Our competition winner describes his Canadian GP weekend

Hans Peters from the Netherlands was the lucky winner of two Champions Club Ticket Packages to the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix in our recent giveaway. “This was the first time in Canada for my son and I, and we had an amazing weekend,” says Hans.


“I have been following F1® for a long time. On most race days, our whole family gathers to watch the race. Even my two daughters are big F1 race fans. We support Max Verstappen, of course. We forgive him when he makes mistakes, because he is still young. We believe he can become one of the best drivers.”


It was unreal to hear that we had won the competition. We immediately booked flights and went four days in advance so we could see some of the country. Before the race weekend we drove to Niagara Falls, which was an incredible sight and well worth the 1400km round trip.”


“The trackside atmosphere at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was a highlight. Everyone is so excited and we loved being thrown into the action. The views from the Champions Club were unreal. We were so close to the cars that you could almost touch them as they flew past! That left a big impression on us. We also really enjoyed the guided access to the F1 Paddock, where you could see the teams and famous people up close. We got to meet Jack Plooij, the famous Dutch presenter who works for Ziggo Sport.” (see main picture above)

Final Thoughts

This was my first live F1® race. After this amazing trip, we will definitely be planning a trip to another race next year, especially as Spa-Francorchamps is only 150km away from our home in Eindhoven. We would definitely recommend F1 Experiences, it really does live up to its name! We had the best weekend with so much action, and great support from the F1 Experiences team. We want to thank everyone for the great weekend and a special thanks to Darragh for his kindness!”
