FOTA UK Fans’ Forum
Tuesday 25th of June, 2013
On Wednesday 26th June 2013, FOTA in association with Marsh held a UK Fans’ Forum at Tower Place London. In the Atrium of the Marsh building overlooking the Tower of London were two F1 Show cars, one from McLaren and one from Marussia. The show cars were in place from midday and passers-by and employees from local business seized the opportunity to take a look and have their picture taken next to the cars.
200 fans attended the Forum and were able to have their picture taken alongside the cars before registration. Once inside the Forum, fans had an opportunity to meet with Team Executives for autographs and photos before the first panel session started.
The Forum was hosted by Jenny Gow from BBC Radio 5 Live. The first panel session had Sam Michael (McLaren), Claire Williams (Williams), and Graeme Lowdon (Marussia) who were followed by the drivers panel session. On the drivers session were Valtteri Bottas (Williams), Max Chilton (Marussia), Daniel Ricciardo (Scuderia Toro Rosso) and Martin Brundle (Former F1 Driver and current Sky Sports F1 Co-Commentator)
Fans unable to attend the forum were able to watch the stream live on the FOTA website.
