Jenson Button And McLaren To Race Deansgate

Formula One Champion in Manchester 27-29 August

Published on August 20th 2011.


Jenson Button And McLaren To Race Deansgate

JENSON Button and his Vodafone F1 crew are putting on a Bank Holiday weekend spectacular next week in Manchester, inclouding a race around the city.

Among the mountain of prizes to be won on the day the grand prize for one lucky Vodaphone customer is a passenger seat joy ride through the city centre with Button in his McLaren MP4-12C. 

From Saturday 27 to Monday 29 the Vodafone VIP and McLaren Mercedes F1 team will man a VIP Fan Zone in Albert Square complete with Go Kart Track, F1 simulator and various other F1 excitements. There will also be a mock pit garage on the forecourt of the Hilton Deansgate for petrol heads to faint over.

Vodafone customers can take three friends with them to enjoy these installations.

The highlight of the weekend is on Bank Holiday Monday when Jenson Button will be painting tyre marks on the streets of Manchester in his Maclaren Mercedes F1 car. Button will tear up a circuit starting on Deansgate at 11am. From behind barriers everyone will be able to enjoy the spectacle, whether they're Vodafone people or not. But there is one last privilege for the network's customers. They can take a seat on the specially erected grandstand.

Among the mountain of prizes to be won on the day the grand prize for one lucky Vodaphone customer is a passenger seat joy ride through the city centre with Button in his McLaren MP4-12C. The 2009 world drivers’ champion will then bring the weekend to a close with an on-stage, Q&A appearance.

Button, who spends most of his time experiencing constant bone-crushing G-force, reckons it will be “pretty cool”. Let’s hope he’s a bit more eloquent during the question and answer section.

The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Fan Zone will be open from 10am - 6pm each day of the weekend.  The car run will take place from 11am on Monday 29th August.

I agree, Schofield compels me to visit places in Manchester that I didn't know I wanted to visit.
