Top Formula 1 fan site Badger GP will be holding the latest in their Grand Prix screening events in London this Sunday.
The website – famed for its distinctly idiosyncratic and humourous look Badger GP are hosting the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix at the Roxy Bar and Screen just off Borough Street in London.
It follows on from the success of the Australian Grand Prix Breakfast, which was held in the same venue back in March.
As well as the screening the Grand Prix itself, full build-up and post-race coverage will be screened in high definition on a giant cinema-grade screen, while the sound of Formula 1’s current V6 monsters will be complemented by glorious surround sound.
For those also interested in the finer details in following a race, there will also be large timing and scoring screen, with F1-related Twitter feed, in operation.
Following the race, there will be a Grand Prix Quiz, a fan forum and a raffle, with prizes ranging from “Classic Monaco Grand Prix Art Prints” from Retro Formula 1, an “F1 2012 ‘Champions'” poster from Octane Photos, while Bang & Olufsen have delightfully offered a chance to win the perfect “F1 Viewing Experience” and a set of “Form 2” headphones. Also up for grabs will be tickets for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
In addition, should a ticket holder be wearing black tie and suit affair, they will be rewarded with an extra five raffle tickets.
Doors are at hangover clasping 11am and tickets are £10 and are available from Grand Prix Screenings, with a raffle ticket going to each entrant. Don’t forget to check out BadgerGP.com for more events and bits and bobs and news.
To be in with a extra chance of winning, an additional five tickets can be purchased for £5, while a batch of ten tickets is available for a mere £8. However, do sign up quickly as there are only 100 spots available and (I believe) most have already been filled.
As always, the Grand Prix starts at 1pm, so get there early to ensure a seat. The Roxy Bar and Screen is a short walk from either Borough or London Bridge tube stations and is very easy to find as long as you can walk in a straight line.
