Former F1 racer David Coulthard is to take part in a demonstration event with Red Bull Racing this weekend in Luxembourg.

The Scot will drive an RB7 during the Roadshow Luxembourg event in the town of Esch-Belval, which has been organised by local motorsports photographer Jerry Andre to support the Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner; a foundation that supports children suffering from cancer.

A limited number of tickets are still available at EUR18 each, with fans also able to get up close and personal to machinery from the WRC, drifting and a range of junior single-seaters as they demonstrate on a specially constructed 2.3km course.

News of Coulthard's appearance in the Red Bull car comes on the back of the announcement that he is to become an ambassador for Cooper Tires and its ultra-high performance range.

In the new role, Coulthard will offer technical advice, insight and feedback to Cooper's product development team, as well as representing the manufacturer at key events.

"By pairing with Cooper Tires as ambassador of its UHP range, there's a sense I've returned to a company which was a big part of my pre-Formula 1 career. I cut my teeth in F3 and F3000 on Avon Tyres, which is a Cooper Tires brand - and Cooper is the current supplier to the British F3 Series.

"I'll be supporting the brand's performance tyre development programmes but it wasn't just its motorsport heritage and the performance focus of the UHP range which attracted me, its safety credentials and track record of producing high quality products over several decades made all the difference for me."
