Test Drive

Infiniti Really Wants You To Race An F1 Car

And all you have to do is test drive one of its road cars first.

It's hard to imagine any of our readers who has not, at one point, had the fantasy of getting behind the wheel of a true Formula One race car. In fact, who hasn't spent a great part of their childhood trying to mimic the sound and thrill of piloting one of these insane track monsters? Well, now Infiniti is offering all prospective buyers (and those pretending to be) in the UK the chance to participate in a competition where the winner will be given a go in a Red Bull Formula One car under the guidance of F1 driver Daniil Kyvat.

Following the initial test drives, Infiniti UK will shortlist 25 finalists who'll be taken to the Rockingham Motor Speedway. There, their skills and driving abilities will be tested by true F1 racers. The winner will then be taken to Red Bull Racing's Milton Keynes simulator, and then flown to a VIP weekend at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November. "Never before has Infiniti offered a prize of this caliber. We are delighted to be able to reward potential and existing customers with an opportunity like this," said Carl Bayliss, country manager for Infiniti UK. Unfortunately, the contest is only open to UK drivers. But for eligible participants, an hour in a Q50 certainly sounds like a fair trade off, doesn't it?
