This weekend Cape Town carheads and fans of the energy drink that gives you wings, will be treated to a bit of F1 (yes fingers are crossed for getting that bid in for F1 next year).The Red Bull Racing F1 Showcar event has moved to Killarney Race Track to better accommodate the expected crowd who will be attendance to see the true potential of the Formula One car at the home of the Western Province Motor Club.
On 1 January 1960, the Cape Grand Prix was held at Killarney. This was the first time the track and the Western Cape had a taste of Formula One. Now, for the first time in over 50 years, Red Bull Racing brings F1 back to Killarney. Siiick!
Driving the Formula One car this weekend in Cape Town on Sunday 27 March is Swiss native, Neel Jani, who started his racing career at the age of 12 and has since joined Red Bull Racing as an F1 test driver assisting Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber to qualify P1 and P2 at the Melbourne GP in 2010. So basically he’s has a tough time buying Christmas every year 😉
Join the Red Bull Racing Formula One Team on the 27th March 2011 for their first time in Cape Town as they take to the track for a day of F1 speed and sound.
