New Company provides F1 Race Tours Designed by Fans for Fans
F1 fans are very passionate about the sport, and when they book an F1 race break they want an experience that matches that passion.
That’s exactly what Gill Williams had in mind when she started Motor Racing Tours in 2015. Gill is not only a self-confessed F1 super fan, but also an experienced F1 marshal.
Gill set Motor Racing Tours up after going on an F1 break and finding the whole experience a bit flat. She did however find herself answering questions from her fellow travellers about the race and track. It was while she was answering a question about the pit lane, one of her fellow travellers said “You should be running these tours you know, it would be great to actually have a knowledgeable guide”.
On returning home Gill immediately set about launching Motor Racing Tours to provide her clients with escorted F1 tours, with quality accommodation. The Formula 1 experience is designed for fans and includes a 3 day entry ticket with a guided “Pit Lane Walk” on the Thursday. Gill is on hand throughout the trip to help you get the best out of your F1 break, answering questions and explaining track & race etiquette.
Gill’s passion and knowledge of the sport is evident when you meet her, and it is this that makes her tours so unique. When asked about her tours Gill says “Formula 1 is fast paced and exciting, it gets your adrenalin going. But it’s not just about what’s happening on track, it’s the communications between the team & drivers, what the flags mean, the current FIA rule changes and pit lane news. These are all important factors in a race, so I am always on hand to answer questions, and to point out interesting race developments. It’s a bit of a dream job for a Formula 1 fan really.”
The tours are proving so popular that Monaco, Silverstone, Barcelona and Monza 2016 are already booked up. Not surprising when you consider that Belgium Grand Prix including 5 nights’ Bed & Breakfast, Flights, Track Transfers, 3 Day General Admission Ticket, and Guided Pit Lane Walks on the Thursday are priced at only £599 per person.
Belgium 24th – 28th August £529
Germany 28th July – 1 st August £529
