Afternoon F1 fans!

Some of you may remember that we hosted an F1 Wake Up at Mercedes-Benz World way back in 2015... Is this something that you would interested in again?

If you haven't the faintest what the hell I'm going on about, below are the editorial pieces surrounding it...

Announcement

Review

As part of our new ownership we want to make PH better in every way, and this includes our events. So with our first (and only) F1 wake up a big success 4 years ago, we thought why not kick start it again?!

We was thinking of seeing if we could head to an F1 factory, small cinema, that type of thing really.

If you went to the MBW F1 Wake Up and didn't like something about it, or loved something about it, then we'd love to hear your feedback!

In the mean time - vote away if you'd like to attend one smile

I don't think there can be a negative towards getting a bunch of us PH community to gather especially with regards to everyone having a shared interest. Can we make sure some of the F1 thread trolls are in attendance, with name badges? smile

My only thoughts would be towards a location. Most PH events/services and so South centric it makes it almost impossible for a lot of us to attend.

An F1 factory would be a great experience but it's a shame when anyone from the North (let alone Scotland or anywhere else) would need a weekend pass to attend.

Thanks for your input and very valid point! This is a pretty limiting event in terms of it needs a specific type of venue, however, I'll see what I can do thumbup

I think a lot of the F1 factories already hold these type of events anyway not necessarily open to the general public though if you did manage to pull one off it would be a real coup.

It would be nice to get the chance to visit any type of race team as the technology is cutting edge, Prodrive was one of my favourite Sunday Services.

Slightly disappointing at this time only 21 have voted yay or nay for this.

I'm not a big F1 fan but a trip out to a showing of the race would be nice.....smile

With the majority of the population based in the south and I’d say all UK based F1 teams in the “south” there’s not much that can be done about that.

I went to the one in 2015 and even the Mrs enjoyed it. A really great event and count me in for a repeat!

Only just seen this, count me in. Did a meeting with Redbull a few years ago but all I got to see was reception and some dull grey corridors and a dreary grey meeting room.

Can't we just go see Poppopbangbang's 996 and workshop?
