Australia to Abu Dhabi, Italy to Singapore, Russia to Japan – outside of the Olympic Games and the Soccer World Cup, Formula One is the most watched sport in the world. F1 is broadcast in the United States by NBC Sports and its commentary team Leigh Diffey, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett; the team that can take you behind the scenes of the upscale race weekends. Join Diffey, Matchett and Hobbs at The Ridgefield Playhouse as they come right off of the heels of the last F1 weekend for a multimedia event, including behind the scenes footage, that will review the 2017 season and take you into the world of F1 with insight, humor and some rare stories!
Celebrate the best team in motorsport for one last time -Join us as we toast the three kick-ass commentators that have brought us F1 on NBC for the past five years! Every ticketholder gets a free glass of champagne at the end of the event to say “cheers” to our mates as they move on to their next venture!

The Wilson Children’s Fund was created in honor of the late racecar driver Justin Wilson, who died in a crash at the Pocono IndyCar race on Aug. 24, 2015,WilsonChildrensFund.com was established with the support of his wife Julia to help fill the massive void he left behind. WilsonChildrensFund.com serves one specific purpose: to guarantee the long-term financial needs of their daughters, Jane and Jess. The world knew Justin as a champion driver, but within the racing community, he was known as a dedicated husband and father who readily bore the responsibility of caring for his wife and daughters. With that comforting pillar removed from their lives, WilsonChildrensFund.com stands as a fast and simple method to ensure his little girls are taken care of for years to come.
