Formula One Bucket List

With unlimited cash, my ultimate F1 Bucket List experience would be following the Formula One season for an entire year; travelling the world, seeing every race.

And of course owning an F1 car, a track car!

But realistically, here is my F1 Bucket List.  The one's in bold I've done.


  • Attend as many Grand Prix as possible (6 so far; 5 Albert Park, 1 Sepang)
  • Drive an open-wheel race car 
  • 2 or 3 seater F1 rides
  • Drive an F1 car
  • Drive the Nurburgring


Basically, any museum showing F1 cars or Grand Prix history.  But these one's definitely:

  • Ferrari Museum, Maranello
  • Donington Museum
  • The Jim Clark Room
  • Brooklands Museum
  • The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu England
  • Hockenheimring Motorsport Museum
  • Cité de l'Automobile
  • Red Bull Hangar 7
  • Driver specific collections, e.g. Bruce McLaren, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso and Nigel Mansell


  • Senna's grave, Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Senna statue, Imola
  • Jim Clark memorial, Hockenheim


  • Visit old F1 circuits
  • Maranello, Italy


  • FerrariWorld, Abu Dhabi
  • Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • Various team headquarters (e.g. Red Bull Hall of Fame)
  • Go-karting, Kerpen Germany

And finally on the home front, I'd love to have a room or space to display all of my F1 collection.  This would go along perfectly with my state-of-the-art sim racing setup.  Oh yes ... and my own private racetrack.

What is on your F1 Bucket List?
