Five Best Great Christmas Gift Ideas

23 October 2019

When the snowman brings the snow, well he just might like to know, whether you’re going to make a motorsport-related purchase this Christmas? Check out Motorsport Live’s gifts to buy your loved ones in time for the big day on December 25.

The nights are drawing in, it's getting colder, and Hallowe'en is rapidly approaching, meaning it's nearly November, and thus December is just around the corner! Motorsport Live has a wealth of offerings for the festive period and whatever your budget we've got you covered.

Gift Voucher

Want to buy a loved one a motorsport experience, but don't know exactly what they'd prefer, or the exact date on which they'd be able to use it? Then a Motorsport Live gift voucher is the perfect present. A gift voucher can be used to contribute towards any race event, providing you with flexibility as to which event you and your loved one can visit. Gift vouchers range in pricing levels while there is the option to add a special customised message during the ordering stage. The recipient has 13 months after ordering in which to make their booking, and, depending on your preference, you can receive it printed in a glossy version via post, or digitised by email.

Race ticket

This it the ultimate gift - a ticket to a Formula 1 or MotoGP race. The 2019 season is winding towards its conclusion but packages for 2020 events are already on sale. Formula 1 will race at 22 destinations next season, with Vietnam joining the calendar in April, and the Netherlands returning to the fray in May. There's also the traditional season-opener in Australia, not to mention the blue-riband event in Monaco, and of course the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Motorsport Live can currently offer Formula 1 tickets to nine 2020 grands prix, and MotoGP tickets to a number of races, while more events will be added to the system in the imminent future, so you can pick your destination of choice.

F1 team experience

Want to immerse yourself in a Formula 1 race but do it slightly differently? Then check out the experiences available courtesy of Red Bull Racing and Williams Racing. Through Motorsport Live you can embark on an experience with both of these teams, which are among the most successful in the history of Formula 1 with 24 Drivers' and Constructors' titles between them. With Williams, the highlight is the ability to watch a Formula 1 race from the factory itself with Williams Race Days, a cost-effective opportunity, with no need to leave the United Kingdom, while enjoying state-of-the-art facilities and top-level hospitality. With Red Bull Racing, there are a number of exclusive events and dinners throughout the year. Each event is listed under each race it involves. Additionally, contact us if you are interested in a factory tour, which we can arrange on your behalf.

Come and see Autosport International

Motorsport Live owner Motorsport Network is the host of the annual Autosport International Show, which takes place at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre shortly after Christmas. The venue is open to spectators on January 11 and 12 2020, and once there you'll find a wealth of activities and attractions to keep you entertained throughout the weekend. The whole world of motorsport is brought together under one roof, ranging from Formula 1 show cars, Le Mans, the World Rally Championship, British Touring Cars, and much, much more. There's also a dedicated section for engineering, not to mention a live action arena, with talented racers and stunt acts keeping the entertainment going throughout the course of the weekend.

Pre-Season Testing

Fancy something really special, but at the fraction of the normal cost? Montjuic Club Hospitality at the Pre-Season Testing in Barcelona is a way to get up close and personal with Formula 1, in a more relaxed atmosphere than at a race. Testing takes place in two, three-day session between 19th-21st, then 26th-28th February. With a suite based over the pit garages, you can enjoy snacks, a buffet lunch, soft and alcoholic drinks; whilst watching the cars come in and out of the pit lane and garages. You may even see some practice pit stops! Also included is a 30-minute paddock tour, a service road tour, and access to all General Admission and certain grandstands! This "ultimate-fan" gift is due to go on sale in November, and last year was available for only £230 per person. Register now to be notified once this experience goes on sale!
