Every Formula One Fanatics Dream

by F1Fan on April 27, 2010

Ever dreamt about taking an F1 car for a spin. Now, the Renault F1 Team is giving a few lucky Formula One fanaticis the chance of a lifetime to become a a grand prix driver for the day!

This is not a contest, all it takes is for you to come up with the 5,000 Euro (Approx $6,700) it costs to sign up for the Renault F1 Teams “Feel It Program”, plus of course the travel costs to get to the Hungaroring circuit in Hungary this Summer.

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 for a taste of life at 200mph. With 700 horsepower under your right foot, an F1 car is not for the feint of heart and is not the type of car that you will be able to jump into and immediately be able to drive.

Renault F1 realizes this and has put together a program where you will switch between driving a single-seater formula Renault car, to being the co-driver in a Megane Trophy piloted by one of the teams reserve F1 drivers, before eventually getting behind the wheel of an F1 car for yourself for 2 laps of the challenging Hungaroring circuit. If any of have ever watched the “Top Gear” episode where RIchard Hammond takes on pretty much the same task you know what I am talking About, If you havn’t seen it this is what you will be up against:

According to Renault F1:

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

Once you’ve tamed the F1 car or even more likely it has tamed you, you’ll then be strapped into a three-seater F1 car driven by one of the team’s reserve drivers to see how a F1 type car really performs. What better way to fully appreciate the brutal acceleration, impossible cornering speeds, and energy-zapping brakes of modern F1 machinery?

Announcing the programe Renault F1 Goes on to explain:

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.

I think that pretty much sums it up. Just wish I had the money.
