Formula One car comes to Kettering

Lucky employees at a Kettering firm got the chance to see a Formula One car up close and personal yesterday, as Sebastian Vettel’s car rolled into town.

The team Red Bull car was at Snap-On Tools, on Telford Way Industrial Estate, Kettering, throughout the day and staff members took the chance to take photographs with the powerful motor.

Max Christmas, product and marketing manager at Snap-On Tools, said the company is an official sponsor of Infiniti Red Bull Racing because they supply a variety of tools to the team - that is why the car was at the company.

Mr Christmas added that the car ‘shell’ was Sebastian Vettel’s race car a couple of years and has since been touring, since its’ retirement.

The company were running an employee competition throughout the day, asking people to guess the number of pole positions Red Bull Racing has ever had. The six winners, who guess closest to the amount, will get the chance to tour around Red Bull’s facilities.
