Tottenham have announced a partnership with Formula 1, which will see a go-kart track being built in front of their stadium.
An electric karting track will be installed under the South Stand, the result of a “15 year strategic partnership” between the Premier League club and F1.
The £1bn Tottenham Hotspur Stadium hosted the first Premier League game in April 2019.
In addition to music concerts, the 62,850 capacity stadium has also hosted boxing, the NFL and rugby.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy said: Since building this stadium, it has been our aspiration to see how far we can push boundaries by providing a world-class experience that draws people from all over the world.
He added: “We’ve been able to bring some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment to the N17 in London. We are very excited to see what this long-term partnership with F1 will bring to our global, national and local communities.” Creating learning and career opportunities for local youth, including a driving academy program to identify future F1 drivers. The karting experience will be a destination and place that families, friends and aspiring drivers from around the world will want to visit and enjoy, appealing to new audiences and providing an accessible entry point into the world of motorsport,” said Domenicali.
Our brands share a vision of creating life-changing career opportunities, promoting diversity and inclusion and advocating environmental sustainability – our innovative partnership will bring it all to life.
Spurs said the club will work with F1 on initiatives to promote environmental responsibility as it pursues its goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.
