The Renault F1 team is to attend the Bavaria City Racing event in Rotterdam on 19 August, with Heikki Kovalainen and Nelson Piquet taking part in demonstration runs in the centre of Rotterdam.

The two drivers will take to the streets in the championship winning R26 to allow the Dutch fans to get up close and personal to Formula 1 machinery in what has become of the biggest public events in Holland in recent years.

"I am delighted to be going to Rotterdam, to bring Formula 1 to an audience of 400,000 people," Kovalainen enthused. "At the ING Renault F1 Team, we are always trying to get people to see Formula One in a new light and to get them behind the scenes, and this event is a brilliant way of doing it!

"I am looking forward to seeing the special city-centre circuit, and I hope the Dutch audience has as much fun watching the show as I will behind the wheel!"
