About us – What we do

Leisure & Sports Accommodation (LSA)

LSA has built itself into the UK’s leading specialist provider of travel & hospitality services for Formula One professionals and fans.

Driven by a passion for delivering clients the highest possible level of service, we deliver accommodation, race tickets and hospitality packages to motorsport teams, media, sponsors and guests through the Formula One Grand Prix season.  In addition, we also create bespoke events and tailored packages for MotoGP, Formula E and Goodwood.

Our small, multilingual, friendly team provides a personal and professional service, using their unrivalled knowledge and experience of Formula One to find travel and hospitality packages that cater for every budget.

LSA is the go-to travel provider for photographic agencies, the media and sponsors. Alongside this, we also utilise our long-standing expertise in Formula One to work below-the-line assisting larger agencies.

LSA is run by highly experienced travel consultants Lauren Barker & Katie O’Connor-Mitchell, who both share a lifelong passion for motorsport.
