Coulthard goes to Dover, USA

COULTHARD VISITS NASCAR……but only for the day!

Red  Bull  Racing's  David  Coulthard  will  be  heading  out  early  to  North  America prior to the Canadian Grand Prix to pay a visit to Red Bull's NASCAR team. The weekend before the F1 race in Montreal sees the NASCAR boys racing at Dover in Delaware, on a track known as the Monster Mile.

David will be a guest of the NASCAR Red Bull Racing Team, which is now in its second year of competition, racing Toyota Camrys, driven by Brian Vickers and AJ Allmendinger.

"I'm interested in all sorts of racing, but hardly ever get a chance to see anything other  than  Formula  1.  So  when  Red  Bull  came  up  with  the  idea  of  shooting  a promo  film  around  their  NASCAR  operation  on  the  week  before  the  Canadian GP, it seemed like a great opportunity to go and see why this form of racing is so popular in the States."

DC arrives in time for race day, Sunday 1st June, when he will get a chance to sit in the race car as well as sitting in on the team's pre-race engineering briefing, before watching the "Best Buy 400" so called  because it consists of 400, yes you read that right, 400 laps of the one mile track. We're not sure if DC will stay to the very  end!  That's  over  twice  the  distance  of  the  following  weekend's  Formula  1 Grand Prix.
