Oracle Red Bull Racing will be present at the Bathurst 12-Hour in February to take their 2011 title-winning Formula 1 car to the circuit.
The RB7 is the same car Sebastian Vettel won his second World Championship in with Australian Mark Webber as his teammate. It’s considered one of the most dominant F1 machines of all time, winning 12 of 19 races and claiming 18 of 19 pole positions that year.
Webber and Vettel also claimed three 1-2 finishes in the car.
Not only will Red Bull’s display include on-track activity, the team and cars will be accessible to the public via their location in the Bathurst 12 Hour paddock, which is free to access for all ticket holders at the event.
The display gives Australian motorsport fans something extra to look forward to at the already-stacked Bathurst 12-Hour.
Shane Rudzis, the Event Director of the Bathurst 12-Hour, is excited for the display.
“Oracle Red Bull Racing are the current Formula 1 World Champions: Just to have them at the event is a privilege, but to know that the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car will be lapping Mount Panorama will be something else,” he says.
“This will be a spectacle like nothing we’ve seen at the 12 Hour before and takes the event to an entirely new level.
“This will be the best opportunity in 2023 for Australian F1 fans to get up close and personal with F1 machinery and an even rarer opportunity to see a Formula 1 car lap Mount Panorama.”
Further details regarding the on-track schedule and off-track activation surrounding the Red Bull Formula 1 team’s presence will also be announced early in 2023.
The driver to pilot the Oracle Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Car will be announced in the new year.
