Vodafone are holding a special three-day event in Manchester in just two weeks time.

The event will see Formula One driver Jenson Button drive his McLaren F1 car down Deansgate, John Dalton Street and into Albert Square.

As well as getting the chance to see the McLaren Mercedes on the streets of Manchester, there will also be an F1 fan zone, an F1 simulator, an working F1 pit garage and a go-kart track!

‘Driving an F1 car through Manchester is going to be a unique experience for me,’ 2009 world champion Jenson Button told

‘There’s a chance for the public to win some great prizes so I hope Manchester is going to be out in force and are looking forward to the bank holiday as much as I am.’

McLaren will hit the streets of Manchester on August 29th. If you intend on heading down why not take some photos and send them in to

Send your photos too: and we’d be delighted to publish them!
