ProLights LED and discharge fixtures were central to the event lighting schemes at this year’s glamorous British Racing Drivers’ Club’s (BRDC) British Grand Prix Party at Silverstone racing circuit.

Staged within the grounds of the BRDC Farm as part of the Formula 1® Rolex British Grand Prix weekend, the legendary occasion attracts high-profile members and motorsport personalities.

A regular at the BRDC Party over the past few years, ProLights fixtures were utilised throughout the BRDC Farm grounds, as well as lighting areas inside the marquee.

Various models from ProLights’ complete IP65 family were selected to extend the ambience of the event into the outdoor spaces. Solar LED wash lights illuminated the exterior of the marquee and the Farmhouse within the grounds, as well as the surrounding trees and garden, complemented by Panorama AirBeam IP ‘searchlight’ and StudioCOB Plus Full Colour PAR effects lighting.

ProLights’ Eclipse Fresnel and Profile, Luma700, Razor 440, plus Stark and Diamond ranges of LED fixtures were used to create a lively and vibrant atmosphere at night inside the marquee, as well as adding to the ambience during the day. The Luma 700s projected custom ‘BRDC’ gobo branding during the day, with the Razor 440s and Stark 1000s coming to life with the floor package for the live band and a DJ.

A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET), a leading distributor of professional equipment and a Patron of the BRDC, supplied the ProLights fixtures and overall event lighting to showcase its latest portfolio.

Andy Walne Smith, production manager for the event, commented: “With it being very dusty outside and historically there’s always a possibility of inclement weather at the event, ProLights’ full range of IP65 fixtures allowed for the creation of a dynamic, uncompromised lighting scheme outdoors as well as inside. The Panorama AirBeam IPs were absolutely hassle-free to set up, with no need for domes or accessories, and the mostly LED-based rig really helped with the limited power available onsite.”
