Mark Webber demonstrates at Turin

Turin – one of Italy’s largest industrial cities and headquarters to Ferrari’s parent company, FIAT – played host to another Red Bull F1 demonstration last weekend.

The event was well-attended by Italian fans, who came and watched Mark Webber and  Jaime Alguersuari demonstrate a Red Bull and Toro Rosso show car on the city’s streets.

Between 1923 and 1982, FIAT’s car assembly factory was housed in the incredible Lingotto building, which was the largest car plant in the world at the time. The amazing five-story building had a production line that rose up through each of the building’s floors where the finished cars would emerge on the building’s roof where a full-spec test track had been built.

You certainly don’t have car assembly plants like this anymore!
