Red Bull spreads its wings to raise money for charity
May 2, 2013, 10:07 AM

The lack of on-track testing in modern Formula 1 means teams rely more heavily on one particular tool – their simulator.

The lack of on-track testing in modern Formula 1 means teams rely more heavily on one particular tool – their simulator.

It’s essentially a super-advanced computer game and a hydraulically controlled F1 chassis which replicates the experience of driving on-track.

And thanks to Red Bull, you could be one of the few people in the world to have the opportunity to have a session in one with guidance from a team expert.

It’s part of an initiative to support the reigning world champion’s charity Wings for Life, which funds worldwide research into spinal injury.

The charity wants companies and groups to form fundraising teams who will compete against each other between July and October to raise money, with the most successful teams winning prizes.

To begin, teams who have raised at least £1,000 will be invited to a launch evening where Red Bull team boss Christian Horner will offer some wise words on how to form a winning team.

Midway through the challenge, the three teams who have collected the most money will have a Red Bull static car delivered to their office for display.

At the end of the four-month period, the winning team will get to sit in Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s seat in the simulator as well as receive a piece of Red Bull memorabilia which has been framed, worn and signed.

Even if you miss out on the top prize, every team which raises at least £15,000 for Wings for Life will be given four places on a behind the scenes tour of the Red Bull factory.

To find out more or to sign up, visit the Wings for Life website.
