Drive of your life
Published: 07 Aug 2015
For those who have a need for speed and love being behind the wheel of a track car, it must seem like folk like Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button have the ultimate dream job.
Sadly not everyone will make it to the heights of Formula 1 racing but there are also many jobs behind the scenes that are equally exciting – a great one being those men and women who get to test drive the cars these competitors will eventually race in.
If you are not sure if this would be a dream job for you, here is a competition that could give you an insight into that occupation.
Infiniti has launched the ‘Ultimate Test Drive’ campaign providing one lucky motorist from the UK the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a real Formula 1 car with instruction from Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver Daniil Kvyat.
Customers who visit any UK Infiniti centre and complete a test drive will be entered into a prize draw.
From there, 25 finalists will be selected to go head-to-head at Rockingham Motor Speedway where they will be assessed on all aspects of their driving ability and car control by a panel of judges – including Infiniti Red Bull Racing Test & Reserve driver Sebastien Buemi.
One UK winner will be selected to join winners from Russia and the Middle East for the ultimate prize.
Starting with driver training on the Infiniti Red Bull Racing simulator at the team’s factory in Milton Keynes, they will then be flown to Dubai to test drive a real, fully race specification Formula 1 car with personal guidance from Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver Daniil Kvyat.
After the driving experience of a lifetime, they will travel to Abu Dhabi to experience a VIP hospitality weekend for two at the Grand Prix, courtesy of Infiniti.
The ‘Ultimate Drive’ campaign is operating from all UK Infiniti centres and will close on August 16.
