This is complete genius and another money spinner.

Say what you like about Levy on the footballing side (and I critisice him heavily), on the commercial side he's a complete genius.

What will it be worth to us for a ££ point of view? Unreal exposure to be linked to a brand like F1

This is amazing, F1 is at it's peak.

Can't wait for the "there used to be a football club over there" from the proper football men

Definitely an interesting partnership and whether i'm putting 2+2 together and coming up with 5, does this potentially lead on to potential new owners and/or investors that mix in both F1 and footballing circles?

We know Jahm Najafi is involved with McLaren Racing and then you have the familiar names of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman associated too.

That aside, the concept sounds pretty damn cool and will look forward to seeing this transpire.

Interesting that when you're happy about something the club has done your first thought is to mock other fans.

The Iranian interested in buying the club, Jahm Najafi, is also McLaren’s vice chairman
Wonder if this has anything to do with it

This is unreal. Can't fathom the engineering involved to build London's longest go-kart track underneath the south stand. The new stadium is unrivalled.

Works both ways... unreal exposure for F1 to be promoted to a global audience watching one of PL's top clubs. It's an excellent partnership.

From the OS article...
Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO, Formula 1, said: "As we continue to grow our sport around the world, partnering with world renowned brands like Tottenham Hotspur allows us to take Formula 1 and motorsport to new and diverse audiences. The karting experience will be a destination and place that families, friends and aspiring drivers from all over the world will want to visit and enjoy, engaging new audiences and offering an accessible entry point to the world of motorsport. Our brands have a shared vision to create life-changing career opportunities, promote diversity and inclusion, such as through the recently announced F1 Academy, and driving environmental sustainability - our innovative partnership will bring all of this to life."

"Well, Tottenham Hotspur may have opened the go-kart track beneath the stadium this week, but on the pitch, the wheels have been falling off somewhat..."

Really good as long as all these things are translated into success on the field. Spurs are doing things ‘differently’ which could be good, but our focus still must be on the team.

However this will definitely have an effect on potential investment.

I guess this is one of the exciting things that Levy was talking about the other week?
It's a pretty cool addition to the stadium, very clever (again) from Levy.

God the man can be frustrating sometimes, he makes it so hard to be cross with him! ??

Isn't under the south stand where the retractable pitch goes? This could get interesting.

They said its the longest track of its kind so maybe it will run around the pitch somehow. It will be interesting to see. We might have to bring the pits onto the sideline. "Here comes Son out of the pits for Tottenham".
