Having a Grand Prix set to take place right in the middle of Las Vegas, it’s a big deal. To celebrate and promote the inaugural Formula 1 Heineken Silver Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 19 begins, Oracle Red Bull Racing brings us a ridiculously-cool preview with its ¡Vamos, Vegas! Campaign. The team got up to a bunch of amazing things using the old favourite, the championship-winning RB7 F1 car that is racking up mileage in the most entertaining of ways. This time round Checo" Pérez, alongside Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner, took the championship-winning RB7 F1 car out for some shenanigans to show that the sport of Formula One and Las Vegas are made to be in cahoots. In the video, we see Pérez whimsically tells Horner the details of his last 24 hours in RB7, including hoofing it down the bustling Las Vegas Strip, racing the car in the Nevada desert to ending up on the roof of a casino. The setup also features Elvis impersonators, Las Vegas showgirls, magician Mat Franco famed for winning America’s Got Talent, the iconic Blue Man Group and even Wayne Newton, A.K.A Mr Las Vegas. The desert action meant the RB7 car needed some competition, and that came from Las Vegas native and 6-time off-road champion Bryce Menzies and his Red Bull trophy truck.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off what the crazy crew from Oracle Red Bull Racing have been up to while creating content to promote the upcoming Las Vegas Grand Prix coming up in November. All of this outrageousness just confirms that Red Bull and the Oracle racing team must be absolutely awesome to work for. On that note, just a lil'; FYI, we have a South African friend who's just joined the team as an engineer, and now he's made us more than a little jealous: F1 Car on Las Vegas Roof?! | ¡Vamos, Vegas! | Oracle Red Bull Racing
