Exclusive PalmerSport event with Indy 500 legend Dario Franchitti

Monday, March 07 2016

PalmerSport is hosting an exclusive event with three-time Indianapolis 500-winner and four-time IndyCar Champion Dario Franchitti, featuring a full day programme, plus high-speed passenger laps and much more on Tuesday 19 April.

This special one-off PalmerSport day will feature driving time in all of our high-performance sports and racing cars at Bedford Autodrome, including the stunning Formula 3000 single-seater and the JP-LM sports prototype.

And participants can witness the mastery of an all-time racing legend first-hand in a full-throttle Super Ride with Dario in the JP-LM Sports Prototype. Dario might be best known for his single-seater exploits, but he won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2007 and the Daytona 24 Hours in 2008, so he knows a thing or two about driving high-downforce sports cars too - buckle in and enjoy the ride!

Dario will be on hand for photo opportunities, and will orchestrate proceedings at the end-of-day prizegiving. You can also put forward any questions that you might have to him over a Q and A at lunch time.

Since his retirement from racing, motorsport-obsessed Franchitti has continued to be actively involved as the expert analyst on Formula E's English language broadcasts, in addition to acting as an advisor to Chip Ganassi Racing's crack IndyCar team, and supporting young Scottish racing drivers.

The Dario Franchitti event on Tuesday 19 April will feature driving time in all of these cars:

Formula 3000 single-seater

Palmer Jaguar JP-LM le Mans prototype

Ariel Atom - PalmerSport Edition

Caterham 7 Superlight


Land Rover Defender

Places are available for £950 plus VAT per guest, and limited to just 50 spaces in five teams of ten. This includes all the driving activities, catering, vehicle damage cover and the passenger laps.
