Button to race along the streets of Manchester

Jenson Button to demonstrate F1 car in Manchester

18 August 2011

I've just caught wind of some exciting news, Button will be coming to Manchester this Bank holiday weekend, on Monday 29th August as part of a three-day event organised by McLaren's official sponsor Vodafone. For those of you with local knowledge of Manchester geography, you can expect to see him driving through Deansgate, then onto John Dalton Street and into Albert Square. Not only will we be able to watch this event for free but there are opportunities for fans to win some amazing prizes too. They are offering one lucky Vodafone VIP winner the chance to ride in the McLaren MP4-12C with Jenson himself. Other prizes include a meet and greet with Jenson in the VIP section of the Hilton Manchester Hotel too! The whole event runs for the entire bank holiday weekend from Saturday 27th - Monday 29th August with race simulators and other demonstrations for you to take part in. If anyone plans to attend this event, send me your pictures afterwards, sounds like it's going to be unmissable!
