Red Bull Racing unveils epic road trip video From Castle to Castle!
Red Bull Racing Honda has undertaken some spectacular road trips over the years, but the team’s latest adventure might just top them all. After recently criss-crossing the US, wheel-spinning through the streets of Amsterdam and thundering across the 15 July Martyrs Bridge in Istanbul, Red Bull Racing Honda’s latest adventure, From Castle to Castle, saw the Red Bull Racing RB7 embark on a high-speed tour of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Starting at the world famous Prague Castle and taking in a flat-out blast across the Charles Bridge, the tour saw 13-time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard power through the scenic vineyards of the Moravia region and on to Slovakia’s beautiful capital Bratislava before heading to Poprad-Tatry Airport for the ultimate speed showdown: a flat-out race against 2018 Red Bull Air Race World Champion Martin Šonka.
It was no ordinary battle of speed merchants, though. While the RB7 hit top speed on the short runway in conventional style, Šonka flipped his Extra 300SR plane upside down for a heart-stopping full-throttle inverted flight, just metres above the F1 car and with the drivers almost eyeball to eyeball.
“The great thing about this film is that it’s all real. I really enjoy the fact that I have the opportunity to showcase the Formula 1 car across different countries and here in the Czech Republic and Slovakia we’re on cobbled streets, dusty tracks and some beautiful scenery in the mountains. It’s been incredible and From Castle to Castle has been like a journey of discovery for me, as well as a showcasing what an F1 car can do off-track,” comments former Red Bull Racing driver David Coulthard.
