Williams Martini Racing and official partner Sure, have given a lucky Formula One fan a once in a lifetime opportunity.

IT technician, James Hopkins will be the first ever Pit Crew Apprentice, beating thousands of petrol heads.

James will travel to Milan on the 2 September and will join the Williams Pit Crew for an weekend that he will never forget.

The opportunity will be incredible: “You can never really prepare yourself for a phone call like that. Meeting Valtteri and Felipe was just incredible and they gave me some great advice on what to expect and work on ahead of my trip to Italy. Hopefully the team can finish on the podium.”

This season Williams have consistently topped the pit stop times, showing they have one of the best pit crews in Formula One.

The newly crowned Sure pit crew apprentice will fly to Milan and experience the full Formula One lifestyle, meeting the drivers, having lunch with the team and going to the celebrity hotspots in Milan.

James added; “”I’ve been a huge motor racing fan for most of my life, I even wake up in the middle of the night to watch the Australian Grand Prix, so it’ll be great to see what happens in the garage up close and personal.”
