There’s been talk of a London Grand Prix for some time now, and while Formula E will be coming to the city in June 2015, the chances of a full-blown F1 race are still slim.
Still, the prospect is an interesting one and in support of London Race Week – the prelude to the British Grand Prix – Lotus turned up with driver Marco Sørensen to take a run around a theoretical circuit in the Docklands area.
London Race Week kicks off on July 3 at the Royal Artillery Gardens on City Road. Attractions include:
> F1 cars performing high-adrenaline stunts
> Historic F1 cars
> Driver’s cricket match echoing those played in the 1970s
> Grand Prix Ball, the annual black tie spectacular attended by the stars of F1 – all in support of The Prince’s Trust
> Black Ball Race Forum – an F1 business forum
Tickets are £40 and can be purchased at www.raceweeklondon.com.
