Racers can get to grips with a range of remote control race cars and take on the track on the Museum’s mezzanine, which overlooks the iconic Silverstone circuit, home of the British Grand Prix.

Racing fans can make a pit stop and take a break from all the action at the Museum’s Refuel Café which will be open during the evening alongside the attraction’s shop, where motorsport fans can pick up some exclusive racing merchandise to commemorate their night.
