My dad loved sports, any and all sports. So my first memories of F1 were his mentions of the race results through the heady Schumacker Ferrari days. There wasn’t a lot of coverage then so we would watch the sports news to see the results covered in a few seconds.

Then in 2007, I had the opportunity to host a group of clients at the Melbourne Grand Prix. The entire weekend was an assault on my senses and I was hooked. For me the racing is only a part of the package, the cars are insanely cool, the technology is incredible, and the drivers have talent and skill that is out of this world. You have the personalities of the drivers, the principals and the engineers.

Since my first race in 2007 I have been to Melbourne another 6 times, Singapore twice and Malaysia, Austin and Mexico. My wife and I are planning to go to many more in the coming years… 

If you like what we are doing or are interested in getting involved, please get in touch.
