Race down to Canary Wharf for your chance to take on a former Formula One test driver.

Anaplan , the smart business platform, is hosting an event in front of the tube station on Thursday, June 9 featuring Susie Wolff .

Visitors will have the chance to race the former Williams test driver in a state-of-the-art simulator and try to beat her lap time.

Participants will also be in with a chance of winning an F1 track day at Brands Hatch motor racing circuit.

Susie was one of the first women in the sport. She entered F1 as a development driver for Williams, holding the position for two seasons before being promoted to a test driver for the 2015 season.

At the 2014 British Grand Prix Susie made history by becoming the first woman to take part in a F1 race weekend in 22 years.

The event will run from 9am-5pm and is aimed at exploring how businesses can better harness data using the skills and tactics employed in F1 to gain competitive edge.

The simulator challenge is open to anyone and there will also be an invite-only area where Anaplan’s UK MD, Ian Stone, and Susie will be doing a joint talk.
