While Red Bull’s race crews are enjoying some well-deserved down time, its show car squad was out in full force in Switzerland last weekend, at the foot of the Jura Mountains.
Red Bull’s latest show run took place at Grenchen Airport, just north of Bern, and involved two days of adrenaline-fueled, shrieking action with Sebastian Buemi, a championship-winning 2012 RB8 and various machinery from the energy drink’s high octane stable.
Over 36,000 spectators turned up for the event that saw Buemi, on home ground, complete a series of flat-out runs on the airstrip interspersed with sessions of donuts and burnouts, much to the crowd’s delight.
“It’s a special event,” Sébastien said afterwards.
“It’s cool for the fans, but also for the drivers, mainly because you get to do whatever you want with the car on a big airfield like this! It’s an amazing feeling, especially because we’re in Switzerland and I don’t get too many opportunities to drive in front of my home crowd. So, yeah, a very special day.”
