Our history - milestones - goals

2011 - Pit Box Ltd.

The history of FansBRANDS dates back to 2011, one of the golden age of Formula 1, when the whole world was burning with F1 fever. Pit Box Ltd was established at that time. We introduced ourselves at the Monaco Grand Prix. By the end of the year, we thought about the idea of a webshop ...

2012 - our first shop - F1BOX - formula1-box.com

Old riders can still remember us from the Danube Plaza - Budapest. F1BOX has begun to conquer fans both online and offline. But the growing didn't stop there, we needed a bigger warehouse soon ...

2017 - Formula1BRANDS - Vac

We moved to Vac, near the Hungarian Grand Prix - Mogyorod - where we managed to create a real Formula 1 empire.

2019 - new era - FansBRANDS

New webshop, new name and new goals. We have launched our international stores, Facebook and Instagram, VIP Membership and other extras. From now on, there is no change just development. Improvements for all Formula 1 fans to get what they want.

Our goals

What could be the purpose of a Formula 1 company other than conquering the hearts of F1 fans around the world? We will be the biggest F1 store and our brand will be listed alongside NASA, Apple and Amazon. This is our vision and we can only go in that direction. The question is, are you with us?

We already have more stores in different markets.

The FansBRANDS team

Alright, but who are in the background? The team changes from time to time, but rather expands. We work hard every day to do the best we can. Occasionally, work doesn't stop at night or on weekends. Our lives revolve around Formula 1 ...

"Last week, I ordered Hamilton and Vettel gift packages from Formula1Brands official site. I was pleased with the creative website I found to be very attractive; as well as the structure of the ordering options, the kindness of the receptionist on the parcel delivery and other information. I recommend to everyone, depending on your ability, to take advantage of the product ordering option!" - Facebook review
