April 8, 2016 – It’s not every day you get to see a Formula 1 car, never mind a World Championship winning one. That is exactly what the people of Lebanon will see when the Red Bull Formula 1 Showrun visits the country on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at Beirut Waterfront.
The Constructors’ Championship winning machine will be driven by current Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Carlos Sainz Jr. who will perform a full repertoire of donuts, burnouts and speed stretches in front of thousands of motorsport fans that will line the streets.
The car, which accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds, will reach speeds of 250km/h and above on Beirut’s streets. The Showrun has visited the four corners of the world, visiting locations that would not normally host a Formula 1 event and in many instances giving people their first taste of Formula 1 in the flesh.
