RED BULL RACING TO APPEAR AT THE GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
Red Bull Racing has confirmed that Tonio Liuzzi and test driver Neel Jani will participate in this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will take place on 24, 25 and 26 June 2005. Sporting Director Christian Horner and 13-time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard will also be attending as guests.
Swiss driver, 21-year-old Neel Jani, a member of the Red Bull Junior team and a current competitor in this year's FIA GP2 Championship, will be present at the prestigious festival on 24 and 25 June. Twenty-three year old Tonio Liuzzi, who made headlines earlier this year when he scored a point in his first ever Grand Prix at Imola, will take over driver duties on Sunday 26 June. Driving aboard the Red Bull Racing F1 car, Tonio and Neel will complete Goodwood's famous 1.1 mile hillclimb numerous times throughout the weekend.
First held in 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed offers fans a unique chance to witness action from the greatest cars and drivers in motorsport today. Renowned as the largest celebration of motorsport, automotive design and car culture in the world, it's become a major fixture in both sporting and social calendars alike.
Attracting a unique range of historic and modern-day cars, the festival offers fans unrestricted access to the paddocks and a rare chance to mingle with their heroes. Last year the event was attended by motorsport legends from days gone by through to the hottest stars of today, and this year's line up is no different.
Tonio, Neel, Christian and David will join a long list of celebrities and leading motorsport figures including Sir Stirling Moss, Ewan McGregor, Damon Hill, Jenson Button, Derek Bell and Fernando Alonso, as well as a host of other famous names and drivers, many of whom will be racing cars, old and new, on the famous hillclimb.
"It's great to be taking part in such a fantastic motoring event," Tonio said. "Goodwood is really well known and when you look at who's going to be there, it's an honour to be joining them - there are some real heroes on the list. I'm also looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the F1 car again and being let loose on the hillclimb. My last event was Nürburgring in Germany last month, so I'll be looking to burn some rubber and give a real performance!"
Christian Horner added, "Red Bull Racing are delighted to support the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This event is a wonderful opportunity for fans and race-goers to have open access to drivers past and present, teams and an exceptional collection of historic and current cars."
