Hilton has offered HfP readers the exclusive opportunity to win a money-can’t-buy prize for any Formula 1 fan. Get your racing gloves ready!

Hilton is giving one lucky winner and a friend the chance to experience an unforgettable sleepover inside the prestigious McLaren Technology Centre in Woking during the weekend of the Australian Grand Prix (1st-2nd April).

This genuinely unique prize includes:

  • A full tour of the McLaren Technology Centre
  • An afternoon of activities including the Pit-Stop Challenge.
  • Evening meal at the McLaren Technology Centre followed by further activities and entertainment
  • A night’s accommodation in a double bed on the iconic Boulevard
  • Exclusive Australian Grand Prix live screening with breakfast and snack provided

The experience is just part of the benefits Hilton offers that make its guests feel cared for – with amazing service, confirmed connecting rooms, pet-friendly properties and contactless check-in and digital keys available through the Hilton Honors app.

This unique, behind the scenes package is for two people. On Saturday afternoon, you will experience a full tour of the centre and take part in various activities including the Pit-Stop Challenge, followed by interactive activities and entertainment after a delicious evening meal.

You’ll then head off to your very own bed on the iconic Boulevard ahead of an early rise the next day, where you’ll be woken to watch the Australian Grand Prix at an exclusive live screening. Breakfast and other snacks will be provided.

To enter, please head to the widget at the bottom of the article and answer a simple multiple choice question and provide your details so that we can contact the winner. If you have any problems viewing the widget, please use this page to access the competition on a landing page.

The competition closes THIS SUNDAY 12th March.

Please note that both you and your guest must be over 18 to attend.

Hilton Honors Experiences

The competition is all part of Hilton Honors Experiences, which offers Hilton Honors members exclusive access to a variety of events and entertainment using points to purchase tickets.

The winner will be joined by some other lucky Hilton Honors members who recently redeemed points for packages to attend via the Hilton Experiences platform.

Some of these experiences are genuinely exciting. Rob, Rhys and I went along to a ‘surprise guest’ Hilton Honors Experiences concert last Christmas at Hilton London Metropole and the surprise guest was British artist Stormzy. Bearing in mind this is an artist who sold out the O2 three times over last year, Stormzy playing an intimate performance 10 feet away from your comfortable armchair with complimentary champagne in hand really is a money-can’t-buy experience.

For F1 fans, the Hilton sponsorship of McLaren continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. As well offering tickets to the British Grand Prix, other F1 Experiences that have been offered in the past include having Lando Norris picking your child up from school in a McLaren supercar (see it on YouTube here) and a virtual race against one of the F1 drivers – all redeemable with Hilton Honors points.

Thanks very much to Hilton Honors for providing us with this prize and best of luck to everyone entering. Terms and conditions are linked below at the bottom of the widget.

    Great prize. But why does it need my Date of Birth just for entry… I see it as more personal data for companies to loose if a data breach.

    • Rob says:

      If it turns out you are under 18, you will have deliberately lied (as opposed to claiming you made a mistake and didn’t read the rules) and you can be disqualified with no issues.

    • Lou says:

      Do what I do, just make sure the year is correct…

  • Frank says:

    Hi there
    Whenever I try to enter, I get an error message saying ‘something went wrong’.
    Any idea why please?
    Thank you

  • jshRR says:

    Same error message for me – but it did show ‘your entry ‘ as 1 (out of 2030)

  • Georgina says:

    Do you know when winners will be contacted? It doesn’t say in the T&Cs

    • Rob says:

      We sent the name to Hilton on Monday but they sent it back today asking us to do it, so Sinead will be emailing the person concerned during the day.

  • David says:

    Has this competition been awarded if not when?

    • Rob says:

      Yes. We drew a winner but they could no longer make the date, so we drew a 2nd winner yesterday. Once they are verified we will publish the name. If you’ve not had an email from Sinead on our team in the last 24 hours, it wasn’t you – sorry.
