Infiniti drives home Formula 1 excitement with nationwide Red Bull Racing Show Car Tour and exclusive contest

NISSAN CANADA - Infiniti Canada has launched the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Show Car Tour, which will make its way right across Canada over the spring and summer months. Stopping at Infiniti dealerships, this tour gives Canadians the opportunity to see up-close, a display version of the car that Infiniti global brand ambassador Sebastian Vettel took to World Championship status in 2010 – a feat he repeated in 2011.

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing Show Car Tour will make an extended stop in Montréal for the 2012 Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada, visiting each of our local dealers and will be on display at an Infiniti F1 kick-off event on Thursday, June 7th.

"At Infiniti, we craft vehicles that are cutting-edge, powerful and emotional – all to forge a connection between our cars and the adventurous spirit of our drivers," says Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada. "We are delighted to bring Canadian fans of both motorsport and the Infiniti brand a bit closer to that degree of inspired performance by showcasing the Red Bull Racing Show Car in our dealerships. We look forward to celebrating our expanded partnership, and hopefully another winning season with the Red Bull Racing Formula One Team."

The tour also offers a chance to win passes to the Formula 1 race in the United States which takes place November 16-18. Each tour stop event will be equipped with iPads so guests of the dealership can enter to win an all-inclusive trip to the Formula 1 race in Austin, Texas, and be entered for a local draw to win a pair of framed and mounted racing gloves signed by 2011 Formula 1 World Champion, Sebastian Vettel.
