    For anyone that's interested, here's some cool pictures of the Red Bull RB6 (early 2010 design) from the Milton Keynes shopping centre

    No paddock girls, but a really really good event!
    Over 60,000 people turned up!
     
  6. Hey, I went to Milton Keynes on saturday, home of the Redbull team, for a free event called the Redbull Homerun. There were thousands of people there and they'd closed off some roads so that David Coulthard, Vettel and Webber could charge up and down and do doughnuts. Was awesome, the sound of the cars was amazing and the smell of burning rubber filled the air.

    Here's my two youtube clips. The first has better sound quality recorded with my Zoom Q3HD that has good stereo mics (although it clips a bit as I set the mics on high gain which was a mistake). Looks much better with 60fps, and the link for that is on the vid if you're interested. The second vid here is recorded with my phone. Enjoy.:)

    Is this the equivalent of the FA cup winners open top bus tour of the town?

    Yeh pretty much, except the buses don't do donuts in the street :)

    I was there on Saturday too.
     
  10. Hey Chris, we got merged. :p I'd have posted in your thread but I didn't see it (I was looking in the wrong forum). Nice pics, I didn't know they'd displayed a car in the shopping centre before saturday. Anyway, great event wasn't it!

    It was an awesome event. Very cold though.
    I got interviewed by Sky Sports in the paddock in the morning, but they never showed it on TV :(
