F1 Teams Swap Tarmac For Leukaemia & Lymphoma Triathlon

Written By:

Blenheim Palace will play host to an off-track battle of the fittest, as relay teams from three Formula One outfits go head-to-head at the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Blenheim Palace Triathlon on 13 to 14th June 2015.

With fitness being of vital importance for both drivers and support crew, triathlon offers great cardiovascular training for F1, as championed by seasoned triathlete and previous Blenheim Palace Triathlon entrant, Jenson Button.

Falling on an off-weekend in the Formula One season the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Blenheim Palace Triathlon provides the perfect opportunity to maintain track fitness, with Mercedes AMG Petronas, Red Bull and Force India all entering relay teams on Sunday 14th June. From engineers to fabricators, trimmers to accountants, each F1 team will have three relay teams representing them on race day.
