Lewis Hamilton and Prince Harry had the opportunity to open a new museum at the Silverstone circuit. The duo arrived in an electric car driven by Hamilton.
Hamilton and Prince Harry were greeted by dignitaries and the 1996 Formula 1 champion Damon Hill. The duo also met current F1 drivers George Russell and Alex Albon, as well as the local schoolchildren.
The Silverstone Experience houses cars and motorbikes from the last 70 years of racing and the British Racing Drivers’ Club’s archive. Visitors to the museum are able to try out replicas and play interactive games.
