Red Bull Racing Factory

If you follow me at all on Twitter, you'll know I'm an F1 fan, and during the season, every other Sunday is dedicated to watching the race on TV (providing it doesn't clash with a football match). Also, some of you may have already seen this post last week, when it went up accidentally. Whoops.

A few weeks ago, Pepe Jeans invited me along to a tour of the Red Bull Racing Factory in Milton Keynes and I was so excited to go. I'm a Sebastian Vettel fan (he races for Red Bull for those that don't know) and also went last year, where I really enjoyed myself, so was very eager to go again.

We were met at reception by this great F1 car on the wall, and a lot of trophies. We know Sebastion Vettel is a winner, so of course there were a lot of trophies to admire.

We started off the day with a talk about the cars, followed by a hearty lunch. I learnt a lot during the talk, from all the prep that goes into the races to information about the team itself, and all the major members.

We were also given a tour of the factory and got to admire some gorgeous pieces, and check out the machines that are used while making the cars. Although, understandably, we weren't able to take pictures during the tour, we were able to take pictures with this car and admire it in all it's beauty.

Are you a racing fan? If so, if given the opportunity, I'd definitely recommend taking a tour of an F1 Factory. It's so much fun to see how these amazing cars are designed and what goes into them.
My next mission is to go to one of the F1 races in the upcoming season.

This looks like brilliant fun, it was such a shame that Vettel wasn't there! I went to McLaren's headquarters this time last year and it was amazing. I woul also massively reccommend going to a race next season! Expensive, but if you're a Vettel fan then it's definitely value for money! (Hamilton crashed out when I went to Spa - heartbreaking!)

Omg, that's so amazing! My fiancé is such a big F1 fan... I'm bit, too ;) It's nice to see others who enjoy it as well. This year, I was totally rooting for Vettel, but next year as Räikkönen comes back... Well, he's Finnish, gotta support that :D xoxo

I love that you are a racing fan. You look adorable next to the stock car. Sadly, I am not a fan of racing. I have never learned how to drive. :(
