VisitBritain displays A1GP racing car

VisitBritain is offering motorsports fans the chance to get up close to a racing car having taken delivery of the A1GP Team GBR car.

The car was delivered yesterday April 21 to the tourist office’s flagship visitor centre, The Britain and London Visitor Centre in Regent Street, London.

After going on show for the week, it will take part in the Regent Street Pit Stop on Sunday, 27 April, when it will be joined by 21 more of the racing cars.

The cars, whose specifications and technology are identical, are each run by a national team and compete around the globe in an effort to find which country boasts the best drivers.

Following the Regent Street time trials, the cars will then take part in a final race of the season at Brands Hatch on the May Bank Holiday weekend.

VisitBritain chief executive Tom Wright said: “It is fantastic that we have developed this partnership with A1GP and are able to showcase the car to the thousands of visitors who pass through the doors of the Britain and London Visitor Centre each year.

“The Regent Street Pit Stop will showcase cars from all over the globe and Regent Street is set to provide a spectacular backdrop.

“Sporting events are a real draw for visitors and we hope that we can enthuse them about our sporting culture and perhaps get them to come along to Regent Street and support cars from their own home nations!”
