Daniel set to leave tyre marks in streets of Sri Lanka

Daniel Ricciardo is to make his first public appearance as an Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver at the Show Car Run in Sri Lanka next week.

Before joining the team in a few weeks' time to drive alongside newly crowned quadruple World Champion Sebastian Vettel for the 2014 season, Daniel will be heading to Sri Lanka to burn some rubber along the streets of Kandy, Galle and Colombo on December 13 and 14 culminating in the Colombo Night Race on December 15.

Daniel will be driving an RB7 giving Sri Lankan race fans an up-close and personal taste of Formula One.

"I'm excited to go to Sri Lanka"

"I've never been there before and what I do know about the country is through cricket - they've got a pretty good cricket team! I'm looking forward to visiting, to seeing a bit more and learning a bit more about the country. In terms of the events, the more fans we see the better and hopefully they'll be very enthusiastic. I guess some of them have probably never seen a Formula One car before so, seeing the smile on thousands of people's faces will make me feel like I've done my job. That's what we do these events for - to try to show what goes on in our world and let fans get up close to the car. At a live demo there's lots of noise and lots of feeling; you feel the vibrations because the car is so close. There'll be lots of smoke from some burnouts, and hopefully a bit of speed as well so the fans can see what a Formula One car can really do. Hopefully they will have a great time!"

The fans will also have the opportunity to further engage with F1 and the team through the 'Race your way into the Infiniti Red Bull Racing garage' online kartfighter game.
