Ricciardo to demo F1 car at Perth Speed Fest

Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo to get to drive F1 car in his home town of Perth in December
Daniel Ricciardo will appear at the Perth Speed Fest in his native Australia at the end of the year, it has been confirmed.

Ricciardo will pilot the RB7 at the event, the car that took Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing respectively to the Drivers' and Constructors' titles in 2011.

The Perth Speed Fest will be held at the Kwinana Motorplex, with Ricciardo set to be joined by 1980 Formula 1 World Champion, Alan Jones, as well as MotoGP star, Jack Miller and V8 Supercars pilot, Will Davison. It is slated to take place on December 13 with organisers claiming it will be similar in style to the UK's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

“There's nothing in Australia quite like it,” Perth Speed Fest event producer Emma Stenhouse told communitynews.com.au.

“To see our local hero Daniel Ricciardo in an F1 car racing in Perth, as well as racing and demonstrations of motocross, rallying, bikes, drags and V8s – alongside a huge showcase of historic, classic and majestic cars – will be exciting.”
