Mexico: Drive Through Folklore

Get up to speed with everything you need to know about the 2020 Mexico City Grand Prix and Day of the Dead festivities happening this November in Mexico.

Between the 1st and 2nd November, Mexico is in full bloom. The 4.304-kilometre track at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez is buzzing with F1 enthusiasts from all over the world who cheer on their favourite driver over 71 laps on Sunday November 1st.


Meanwhile, in towns and cities, Day of the Dead festivities unfold in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy. Sure, the theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for family members who are no longer with us. Revelers celebrate with funky makeup and costumes, hold parades and parties, sing and dance, and make offerings to lost loved ones. The symbolic importance of Día de los Muertos was also recognised by UNESCO and added the holiday to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008.

Today Mexicans from all religious and ethnic backgrounds celebrate Día de los Muertos, but at its core, the holiday is a reaffirmation of indigenous life.

Our partners IM Promociones are offering you the chance of a lifetime to organise a programme combining the two events. This is your year to visit Mexico and drive through folklore with GDA & IM Promociones!
