On the 12th of November, prepare for the thrill every motorsport fan dreams of on the Saudi Arabian sea view showcase. The 2012 Red Bull RB8 will be driven by ex-F1 driver Patrick Friesacher and the 1979 Williams FW07/01 will have Dario Franchitti taking you through the sensory journey of this free event for all that are interested.

Red Bull is also hosting riders Mike Jensen and Shadi Al Dhaheri for a motorcycle stunt show, and Red Bull legendary paragliding athletes Horacio Llorens and Rafael Goberna will be doing a groundbreaking parachute landing for all the onlookers.
