Mumbai, 30th September, 2009: Mumbai is set to experience the world of Formula One next month, when it hosts Red Bull Speed Link, the first ever Formula One showcase in India. Celebrating the recently opened Bandra-Worli Sea Link and the spirit of Mumbaikars, Red Bull Speed Link will allow Mumbai to witness an energy charge like never before.
The countdown has started and the stage is set for the event of the year – Red Bull Speed Link. Formula One Driver David Coulthard will race a Red Bull Racing F1 Car down the MSRDC Rajiv Gandhi Bandra – Worli Sea Link, at 2pm on October 11th, 2009.
Red Bull Energy Drink, known worldwide for its association with extreme sports and a growing presence in F1, is bringing its impressive F1 racing car to Mumbai. Red Bull has scheduled an impressive five day line up of events – from a technical assembly of the car, to the firing up of its engine, to showcasing the car around town – in order to bring the glitz and glamour of Formula One to the fans, the Red Bull way. The high point of the activities will be when Red Bull Driver David Coulthard speeds across the Bandra – Worli Sea Link at 320KPH – maybe even doing a few heart-stopping 360 degree spins! As David Coulthard accelerates his Red Bull Racing car down the superbly engineered road, of which Mumbai is so proud, Red Bull will set pulses racing – it will be a thrill, not only for the F1 fans in the city, but also for the thousands of energetic Mumbaikars.
Expressing his excitement about his forthcoming visit and F1 drive, David Coulthard said, “I am delighted to be coming to India and I’m looking forward to showing you what the Red Bull Racing Formula One team can do. Red Bull is all about high energy and precision performance. The Sea-Link is going to be challenging and exciting course to drive down on and I’m looking forward to Red Bull Racing giving the city of Mumbai an F1 show like they have never seen before.”
Roads and bridges are arteries of a nation as they obliterate distances and connect people while encouraging economic progress. The Rajiv Gandhi (Bandra-Worli) Sea Link will now join a unique list of international landmarks around the globe that Red Bull Racing have used as platforms to perform innovative F1 Show Runs in order to bring F1 to the fans.
Don’t miss the excitement when Man and Machine tackle it down the arc of Mumbai.
