Formula 1 fans are being invited to see a F1 car close up and hear from a top team boss.

The Infiniti Centre Newcastle is hosting a ‘Grand Prix’ weekend from 10am on Sunday, July 26, offering people the chance to watch the Hungarian Grand Prix live from the Hungaroring on a big screen.

Prior to the race starting at 1pm, boss of the Infiniti Red Bull racing team Christian Horner will join guests for a live interview direct from the circuit, being conducted by BBC Radio Newcastle sports commentator Mick Lowes.

An Infiniti Red Bull F1 racing car, as driven by Sebastian Vettel and last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix winner Daniel Ricciardo, will be on display, together with Ricciardo’s racing overalls and other driver memorabilia.

In addition to the prestigious racing car, guests will have the opportunity to test their own skills with driving simulators and reaction timing machines and to view the impressive Infiniti range.

The centre is located at Silverlink Retail Park in North Shields.
