A DAD saw drivers taken to the track for real after winning a computer game challenge.
Andy Young, from Seaham, scooped a day at Silverstone earlier this month after he gained the fastest lap on an F1 simulator.
It visited Byron Place shopping centre in the town to mark Father’s Day last month, with dads invited to pit their driving skills against each other during the Saturday session.
Andy, who travelled to the track for the British Grand Prix, enjoyed his day, despite the heavy rain and mud.
He said: “The prize was great supplied by Byron Place, but the event was definitely an experience due to the weather.”
