Filling the F1 Void: Revving up your week

The drivers are busy getting fit, the Team is busy getting the RB13 fit, and us? Well, we're busy cooking up a season full of awesome stuff for you to get your teeth into in 2017. But that doesn't mean we've forgotten that it's not time for Melbourne yet (or even testing). We've got a heap of time to fill until then and although the F1 world is dishing up plenty of pre-season nuggets already, it's just not quite enough for the most voracious of F1 fans. Here are a few ways to turn your adrenaline amp up to 11 this week.

Red Bull Air Race 2017: Abu Dhabi, 10th-11th February
Back for another year of high speed, low altitude action, the world's fastest motorsports series kicks off the season in Abu Dhabi with the 75th Red Bull Air Race. Defending world champion Matthias Dolderer is up against fierce competition from his fellow pilots, all of whom will face the challenge of tight turns, warm temperatures and shifting winds above the waters of the Arabian Gulf. Watch qualifying on Friday, followed by the rounds and final event on Saturday. Get the lowdown on this year's challengers here. Watch it on Red Bull TV here

WRC 2017: Rally Sweden, 10th-12th February
Another slice of rally action lands this weekend as the second stage of the World Rally Championship arrives in Sweden. An altogether more scenic stop on the calendar, the event promises plenty of ice and snow amidst the wintery Scandinavian forests. If studded tyres and temperatures of -25°c aren't enough of a challenge, the drivers must also continue to contend with this year's regulation changes. Catch up with the action on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Get up to speed with the latest news here. Watch it on Red Bull TV here.

Red Bull Station Riots 2017: Germany, 10th-12th February
If you're in Germany, this one's for you! It's time for the ultimate snowboarding and party weekend at the Snowpark Nesselwang in Germany. This awesome festival returns for a second time, offering local snowboarders the chance to rock a unique street set-up. The highlight of the weekend is the Best Line Contest, in which locals battle pros to win the freestyle crown, which is no easy feat – riders first must prove their skills at the qualifier jam session. The event also promises cool beats and a BBQ session to top things off. Get all the details here

We'll catch you next week with some more adrenaline appetisers but in the meantime, you can drop by our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram channels at any time and hang out with us as we gear up for the new season.
