The exhibition, organized by the Fernando Alonso Foundation and the Canal de Isabel II Management, opens towards the end of the year
• It will be the first time the Formula 1 driver’s collection is on show
• The cars he has raced throughout his career will be exhibited
As of today tickets for the Fernando Alonso exhibition, organized by the Community of Madrid and Canal Isabel II Management along with the driver’s foundation, can be purchased in advance. It will be the first time the cars, overalls and trophies amassed by the Asturian, who is the only Spaniard to have won the Formula 1 World Championship on two occasions, will be on show.
The exhibition will open its doors to the public in December and tickets can be purchased at www.fernandoalonsocollection.com
Visitors of the exhibition will journey, via a route in the Centro Arte Canal hall in Plaza Castilla, through the sporting career of Fernando Alonso, starting off with his first overall which was hand sewn by his mother for his first competition at the age of 3, and finishing off with the last trophy that the driver will achieve from here to the end of 2013. Many of the cars that the Spanish driver has raced with throughout his career will be on display; from his first kart to his racing cars from 1999 to 2011, a period in which Fernando raced for Minardi, Renault, McLaren and Ferrari, his current team. Also, amongst cars, overalls, boots, helmets or gloves, visitors will have an opportunity to get to know other interesting aspects of the Spanish driver and the sport he lives in.
Besides, children and youths will have the chance to test their knowledge on road safety thanks to various activities programmed in the same hall. With this initiative, the Fernando Alonso Foundation joins forces with the Canal de Isabel II Management to continue with its work of raising awareness and educating younger people regarding this subject.
