F1 cars don’t make milk runs in the middle of the afternoon. Rarely do these ultra-expensive, ultra-fast racers touch a normal road besides at races like the Monaco Grand Prix. But on this one special occasion, BMW driver Robert Kubica, put a F1 car in people’s rear view mirrors.
But don’t think that this was a spontaneous drive. The residents of Ravenna, a city in Northern Italy, invited Robert Kubica to accept the Lorenzo Baldini award for his extraordinary performances. Kubica drove his car along a spectator filled fifteen-mile course. BMW engineers raised his car to conquer the bumpy roadways, and the road was cleared of traffic with the aid of an official car convoy. Even with 800 hp under his belt, Kubica drove well within the speed limits, showing how responsible a driver he is.
