DC Goes to Dover!

Red Bull Racing’s F1 driver David Coulthard will be heading out early to North America prior to the Canadian Grand Prix to pay a visit to Red Bull Racing Team. The weekend before the F1 race in Montreal sees the NASCAR boys racing in Dover, Delaware.

"I’m interested in all sorts of racing, but hardly ever get a chance to see anything other than Formula 1. So when Red Bull came up with the idea of shooting a promo film around their NASCAR operation on the week before the Canadian GP, it seemed like a great opportunity to go and see why this form of racing is so popular in the States."

DC arrives in time for race day, when he will get a chance to sit in BV's race car, and listen in on the team’s pre-race engineering briefing, before watching the "Best Buy 400." We’re not sure if DC will stay to the very end - that’s over twice the distance of the following weekend’s Formula 1 Grand Prix!

Hopefully DC will bring good luck for the 83 team.
They really need to get back to whatever it was they were doing for the first 5 races of the season. They are falling behind in the points but I believe if they can find that magic they had in the beginning of the season they can still get back on track to make it into the chase. A win would be GREAT.

Good job AJ, way to hang in there and move up in the points!

OMG! DC will be at Dover. I'm so jealous. He's my favorite F1 driver. Please take some pictures of him in the 83 car. Hopefully he'll have some fun at Dover and learn a few things!

haha a 4th car, that would be cool though. He's a great driver but I'm sure he feels like he still has unfinished business in F1. DC's been my fav F1 driver after Mika Hakkinen retired.

Oh lord! DV doesn't want to race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He's said it numerous times. Let's just sweep that under the bridge. Plus, how about Red Bull Racing concentrate on the 2 cars they have already, before adding a 4th car. Looks like they've had some great testing speeds at Pocono Raceway. Hopefully they've learned a few things for next weekend. By the way, Curt, you and I sound so much alike. It's kinda scary!
