More than 15,000 spectators gathered on Dublin’s North Wall Quay for the Red Bull Showrun today. Former Formula One Driver David Coulthard teamed up with Red Bull Athletes, Drifter Conor Shanahan and Motorcycle Stunt Rider Mike Jensen for the epic motorsports spectacle.
Fans were treated to an epic show as the Oracle Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car, alongside Shanahans GT86 and Jensen on his Suzuki GS500 Motorcycle performed a full repertoire of donuts, burnouts and speed stretches against a backdrop of Dublin’s River Liffey.
Coulthard’s RB8 car is a composite monocoque structure, designed and built in-house with a V8 engine. It won the Driver and Constructors World Championship in 2012 and accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds, reaching speeds of more than 250km/h on an open track.
