  1. Why would you want to buy a Red Bull? It’d break down before you got back from the auction house.

  2. I should have mentioned it’s last year’s RB3, in case that makes a difference. I’m surprised they’re happy to let technology as recent as that go to a private buyer.

  3. Maybe that just goes to show how much they actually thought of the RB3.

    Maybe McLaren will buy it ;)

  5. look it’s a 1:1 scale static model – a bit better than all those red bull cans that seem to litter the countryside about here – just!! – as for the jc film festival brilliant idea – I lived in the borders where he farmed and regularly drove on the same roads he did and the tales locally of him and his friends were great – it would be good if some of this event were to be televised for those of his now older fans could hear and see tales of our hero again.
