RED Bull Racing have confirmed that their two drivers will appear in Milton Keynes next month to celebrate their double championship winning season.

F1 Drivers’ champion Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will be part of the show in the city on Saturday, December 10, performing demonstration runs up and down Midsummer Boulevard in CMK.

It will be the first time Red Bull have performed in their home town, and team principal Christian Horner is looking forward to giving something back to the local motor racing fans who have stuck by them since they formed and set up shop in Tilbrook in 2005.

He said: “It’s great news to be able to go ahead with this event in Milton Keynes, with both drivers and two cars.

“It’s been home for our factory since Red Bull entered Formula One in 2005 and we get excellent support from the city. It will be fantastic to be able to put on a show and give something back.

“I think most of the staff will be attending with their families, which I’m extremely pleased about. I’d like to thank the council for all their efforts and I’m looking forward to the event – it will be the first time we’ll have two cars and both of our drivers at a running show car event, so it will be a great way to finish the year.”

Milton Keynes Council leader Andrew Geary said the team’s success has given a huge boost to Milton Keynes over the past couple of years.

He said: “The city benefits enormously from having Red Bull based here. It shines a massive spotlight on the city, bringing in tourism, investment and providing hundreds of jobs locally, ensuring that MK is firmly on the map. It’s fantastic that both drivers are confirmed for the event.”
