Posted on 20 February, 2023

Kickstart your race weekend by getting closer to Formula 1 with an interactive event at the track. Learn more about attending F1® Experiences Live with F1 Experiences.

What is F1® Experiences Live?

Previously known as F1® Live On The Grid, F1® Experiences Live is an innovative trackside fan activation, bringing you closer to the world of Formula 1 via an interactive event with car displays, a host of big-name guests being interviewed on the big stage, plus a wide selection of food trucks and open bars*.

The action normally takes place on the starting grid or circuit during the early evening on Thursday of race weekend and features some of F1 Experiences' most popular activations. Our guests can take a guided tour of the circuit and have their photo taken with the official Formula 1 World Championship trophies during the event.

*Due to local licensing laws, alcohol is not served during F1® Experiences Live in Canada.

Why is it worth attending F1® Experiences Live?

Without a fixed schedule – apart from the speakers appearing on the stage – you are free to roam around during F1® Experiences Live, take part in the experiences on offer at your leisure, and grab a drink and something to eat.

During F1® Experiences Live, our Expert Hosts are on hand to give you a closer look at an official F1 steering wheel, driver helmet and racing suit, while static displays have included original examples of some of the most iconic F1 cars of all time.
