The Racing Point F1 team will conduct a promotion event or “filming day” with its 2020 car at Silverstone’s National circuit on June 17. Lance Stroll will take the helm of the RP20.
Teams are permitted to conduct two promotional days throughout the year with a maximum allowance of 100 kilometres per day and demo tyres provided by Pirelli.
Racing Point has already used one of its two days in Barcelona in February.
Teams such as Mercedes and Ferrari have opted to run 2018 cars, enabling them to test with unlimited mileage.
Some teams have not been able to conduct any testing as they don’t have an older-generation car, while others have used their two promotional days.
Speaking with Motorsport.com, Racing Point team principal Otmar Szafnauer says the team looks forward to the Silverstone running after a strong showing in winter testing.
“We’re definitely looking forward to seeing how competitive it is.
“I think the first few circuits should be OK for us, even Hungary, and Silverstone should be OK too. Then we’re back to Barcelona, and over the winter we looked pretty decent there.
“I think that schedule should bode well for us. So, we’re very much looking forward to seeing how the car performs and what we can do at each one of those circuits to find the sweet spot and optimise the set-up.”
