teams like to run "an F1 car" - it doesn't always matter the history. I think one of their's is an old Arrows or Super Aguri or something, and the Mercedes Show Car is usually a Brawn GP one in Merc paint). There's also the FIA ban on running cars less than 2 seasons old to complicate matters (sorry, Corse Cliente!).

Red Bull, as one would expect from a marketing company, are one of the more active "show car" teams, in just the last 3 months or so a NY tunnel run & Thailand come to mind. It also takes a special kind of evil mind to get anything even closely resembling a recent F1 car running on a track like this:
