A Grand Prix Experience

On Sunday 29th June, Northampton town centre kicks off a week-long celebration of our motorsport heritage, with the final celebration event taking place at the Silverstone Grand Prix on Sunday 6th July.

From 10:00am head to Abington Street and the Market Square to join in with the festivities and speak to our tutors from NC4M. We’ll be there giving out course information (plus a few goodies) and explaining what it’s really like to work with a race team.
