Caterham’s Vitaly Petrov will get to drive a Formula One car on home soil later this month when he takes part in a demonstration run for the team at the World Series by Renault (WSR) event at Volokolamsk, near the Russian capital of Moscow.

"I get a lot of positive emotions every time I visit Russia, and much more so at events where there are fans,” Petrov told Caterham’s website. “I think this is really important as not many of them can visit a Grand Prix and television pictures do not provide the complete atmosphere of Formula One.”

Petrov will also be taking competition winners for hot laps of the new circuit, which is hosting a WSR meeting for the first time on July 14-15, in a Renault Megane RS.

"I hope to give a lot of positive emotions to spectators during the upcoming demo runs in the Moscow region and I invite all motorsport fans to visit the World Series by Renault meeting - there will be a lot of fun!" he added.
