The Barcelona-based Superleague Formula organizers today announced a full program of fan activities aimed at providing a large range of family entertainment.

The Superleague Formula off-track entertainment will focus on a Central Stage area which will act as the event “epicenter” for of all entertainment including: DJs, break-dancers, freestyle football displays, fashion shows, prize-giving, driver autograph sessions, interviews and prize draws. Fans will also be able to take the opportunity to have their photograph taken with team show cars.

Other entertainment will include:

Entertainers, cheerleaders, face-painters etc will also provide added entertainment for young fans.

"Our plan from the start was to establish Superleague Formula as more than just a motor race - we want to provide an extensive array of entertainment options for the entire family," Superleague Formula President and CEO, Alex Andreu said.

"We think we have a great line up of entertainment - both on the ground and in the skies above.

"Superleague Formula will bring a host of new fans to the track who have never been to a motorsport event before and our goal is to be able to provide them with an excellent experience and have them return again the following year."
