GPToday.com - Exclusive Pictures As Ricciardo Tears Up Perth's iconic Riverside Drive

GPToday.com was there today (November 26, 2010) at midday (West Australian Standard Time) for the once in a life time chance to see Red Bull reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo take to the streets of his home town, Perth, Western Australia in a Red Bull F1 car to drive along Perth's iconic Riverside Drive.

The poorly kept secret was supposed to be a media only event, with invites sent out just the day before, but word had leaked out and hundreds of F1 fans flocked down to the river to see local boy Daniel hit the streets, causing his planned 3 lap run with a doh-nut conclusion to be ended after just 1 lap for fear of safety to the spectators who had lined Riverside Drive for their glimpse.

Below are the photos GPToday.com's very own and Perth local Wes Metcalf got to snap as he attended the event.

Today's surprise outing of the Red Bull should remind Perth locals that Mark Webber will be taking to the Barbagallo Raceway in the same car this Sunday, November 28, 2010 during the Australian Automobile Club's Festival of Speed where he plans to smash the track record on the short and long versions of the track. GPToday.com will be there and we hope to be able to bring you more exclusive photos of the event.
