Ricciardo to drive Red Bull RB7 in Buenos Aires capital city of Argentina



The F1 season may be over but the showcar team presses on with its tour of South America as Daniel Ricciardo takes the RB7 for a spin around Buenos Aires.

Following a dramatic Brazilian Grand Prix, South American Formula One fans can get just a little bit more live action this weekend as Daniel Ricciardo leaves behind his usual Toro Rosso to take a spin around the streets of Argentina in the title-winning Red Bull Racing RB7.

Ricciardo and the 2011 Constructors’ Championship winning machine will be performing on Saturday at 2pm in the Palermo district, opposite the Spaniards’ Monument. The enormous crowd that’s expected will get to see Dan perform the full array of donuts and burnouts on the specially-constructed short course just a few kilometers away from the Autódromo Oscar Gálvez, scene of so many dramatic Argentine Grands Prix.

“My racing season is finished but it’s always a pleasure to jump back into a racing car, especially one with such fabulous pedigree,” says Daniel. “Of course that doesn’t mean I’ll be treating it gently – I’m planning on making enough noise to be heard clear across the River Plate!”

The showcar has had a hectic year criss-crossing the globe with appearances everywhere from Seoul to Santiago, enjoying record crowd wherever it’s fired up. It’s been four years since the team last visited Argentina, but Daniel will be doing his level best to remind everyone present just what a Formula One car can really do.

If you can’t get to Buenos Aires this weekend, don’t worry, we’ll be posting updates and pictures in all the usual places – and the same can be said of our triple World Champion’s showrun which takes place simultaneously in Graz, Austria this Saturday.
