Formula One is a motor sports spectacle with races or grand prix in a number of cities around the world like Shanghai, Abu Dhabi and London. The worldwide phenomenon is watched by fans who follow drivers like Louis Hamilton and Jenson Button vying to be considered the best racer on the planet.
Kenya also has its die hard supporters of Formula One who converge at designated areas to watch the game. These folks can now get to watch the races at the race tracks in the host cities as a new initiative to facilitate this was unveiled at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi on Tuesday evening. The initiative which is a partnership between African Touch Safaris and Etihad airlines allows folks to go to the forthcoming races at a subsidised cost.
The event was attended by race enthusiasts as well as the guest of honour of the event Media Owners Association and Radio Africa chairman Kiprono Kittony.
