Red Bull party 'Hollywood-style' in Australia 14 Mar 2007
With characteristic flair, Red Bull celebrated the start of the new season with a flamboyant party on Tuesday night in Melbourne. The event, which took place in a massive film studio located in the Australian citys revived Docklands area, also saw the first screening of Red Bull's pre-season movie.
Thrown in the style of a Hollywood premiere, the party began with the arrival of the film's stars - Red Bull stable mates David Coulthard, Mark Webber, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed - via an Oscars-worthy red carpet, complete with obligatory paparazzi photographers and interviewers.
Once the film - featuring Coulthard and Webber as sophisticated British duellists up against the raw and edgy Toro twins, Speed and Liuzzi - had been screened inside the huge auditorium, the Red Bull drivers joined the other assembled guests, including surf stars Kelly Slater and Layne Beechley, male model Markus Schenkenberg and a variety of Formula One racings glitterati, in hitting the dancefloor.
With top Australian band Wolfmother on hand to provide the event's music, the Austrian drinks companys celebrations lasted well into the night.
