For the 2015 United States Grand Prix, Badger GP brought the action from the Circuit of the Americas across the pond to London for a special Grand Prix Bash with 100 fans together for event that can be described as simply, epic.

With qualifying postponed to race day the GP Bash started early to screen qualifying live on a massive cinema screen before the Bash even got started. The Grand Prix Pub quiz followed with fans battling it out for a podium position to win prizes from COTA themselves who endorsed the event along with our sponsors.

After some banter, the full race coverage was shown, complimented by Badger GP Bingo to keep things interesting – come lights out we had a fantastic grand prix, action packed from start to finish, definitely the race of season so far. And on top of that we had a new World Champion crowned too.

Some post-race banter led up to the Big Prize Raffle where many of the fans won prizes including tickets to the 2016 US Grand Prix, Paul Oz Lewis Hamilton art work, bespoke Graham and Leigh COTA track sculptures, signed Red Bull Racing caps, signed Lotus F1 Team driver cards, Diecast Race Models mini helmet replicas, Force India team shirts, Racing Gold up-cycled F1 parts, McLaren F1 signed caps, as well as loads of COTA merchandise and rather a lot of Pirelli caps.

Judging by feedback and tweets, the event was a massive success, once again Badger GP brings fan focused F1 fun to the fans and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for coming and making such a memorable day.
