Do you think that you have what it takes to drive a real Formula 1 car on a Grand Prix circuit?

Philips, the official sponsors of the AT&T Williams team, is giving away the chance to drive a recent AT&T Williams Formula One car in 2009 following on from the success of last year’s competition.

Through their online ‘Driving Academy’, one lucky winner will get to drive a Williams FW29 for five laps of the Silverstone national circuit following intensive training from the Williams team.

This chance of a lifetime will include one-on-one training from current F1 driver Kazuki Nakajima at Silverstone.

Williams driver, Nico Rosberg, said: “When you first drive a Formula One car you just cannot believe the power and the speed. This is an amazing competition and will be a real thrill for the winner.”

Patrick Overwijk, Philips’ F1 Sponsorship Manager, said: “Last season we found fourteen very talented drivers who demonstrated a perfect combination of skill, track awareness, consistency and a willingness to learn.

“In 2009, we’re hoping that the Philips Driving Academy will unearth a number of men and women who also have what it takes to drive the AT&T Williams car.”
