RED BULL RACING IN THE USA –
Red Bull Racing’s Show Car Team recently returned from the United States of America where it completed a second All-American Adventure with a Formula One car. Driven by David Coulthard, the Championship-winning RB7 made stops at Liberty State Park, the Lincoln Tunnel and the 2013 Grand Prix of America race course, which winds through both Weehawken and West New York.
After touring Liberty State Park and showcasing the spectacular views of the New York City skyline, as well as the Statue of Liberty, the RB7 moved on to one of the main arteries linking New York and New Jersey – the Lincoln Tunnel. Wrapping up the car’s American vacation, it became the first Formula One car to lay rubber on the Grand Prix of America streets, bringing residents out of their homes to catch the historic sight.
David Coulthard commented: “Bringing together Liberty State Park, the Lincoln Tunnel and the racetrack creates something that’s entertaining for the fans. There is a lot of excitement about Formula One coming to America and we’re going to have not one, but two grands prix in the States. This is a big enough country, a sophisticated audience that gets the technology of Formula One and at the moment, we are delivering good racing.”
This is Red Bull Racing’s second visit to the USA with a Formula One car after its trip to Austin, Texas last year.
