More than 40 event professionals from agencies including Zibrant Live, Primary Live, HelmsBriscoe and Ex Events travelled to Northamptonshire on Friday evening (16 January) for the two-day event that included a tour of the facilities, a drive around the world-famous Formula 1 track and an evening dinner in the British Racing Drivers' Club.

The group stayed in the Snoozebox hotel, Silverstone's innovative track-side accommodation, which includes 76 en-suite rooms inside a series of shipping containers.

On the Saturday, teambuilding agency Bluehat Group organised a series of activities in the venue's primary event space, the Silverstone Wing, before the group headed to the track for some more testing challenges, including changing the tires on an F1 car against the clock.

The highlight of the weekend took place on the track itself when delegates were driven around the circuit that has hosted racing greats such as Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Ayrton Senna and James Hunt in its 66-year history.
