We are incredibly excited to announce a unique collaboration with Formula 1®, exclusively in our new Birmingham venue this November for a limited time.
F1 Arcade Birmingham in Chamberlain Square will be revealing a bespoke Formula 1 car for its opening, suspended above the bar, upside down! The car is crafted using a specialist design that prominently showcases special F1 Arcade branding and our signature colours. This distinctive livery was designed in-house by the F1 Arcade team and the application requires a combination of precision wrapping, laser and traditional hand painting techniques. This full-sized Formula 1 car weighs an impressive 600kg and will be on show as a centre piece at our all-new Birmingham venue. To hang it safely, the car will be engineered with a special frame, allowing guests to see the car in all its glory as its hung above The Octane Bar which was no mean feat in itself!
The F1 Arcade car isn’t just unique because of its exclusive livery design, it has an incredible, rich history making its first appearance at Silverstone in 2021 and traveling all around the world until its final appearance in Monza this year. Formula 1 showcased this very model in their official 2022 specification launch. The car also marks an example of the revolutionary work by Formula 1, to make the sport more sustainable with this new greener model. Beyond it being an official replica, it has a rich history of racing around various Formula 1 circuits, transitioning from the track to our venue.
Get yourself down to the venue before the end of January 2024 to be in with a chance of snapping a little piece of history, grabbing a selfie or simply enjoying a drink or two with the most unique background Birmingham has ever witnessed! Don’t miss the chance to marvel at our unreal Formula 1 car up close and personal.
