Discover your ultimate racing holiday

McLaren Formula 1 Experience

Introducing the McLaren Formula 1 Experience for 2021. Based within the Formula One Paddock Club, the McLaren Formula 1 Experience was founded in 1989 and has played host exclusively to the McLaren Partners’ business leaders and VIPs ever since.

The combination of prime access, the finest service, exquisite cuisine and breath taking views of the racing redefined a Formula 1 weekend.

The McLaren Formula 1 Experience private suite or tables sit above the team garages overlooking the pit lane with views of the start finish line.

From here guests can experience the thrill of the race build up, the intensity of each pit stop and the sheer excitement of watching the winner take the chequered flag. It is, without doubt, an unrivalled and privileged view.

Guests are welcomed to the McLaren Formula 1 Experience from first thing in the morning until the end of the racing day. Guests will arrive, via dedicated VIP guest routes, into the centre of the circuit to an exclusive parking area.

On arrival, guests will be presented with a gift bag before they are directed to their tables, where the McLaren hospitality team will personally welcome them. A full breakfast along with pastries freshly made by the Paddock Club’s own Chefs de Partie is offered to start the day.

Each day the McLaren Formula 1 Experience is punctuated with driver interviews using the Pit Link, broadcasting live two-way interaction between the McLaren Garage and McLaren Paddock Club Suite. Senior Management interviews will also be conducted via the pit link enabling guests to gain unique insights into Formula 1 and the race weekend strategy.

Race team headsets will be available for small groups throughout each F1 session. Members of the McLaren team will be on- hand to host guests as they listen in to team radio whilst viewing the live garage feed displayed onscreen, alongside Marple and the track action.

Giant screens allow guests to follow all of the track action and race timing screens display the cascade of information you will find the teams looking at on the pit wall.

As a guest of the Formula 1 Paddock Club you receive exclusive access to the following additional guest experiences (subject to availability):

Grid Photo Experience where guests will have the opportunity to access the circuit and have their photo taken on the start / finish straight with the F1 Championship trophies.

Daily Truck Tours where guests are able to experience the circuit first hand. If a Partner is hosting a large number of guests, we will endeavour to secure an exclusive truck for that particular guest group.

The culinary highlight of the day is undoubtedly the four course fine dining lunch and carefully chosen fine wines. The Paddock Club’s team of dedicated chefs from around the world create a choice of international and local dishes to impeccably high standards.
