An Aston Towing a Caravan? Yes.
In a Top Gear style stunt, Red Bull Formula One drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen pull the ultimate race. Each driving an Aston Martin Vanquish variant, the two F1 drivers pull caravans around the ring. This Aston Martin caravan race takes place at the F1 Austrian Grand Prix track. At 1,760 lbs., the caravans didn’t stop the Aston Martins from a track day. Fortunately, the cars and drivers survived… unfortunately, the caravans did not.
Aston Martin & Red Bull Racing
The Aston Martin caravan race may make one ponder, what is the connection between Aston and Red Bull? Well, first off, Aston Martin is a Red Bull sponsor. This leads to a tendency of working together. Secondly, Red Bull’s involvement in the F1 racing scene has led to an interest in hypercars. Not surprisingly, Aston Martin is working with Red Bull on the stunning Valkyrie. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is a beastly machine that will shake up the hypercar realm. Unfortunately, for Aston, Red Bull vehicles are built with Renault engines.
Daniel Ricciardo & Max Verstappen
The drivers for the Aston Martin caravan race were Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. Ricciardo made his F1 debut in 2011 with Toro Rosso, Red Bull’s entry driver team. With 4 victories and 3rd place last year, this driver can race. During the caravan race, Ricciardo drives an Aston Martin Vanquish Volante with 576 horsepower. Now, everyone knows the Vanquish Volante is ready for the caravan road trip.
On the other hand, Max Verstappen made his start in F1 racing in 2015. Surprisingly, Verstappen was only 17 years old! This makes him the youngest F1 driver in history. This stunt wasn’t completely new as Verstappen. He once took the Red Bull F1 car up an Austrian Alps ski slope… yes, really. Lastly, Verstappen drove an Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante with 603 horsepower in the race.

The Red Bull Racing Aston Martin caravan race is quite the spectacle. Who would’ve thought Aston Martin’s can tug a caravan along the track? Well, if you don’t know, now you know. If you did know, then… good for you. Unfortunately, in recent years, Red Bull is struggling with the hybrid powertrain rules from 2014. Regardless, Red Bull can still put on quite the show, on and off the F1 track. In conclusion, the Aston Martin Vanquish is a powerhouse waiting to show the world what it is capable of… or not?
