Red Bull’s Racing cars will be speeding through the Mother City this year on June 2 2019, with renowned drivers such as David Coulthard behind the wheels.

After rumours circulating for weeks, it has finally been confirmed that Coulthard, the legend himself, will drive Red Bull’s car for the 2019 Red Bull Cape Town Circuit event.

Coulthard is a prime example of F1 glamour and prestige and his presence on the road will add an air of international flair to the long-awaited event.

Overall, the iconic driver has raked in 13 race wins and 62 podium finishes, making him a force to be reckoned with.

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner told Wheels24, “Formula One is a global sport, but with a finite number of countries on the racing calendar, it is down to our show car team to travel farther afield and share the speed and sound of our sport with as many fans as possible.”

Red Bull Racing has brought the adrenaline-fuelled thrills of F1 racing to cities around the wold, from Hanoi and Tokyo to Mexico City, and now Cape Town.

Horner said, “We received an incredibly-warm welcome when we first took our show car to Cape Town back in 2011 and we are delighted to return this year, powering the car down Cape Town’s iconic Grand Parade on June 2nd. South Africa has a great heritage in F1, stretching back to 1962, and we look forward to seeing fans, old and new, turn out in force to witness the spectacle.”

Locals should note the date and be sure to grab themselves a front-row seat, as the show is sure to be a stunner.
