The Williams F1 team is giving exclusive access to its Grand Prix Collection at a one-off charity event in aid of Save the Children.

The team will be opening their doors of its Grove facility on Saturday 28 September to give guests an up-close view of some of the most technologically advanced machines on the planet. The black tie event will also include a presentation from Kirsty Andrew of Williams Advanced Engineering, plus the opportunity to take the wheel and experience the thrill of an F1 simulator.

Later in the evening, BBC celebrity Jonty Hearnden will be overseeing the auction of a host of valuable lots, including tickets for Williams race days, while a raffle will offer a number of exclusive prizes, including the chance for avid F1 followers to take home a piece of the action.
