Zoom into the Gorge

Motorsports fans can meet a racing driver, get up close to a Formula 3 car and drive a ‘virtual’ car on the race simulator at the Pit Stop event at Enginuity in Coalbrookdale over the weekend of 9 and 10 March. The day will be packed with hands-on activities for visitors of all ages to enjoy, including having a go at changing a wheel on the F3 car.

Ironbridge Gorge Museums have partnered with the University of Wolverhampton Race team to stage this family event, which will see the University running four interactive sessions focused around engineering, racing and science. As well as the Formula 3 Renault racing car, which takes centre stage, students will be showcasing two Morgan cars and their Formula Student race car. Formula 3 race driver Shane Kelly will talk about his life, while race engineer Matt Fenton will explain what’s needed to get a car race-ready.

Tickets can be booked at ironbridge.org.uk or bought at the gate and cost £5 for children and students and £7 for adults; under 5s free.
