Red Bull have confirmed they will take to the streets alongside Renault and Virgin at a promotional event in the Russian city of Sochi later this month. Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Buemi will be in action for the team during the demonstration run on July 17.

Taking place on a temporary circuit built around the Black Sea resort’s city centre, the event has been organised by the Krasnodar region’s motorsport federation with the support of Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister - and head of the Russian race’s organising committee - Dmitry Kozak, and Alexander Tkachev, Governor of the Krasnodar region.

As well as being a rare chance for Russian fans to experience the sights and sounds of Formula One cars being put through their paces, fans attending the demonstration will be wowed by famous participants from other motorsport series, including seven-time Paris-Dakar rally winners the Kamaz Master team.

Sochi is set to host the Formula One calendar’s first Russian round in 2014.
