Caterham to perform Dublin street demo
19 April 2012 – Caterham will be wowing Irish Formula 1 fans as it takes to the streets of Dublin in June. The demonstration will be part of the Bavaria City Racing event, which has relocated from Rotterdam for 2012.
The five-hour spectacle will also include McLaren, the BTCC’s Motorbase squad, the Aprilia Superbike team and a number of GP2 representatives. Caterham is yet to confirm which driver will be in action.
A tempory course will be set up from the Convention Centre to O’Connell Bridge, passing through Customers House Quay, Butt Bridge, chicanes at D’Olier Street and high-speed drive-bys at College Green and the Central Bank on Dame Street.
The event will take place on Sunday 3 June, with no less than 150,000 spectators set to attend. F1 has been deprived of an Irish representative on the grid since Eddie Irvine’s career ended after a tough season with Jaguar ten years ago. Incidentally, Rotterdam will still be running a street demonstration (minus the Bavaria branding) on Sunday 26 August, with Nico Rosberg starring for Mercedes.
