Red Bull is bringing the roar of F1 racing to Hong Kong for the very first time, taking over the brand new Lung Wo Road in Central for a demonstration of automotive muscle power. Saturday, June 18th, at 6pm, they will be unleashing a Formula One car driven by the professional driver, Jaime Alguersuari.
Over the last few years, Red Bull has built an impresive track record of events around the city. Last year’s Flugtag event, which had teams of participants crashing home-made planes into the harbor, was perhaps the most successful new event in Hong Kong in over a decade. (For videos of that go here!)
The F1 event, officially titled – Red Bull Dragon Run Hong Kong, will last for over an hour and include trick moves never seen on the racetrack! Also on the menu is stunt driving and a drift show! For fans of car racing this is a rare opportunity to see some high-powered moves up close.
The place to catch the excitement is on the length of Lung Wo Road between IFC and the Wanchai Convention Centre.
The show will take place between 6pm and 7:30.

Central, Hong Kong
It should be noted that the car is not this year’s eventual champion ship car, or last year’s championship car. It’s the Cosworth V10 powered RB1, from the Red Bull Racing’s first season (2005) which had zero podium finishes.
It’s neat to be able to see a real F1 car, but it’s kind of outdated…
