The Scot is set to thunder down the streets of Cape Town in the 2011 F1 World Championship winning Red Bull Racing RB7 (showcar).
Coulthard is synonymous with the glitz and glamour of F1 racing and will add this iconic experience to an illustrious career which includes 13 race wins and 62 podium finishes.
"Formula 1 is a global sport, but with a finite number of countries on the racing calendar, it is down to our show car team to travel farther afield and share the speed and sound of our sport with as many fans as possible," said Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner.
Red Bull Racing has taken the thrill of Formula 1 to cities like Hanoi, Tokyo and Mexico City and returns to South Africa to excite more fans in 2019.
“We received an incredibly warm welcome when we first took our show car to Cape Town back in 2011 and we are delighted to return this year, powering the car down Cape Town’s iconic Grand Parade on June 2nd,” said Horner. “South Africa has a great heritage in F1, stretching back to 1962, and we look forward to seeing fans, old and new, turn out in force to witness the spectacle."
Speaking at the Bahrain GP about the Cape Town showcase Coulthard said: “I’m super excited to be in Cape Town in June for the Red Bull Circuit event."
"I’ll be driving the Formula One car, demonstrating the power, energy and excitement of what Grand Prix can bring," said Coulthard. "I haven’t been to South Africa since we were in Kyalami in 2011, so I’m delighted we’re bringing Formula One back to Cape Town."
The Red Bull Cape Town Circuit on Sunday, 2 June 2019 is shaping to be a scintillating spectacle of speed and precision for the whole family.
