Red Bull gears up for home run

9 December 2011


Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will take to the streets of Milton Keynes this Saturday in Red Bull Racing F1 cars to celebrate the team's 2011 double World Championship success, as announced last month.

Taking place on Midsummer Boulevard from 1230hrs until 1500hrs, the show run will take place just five miles from the team's factory, which is where the championship winning RB7 was designed and built.

Joining Vettel and Webber on the day will be team principal Christian Horner, chief technical officer Adrian Newey, former F1 driver David Coulthard, Red Bull stunt rider Chris Pfeiffer and BBC presenter Jake Humphrey.

“It's great news to be able to go ahead with this event in Milton Keynes with both drivers and two cars,” Horner said last month. “It's been home for our factory since Red Bull entered Formula One in 2005 and we get excellent support from the city; it will be fantastic to be able to put on a show and give something back.

"I think most of the staff will be attending with their families, which I'm extremely pleased about. I'd like to thank the council for all their efforts and I'm looking forward to the event – it will be the first time we'll have two cars and both of our drivers at a running show car event, so it will be a really great way to finish the year."
