On March 28th, Red Bull Junior Driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will perform a full repertoire of donuts, burnouts and speed stretches in front of an expected 25,000 racing fans that will line the streets near Kuwait Towers.
The Infiniti Red Bull Racing World Champion will drive his F1 car on an 800-meter long urban track stretching from Bneid Al-Gar signal light to the Kuwait Towers. The car which accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds will reach speeds of 250km/h and above.
In addition to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run, Kuwait will get a glimpse of Chris Pfeiffer, a four-time World Stunt Riding Champion and one of the best Stunt Riders in the world who will be pushing the limits with his new tricks.
The hype for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run will begin a few days before the main event, when the team’s car will be displayed and fired up around various locations in Kuwait as well as other activities such as the Red Bull Pitstop Game.
Red Bull Show Runs take place at racing circuits, on city streets, at festivals and exhibitions. Often playing to crowds measured in hundreds of thousands, they give fans the chance to witness the contained ferocity of a Formula One car at very close quarters. Formula One is a great sport for TV, but there’s no substitute for the ear-splitting roar of the engine, the haze of tyre smoke and aroma of burning rubber.
The Show Run Team has been to every inhabited continent, from cobbled city streets in Europe to baking deserts in the Americas. It conquered the highest road in the Himalayas, skated on frozen rivers in Canada and drifted across golden Caribbean beaches.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing is an Austrian team based in Milton Keynes, England. The team’s Formula One adventure began in 2005 and since then the team has won four Constructors’ Championship titles (in 2010 – 2013). The teams’ driver Sebastian Vettel has achieved four Drivers’ World Championships in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Mark your calenders on Friday, March 28th between 2pm and 5pm. This event is sponsored by Infiniti, Pirelli and is held with the cooperation of KMRC.
