Dynamo & John Illsley (Dire Straits) at British Grand Prix for Variety

Earlier this month, we were thrilled to be involved in another collaboration with Dynamo and Variety, the children's charity.  John Illsley from Dire Straits and his band also very kindly donated their time for Variety's first "Rock N Race" event at Silverstone.

On the Friday of the British Grand Prix, 150 Variety guests enjoyed an amazing day in the Drivers Lounge at the Lakeside VIP hospitality structure.  The bespoke marquee is in the middle of the circuit and with the sun shining, guests had superb views of both practice and qualifying sessions.

Dynamo, who is a Patron of Variety, performed some fantastic close-up magic for guests between the practice sessions and later on in the afternoon the brilliant John Illsley and his band played a rocking 90 minute set!

During the day, guests were also treated to a series of Q&A's by motor racing stars and legends, including Nigel Mansell.

Having led the qualifying, Lewis Hamilton also managed to take the time to have a quick chat with Warwick Davis, who is a wonderful supporter of Variety!
