Daniel Ricciardo takes Red Bull Racing RB7 to Sri Lanka streets

Daniel’s Sri lanka trip was a great media opportunity, while he took time taking in the many sights and sounds of the island nation. Elephants, Gangarama temple, playing cricket, and fishing with locals were part of his tourist agenda. The young driver was available for photo ops, signed autographs, met with fans, and gave it a go with some night racing, albeit by himself.

With driving filling up most of his schedule, Daniel went in to practice for the main live demo event and then the next day a full programme of 3 runs on the city streets in support of the Colombo Night Race festival with which he ended the live demo team’s schedule for 2013.

“The last few days have been a amazing experience,” Daniel Ricciardo said afterwards. He added, “Driving the showcar always takes you to new and exotic places but this has been just stunning. The crowd was great and that really gets the pulse-rate up. Hopefully we gave them a demo to remember – I’m sure we did.”
