The Bavaria City Racing festival, which is endorsed by Irish F1 legend Eddie Jordan, will give everyone a first hand experience of Formula 1. Members of the public will experience for the first time ever the sights, sounds and smells of F1 right in the heart of the capital.
The free event promises something for everyone with a number of track side zones such as the Family Zone, the Gaming Zone, the Fashion & Beauty Zone, the Vodafone F1 Zone and the Monster Energy Zone.
Eddie Jordan said “This will be a very special event and the potential for Dublin to show off its beauty and uniqueness to a massive international audience is huge. People will travel from all over Europe to attend the event and we have an opportunity to really capitalise on this opportunity if we grab it with both hands and showcase Dublin and Ireland as a modern European city with its own unique people, culture and history.”
Also on Saturday 2nd June, Bavaria City Racing will host a free Pre Event Party for members of the public in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar. The Pre Event Party will feature live performances from Eddie Jordan & the Robbers, Ryan Sheridan and some special guests. A host of other free gigs will also be taking place on the night in venues around the city centre.
The main event gets underway at 12 noon on Sunday 3rd June with five full hours of on track entertainment. Dublin’s city centre will be closed for the day to accommodate the city track which encompasses iconic Dublin landmarks such as O’Connell Bridge, Trinity College, the Customs House, Liberty Hall, the Samuel Beckett Bridge and the Convention Centre Dublin.
