Formula 1 has reached an agreement to produce a first-of-its-kind international travelling exhibition and immersive experience covering the exciting past, present, and future of the FIA Formula One World Championship™.
Working with Round Room Studios, the world-renowned production company that has produced or promoted numerous smash hit exhibitions such as Jurassic World: The Exhibition, Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free, and Mandela: the official exhibition, the Formula 1 Exhibition will include historic artefacts, new commissions and will use unprecedented access to the film archives at F1 to deliver an immersive and interactive journey through the extraordinary story of motorsport’s greatest spectacle.
Curated by a renowned cast of F1 experts, historians and journalists, this is the first official exhibition in Formula 1 history. From legendary race cars to special contributions from the sport’s most enduring legends, the Formula 1 Exhibition will be a must-visit destination for all F1 fans.
The Formula 1 Exhibition is being designed and produced by Round Room Studios and developed in partnership with Manhattan West, a global strategic investments company.
Details of the first Formula 1 Exhibition showing, including venue and on-sale date for tickets will be announced in autumn 2022. For further news and updates, sign up at www.F1Exhibition.com

The launch of a world-class international exhibition for fans around the world to experience and enjoy, led by a best-in-class production company, is a natural next step for our sport.
“Having watched its creative development come to life, we couldn’t be more excited by this project’s potential – it takes audiences ‘behind the curtain’ and celebrates F1’s rich history and heritage like never before.
“This will be a destination for every fan and we’re grateful to the many organisations and personalities from across Formula 1 that have contributed to this spectacular new show.”

Next year, we open the doors on a next-generation entertainment experience that will capture the imagination of all its visitors – from avid fans to young kids and families – we can’t wait!”
