Monteiro to join Rotterdam show
2 August 2006 – Midland has confirmed that Tiago Monteiro will be joining his Dutch teammate, Christijan Albers, and the rest of the MF1 Racing team at the second-annual Bavaria City Racing road show in Rotterdam, Holland, on Sunday, August 20, 2006.
The participation of the popular Portuguese driver means that MF1 Racing will be the first Formula 1 team to have both of its race drivers in attendance for this event, which is expected to draw in excess of 300,000 spectators.
"It's a great pleasure to be invited to such a gigantic event in Rotterdam," said Tiago Monteiro. "From what I've seen and heard, it's a huge party for the fans, and that's what motorsport should be about. I hope everyone will get a thrill out of seeing Christijan and I blast through the streets in the Midland M16. As for us drivers, it will be nice change of pace as we get to enjoy a bit of F1 without all the stress and pressure of actually competing!"
