    Reigning F1 champions Red Bull Racing are bringing their showrun to Mumbai this Sunday, on March 12.

    Thirteen-time F1 race winner David Coulthard will drive the RB7 on the streets of Bandra, and there will also be a bike stunt riding showcase featuring Arunas ‘Aras’ Gibieza – one of the most renowned pro stunt riders in the world. For all those looking to attend the event, we answer your questions:

    What car will David Coulthard drive?

    Coulthard will be driving Sebastian Vettel’s 2011 F1 championship-winning car, the RB7. The car took 18 out of 19 poles and won 12 races in 2011, making it one of the most dominant machines in Formula 1 history.

    The 2.4-litre V8 (producing up to 750hp) is pretty loud! So, make sure you’re carrying earplugs.

    Mumbai Red Bull showrun tickets

    The tickets are divided into four categories. General Access tickets are free of charge, but entry is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Gold Arena tickets (Rs 499) are for standing space in reserved areas. Next up are the Diamond Arena tickets (Rs 2,499), once again for standing space, but they also give access to the Red Bull Energy Station and it’s the shortest arena to get to from the entry point.

    The HSBC Starstruck Lounge tickets (Rs 25,000) cover a two-day package. This includes seating in the grandstand, a meet and greet with Coulthard, live interactions, an invite to the official after party and Red Bull Racing memorabilia.

    However, at the time of writing this story, all tickets are sold out.

    What time does the Mumbai Red Bull showrun start?

    Gates open at 8am and the event starts at 10am. Parking will not be available at the venue, so use public transport.
