Heikki wows the crowds in Poland

NEWS STORY
04/06/2007

On Sunday afternoon on the streets of Warsaw, the Renault F1 team kicked off its 2007 Roadshow programme, when Heikki Kovalainen produced a spectacular demonstration of the R26 car in front of some 80,000 spectators.

Lining a 2.6 km circuit, running behind the library of Warsaw University, the spectators enjoyed a special demonstration from the young Finn, who once again demonstrated his mastery of the obscure art of 360 doughnuts at the wheel of an F1 car! The circuit crossed the famous Vistula river over the Swietokryski Bridge, where the crowd were able to appreciate the true power of an F1 car as the Renault driver exceeded 240 kph during his demonstration run!

As the day concluded, Heikki Kovalainen summed up the day: "I am really pleased to have been able to come to Warsaw for this roadshow. At Renault, we are always trying to get people to see Formula 1 in a new way and to get them behind the scenes, and the Roadshow is a brilliant way of doing it! I really enjoyed myself today, the people were very friendly, and I hope they had as much fun watching the show as I did behind the wheel!"

Now entering its fifth season, the goals of the Roadshow programme remain the same: to put motorsport enthusiasts, and newcomers, at the heart of the action; and to offer the public the chance to enjoy a motorsport-focused event, with Formula 1 at its centre.

It was mission accomplished in Warsaw, with an estimated crowd of 80,000 people attending the first street demonstration of its kind in Poland!

The 2007 ING Renault F1 Team Roadshow will be back in action on 28 and 29 July in South Africa.
