Red Bull F1 Showrun set to perform on the streets of Oman

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 Oman will see when the Red Bull Formula 1 Showrun Team visits Oman on Friday April 8, 2016 at Muttrah Corniche. The Constructors’ Championship winning machine will be driven by a Red Bull driver who will perform a full repertoire of donuts, burnouts and speed stretches in front of an expected 20,000 racing 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. The Running Showcars have 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.
The hype for the Red Bull F1 Showrun will begin a few days before the main event, when the team’s car will be displayed and fired up around various locations in Oman at the Omantel headquarters on April 7, 2016.
Red Bull Showruns take place at racing circuits, on city streets, at festivals and exhibitions. Often playing to crowds measured in hundreds of thousands, they give fans the chance to witness the contained ferocity of a Formula 1 car at very close quarters. Formula 1 is a great sport for TV, but there is no substitute for the ear-splitting roar of the engine, the haze of tyre smoke and aroma of burning rubber.
“We are delighted to be part of this exciting event for the first time in the Sultanate. Our brands have speed, thrill and excitement as common principles, and we trust that our customers will get a closer feel of our broadband speed through this event”, said Hamdan Moosa Al Harasi Acting Vice President Corporate Strategy at Omantel.
“We are confident that everyone will mark 8th of April in his calendar and we are looking forward to meet and engage with thousands of spectators expected to take part in this unique show,” Al Harasi added.
The Showrun Team has been to every inhabited continent, from cobbled city streets in Europe to baking deserts in the Americas. It conquered the highest road in the Himalayas, skated on frozen rivers in Canada and drifted across golden Caribbean beaches.
Red Bull Racing is an Austrian team based in Milton Keynes, England. The team’s Formula 1 adventure began in 2005.
This Red Bull F1 Showrun is being held under the umbrella of the Oman Automobile Association and Royal Oman Police with the support of the Ministry of Tourism. The event is being held in partnership with Omantel, Khimji Ramdas, HiFM, Hala FM, Times of Oman and Shabiba.
