A plethora of Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso stars – of course! – were on-hand to witness the reopening of the ‘Red Bull Ring’, the circuit formerly known as the A1 Ring that was bought by Red Bull’s owner Dietrich Mateschitz.
Guests – including Niki Lauda and Gerhard Berger – were treated to a host of activities, including F1 and Formula 3000 demonstration runs from Mark Webber and Sebastien Buemi, and even a Red Bull Air Race plane using the main straight as runway!
