This October will see five lucky INFINITI prize-winners realise a lifelong dream, when they get the chance to test drive a real Renault Sport Formula 1 Team car.

INFINITI is now technical partner to the Renault Sport Formula 1 Team, a role that involves helping Renault to develop their performance hybrid technology and in particular, the power unit’s Energy Recovery System (ERS). The innovative concepts they produce on the racetrack, are then transferred through to the road cars of the Renault-Nissan brand where possible, providing the ultimate driving experience for their customers.

The highly successful INFINITI Engineering Academy, now in its fourth year, ensures Renault have a continuing supply of young, fresh-thinking engineering talent at their disposal, whilst giving students the world over a unique opportunity to get a foot in the door of the automotive world.

This year, INFINITI are set to host a number of F1 related events, which fans of the Renault Sport Formula 1 Team will not want to miss.

There will be a number of thrilling prizes up for grabs, which include visits to the Renault Sport Formula 1 Team technical centre to watch race days by video link-up, as well as a chance to explore the team’s engine factory in France.

The main event however, will be the Ultimate Test Drive competition, which offers the chance to experience what it is like to drive an actual Formula 1 machine, at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France.

The prize includes flights, local accommodation, exclusive F1 driving sessions, a passenger ride in an official Renault Sport Formula 1 Car, as well as a debrief and data analysis with the Renault Sport Formula 1 Team engineers.

The competition will run between July 6 and September 26 in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK. To be in with a shot of winning one of these fantastic prizes, entrants will need to register on the website.
