The 2010 Brazilian GP, that’s what!  Live, on the big screen, with loads of other grand prix fans, Virgin Racing GP team to answer your questions and provide unique insight as well as plenty of Badger’s famous prize-giveaways and banter – if you’re an F1 fan, it really is an event that you can’t afford to miss.  Further details are available below and if you have any questions, use the comments box at the bottom…


As well as the big race itself, there will be the best, most fun and entertaining (also educational) F1 quiz in the form of Badger’s Big GP Quiz – five rounds of five questions including picture and video rounds designed to entertain and challenge you all.

There’s also the big prize raffle, where everyone who attends will receive a number of raffle tickets and after the race numbers will be drawn – if you’re number’s up, that’s a good thing and you could be walking away with some great prizes.


Thanks to our very special guests Virgin Racing, there will be plenty of VR merchandise in the form of caps and team shirts given away as part of the Big F1 Quiz and the raffle.

And thanks to Mercedes GP sponsors, Henri Lloyd who are supporting the event, there we have a range of Mercedes GP merchandise up for grabs, for more info see here.

What with it being Badger’s Big Brazilian GP Bash, there will be some Badger items up for grabs too and also a few ‘wooden spoon’ prizes that we’ve picked up from being in and around F1 teams this year…

Of course, it goes without saying, but there will also be plenty of banter and fun to be had throughout the day too.


The event will be taking place at London’s premier sports venue, aptly called the “Sports Cafe” which as well as having more screens than you can shake a stick at and plenty of drinks and food on offer, it also has a full size replica of Damon Hill’s championship winning Williams F1 car.

The Sports Cafe is within walking distance of Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square, Badger recommends you use the Transport for London website to plan your journey and here’s a map so you can see where it is:
