Camping and cars

DINNINGTON Formula One boss John Booth believes his team will provide the best fan experience at this year’s British Grand Prix.

A year on from a successful inaugural event, the 2011 Marussia Virgin Racing Weekend will take place within the grounds of Stowe School, from 7th to 10th July.

Racing fans will be provided with a raft of activities and entertainment, the chance to meet the Virgin Racing drivers and an exclusive screening of the new Senna film.

The movie’s writer Manish Pandey will be on hand to offer insight into the film.

Booth told the Guardian: “The Marussia Virgin Racing weekend is a unique opportunity for the fans to get closer to a Formula One team during such a special race like the British Grand Prix.”

“It has everything an F1 fan dreams about – it’s a race weekend and a festival all rolled into one.

“You don’t get many chances like this one, where you can meet the drivers and have a BBQ with the team or enjoy a special summer festival atmosphere with live DJs and music.”

“We pride ourselves on being a fan-friendly team, and we look to rewarding them with a fantastic experience.”

There will also be a licensed bar and champagne lounge, VIP parking facilities and express transfers to and from the circuit.

The Marussia Virgin Racing Weekend provides a wide range of camping packages.
