Renault offers fans the chance to "feel the power"


Fancy taking an F1 car for a spin this summer? Now, you can belt up with the Renault F1 team's Feel It programme to become a grand prix driver for the day!

It's not every day that an F1 team opens its doors and gives fans the chance to experience some adrenaline-fuelled laps in an F1 car, but that's exactly what the Feel It Programme offers. It's the chance to realise a lifelong ambition by stepping into your heroes' shoes for a taste of life at 200mph. With 700 horsepower under your right foot, an F1 car needs taming and it's all down to you.

The whole experience is designed to offer a rare glimpse into the challenge faced by the best drivers on the planet every other weekend. Taking place at the challenging Hungaroring circuit in Budapest, Feel It takes you on a fast-track training programme from Formula Renault to Formula One in just one day.

And once you've tamed the F1 car you'll be strapped into our three-seater F1 car for some eye-opening laps with one of the team's reserve drivers. What better way to fully appreciate the brutal acceleration, impossible cornering speeds, and energy-zapping brakes of modern F1 machinery?

But the life of an F1 star isn't just about driving at breakneck speed, so you'll be thrust into every aspect of the job faced by our race drivers. That means attending engineers' meetings, studying the telemetry, and even walking the track. Before you know it you'll be complaining of understeer and oversteer just like the pros.

With a team of 30 experts at your disposal, including mechanics, engineers and your very own physio, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity that you won't want to miss. Not only will you join the elite club of F1 drivers, you'll be the envy of your friends and able to dine out on the story for years to come.
