School Holidays and Formula One

Goodness me, Te Papa is a veritable seething mass of children and their families… YEP the school holidays are back on. We’ve got some very cool stuff for you to come and see and do!

Go and see the F1 beauties in Formula One™ – The Great Design Race, Level 4 – there are floor talks by the experts such Bob McMurray and Craig Russell – you can ask them all sorts of questions. These talks are especially for kids and their families and are on this Thursday at 1.00-2.00, Friday at 1.30-2.30, and Saturday, 1.00-2.00.

From tomorrow, Wednesday 30 September until Tuesday 6 October we have the Toyota Racing Series team visiting  Te Papa. THIS MEANS that they’ll have heaps of things on display like their transporter truck parked out front with a pit paddock set up.

Inside Te Papa on level 2 you’ll be able to see their 2 seater car – this isn’t one of their normal racing cars (although being a co-driver in it would be very cool!) but one they use only very occasionally to give a very lucky person a ride.

For all those who’ve been into the Formula One™ – The Great Design Race exhibition – keep your tickets, go down to Level 2 and at you’ll be able to sit in the TRS showcar and not only get your photo taken but a little while later be able to collect the proof you were there – the photo printed at our HP station for free. This will be at certain times throughout the day so I will keep you posted about the times.

Once you’ve used your ticket to get your free photo – write your name and contact details on the back of it and put it into the lucky draw to win a Toyota Racing Series hospitality pack  for 4 to see the 55th New Zealand Grand Prix  at Manfeild 12 -14 February, 2010. I was looked after by Toyota at Manfeild earlier this year and believe me they’ll look after you! I had so much fun – I’ll be back at Manfeild to see the races again next year.
