World's first official Formula One arcade bar set to open

Formula One fans are set to be given the ultimate F1 experience, with an official arcade opening in London, which will combine all the luxury of the sport with the chance to try out the skills needed to be a driver.

Those who visit the arcade, in London, will be given the chance to race in any of the official tracks from around the globe, with 60 machines.

It is set to open next month, with the doors open to the public on November 24th, and will be located in One New Change, St Pauls.

The idea for the arcade has been put together by Kindred Concepts and Adam Breeden, who is the pioneer of such socialising projects as dart's bar Flight Club, bowling alley All Star Lanes and golf's Puttshack.

As well as taking on friends in virtual races, there will also be luxury food and cocktails on offer to people, including champagne cocktails, which is really in keeping with the sports glamour.

Managing Director of Commercial, Formula 1, Brandon Snow, said, We are very excited to introduce F1 Arcade, a brand-new premium entertainment venue that everyone can enjoy.

"F1 Arcade is an ambitious project that will allow people to get even closer to the Formula 1 experience by giving guests the chance to get behind the wheel of bespoke racing simulators in stylish surroundings with a high-quality hospitality offering.

“Kindred Concepts and Formula 1 have worked tirelessly to ensure F1 Arcade will provide everyone who visits, fans and non-fans alike and regardless of age or ability, an incredible premium experience.”

And Breeden, the founder and CEO of F1 Arcade added, "We are thrilled to offer the first of these premium and exclusive entertainment experiences right in the heart of London.

"It has been my most ambitious project to date, taking everything we know about competitive socialising venues and adding the strength of the Formula 1 brand."

Fans will be hoping that there's more excitement in the end of their races than in the conclusion of this year's Formula One season.

Max Verstappen wrapped things up for the drivers' championship at the Japanese Grand Prix last month, with another four races to go.

Red Bull are still waiting to find out how they're going to be punished for the 2021 season, after being found to have broken the spending cap.

They are expected to only face a fine, however there have been calls from rival fans to punish them more harshly.

That season ended in huge controversy, with Verstappen pipping Lewis Hamilton to the title on the final lap of the final race of the year.
