Capetonians descended on Killarney Race Track on Sunday for a taste of true F1 speed and sound. The track was packed to capacity with 30 000 spectators lining the main straight, eager to catch a glimpse of the Red Bull F1 Showcar doing what it was built to do - burn rubber. Local BMX champ and two-wheel extraordinaire Brian Capper opened the show on his KTM stunt bike followed by a drifting demo by Ready D and the D1S Driftsquad. Former Red Bull Air Race pilot Glen Dell then took to the skies in his aerobatic Edge 500. Neel Jani, the young Swiss Red Bull Racing Test Driver who piloted the Red Bull show car on the track had this to say: "It's amazing to be here in Cape Town to run the F1 Showcar today, especially after Sebastian Vettel's victory in the Australian Grand Prix this morning." Not only that, the car also made a pre-trip down to Long Street. video over here:
Red Bull is quite well known for the epic events that they host, the last public one was the Red Bull Nighshift that saw almost 10,000 people rock up on Camps Bay to watch Jordy Smith and friends do some tow-in surfing. This weekend they are bringing in the Red Bull F1 show car that was racing during the last season and it will be putting on a show performance at the Killarney race track. It was supposed to have been held on Beach road in Tableview, but authorities shut them down apparently. Check out the video above. Gives goosebumps! There will also be some other activities like Ready D's drift team, possibly an air race and all the Red Bull you can drink.
