By on

Formula One has announced that the very first official Formula 1 Exhibition will be held in Madrid beginning on March 24, 2023 and running all the way through July 16.

The very first F1 Exhibition will be hosted at the renowned IFEMA MADRID and will run until Sunday 16 July 2023, with the aim of providing a stunning adventure through the extraordinary world of Formula 1. Visitors will be able to witness a wide range of never-before-seen artefacts and contributions from the sport’s most legendary teams, experts and personalities.

The special exhibition will come to life in partnership with Round Room Live, with the venue featuring six purpose-built rooms, each specially designed in collaboration with award-winning artists, filmmakers and craftspeople. Formula One promises that "the show uses bold, technology-led design features and large-scale interactive displays to lift the lid on Formula 1’s past, present and future."

"Several years in the making, the stunning 90-minute experience neatly combines spectacular audio-visual design, rare film and imagery, engineering and educational displays, sculptural pieces and iconic Grand PrixTM cars to deliver an immersive experience for everyone - from avid followers to younger fans and families," said F1's official statement.

Tickets will go on general sale in December.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “The opening of this spectacular exhibition marks a significant moment in the history of Formula 1. As the sport continues to grow at an exponential rate, it’s vital that our fanbase remains at the forefront of everything we do.

“Launching this world-class international exhibition allows more fans around the world to fall in love with F1, while providing the perfect platform for us to honour the sport’s incredible history. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this project and helped to build an exhibition that captures the heart and soul of the sport we all love.”

Timothy Harvey, the exhibition's Lead Curator and Producer, added: “To curate and produce the world’s first official Formula 1 Exhibition has been a huge honour. This show takes fans behind the curtain of Formula 1, providing a new range of fascinating perspectives and unexpected stories about the sport.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support of so many of the F1 teams and luminaries. I believe the show celebrates Formula 1’s rich history and heritage in a dramatic and fun way that will engage everyone from avid fans to young kids and families. It’s been many years in the making and now I can’t wait to open the doors in Madrid!”
