From Monaco to Silverstone, join us for an unforgettable tour of the fastest and most thrilling sport ever invented from two of its bone fide superstars: former F1 World Champion Damon Hill and Grand Prix winner Johnny Herbert.

They say: ‘Despite its immense popularity, it’s often been argued that F1 can be a bit too serious. Well, nil desperandum, ladies and gentlemen, because we, Damon Hill OBE and Johnny Herbert DNF, are here to prove the doubters wrong by swapping honest, forthright opinions and stories involving automotive derring-do. And derring-don’t.’
