Red Bull Racing Honda F1 Show Car Comes to Town
F1 fans rejoice! Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, the exclusive distributor of Honda vehicles in the UAE, will be taking the RB16B Red Bull Racing Honda F1 show car on an exciting roadshow touring across the Emirates. Designed for the 2021 Formula One season, fans in the UAE can get up close and personal, at different locations, with the car.
Honda has long enjoyed a rich racing heritage and association with Red Bull Racing, having provided engines to the Red Bull family and Scuderia AlphaTauri teams since 2019, securing nine race victories to date. The roadshow commences this weekend, Thursday 17th June at Dubai Festival City Mall, known for its exceptional shopping experiences. Honda UAE will be asking fans to show off their podium winner look next to the Red Bull Racing Honda F1 show car for a chance to win a stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai or Abu Dhabi as well as additional spot prizes such as Red Bull Racing Honda merchandise. Winners will be announced by 20th July 2021.
The roadshow’s first pit-stop after Dubai Festival City Mall will be the Honda showroom in Umm Al Nar, Abu Dhabi before moving on to YAS Mall. The car will also be making a special appearance at the opening event of the all new Honda facility in Al Ain, culminating at the Honda showroom in Festival City, Dubai.
