AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda will be at the Nurburgring later this year as part of Red Bull’s show at the historic venue.

Tsunoda will drive the Honda NSX GT3 EVO around the Nordschleife, with the event taking place on September 9th.

Red Bull previously announced that four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel would have a show run in an F1 car at the event, as will Daniel Ricciardo.

“I’ve never driven at the Nürburgring before, so I’m really looking forward to the event in September,” Tsunoda said. 

“I can’t wait to drive around it in my HONDA NSX GT3 Evo, which is an incredible car and a proven race-winning machine at the highest level of GT3 competition.

 “The Nordschleife is a legendary circuit, I just experienced it on the Gran Turismo videogame and already enjoyed it a lot.”

Tsunoda is currently enjoying his third full F1 season and has been commended for his performances with AlphaTauri so far this year.

The Japanese driver will partake in the event in Germany the week after the Italian Grand Prix, AlphaTauri’s home race.

The Nordschleife used to host F1 races in the past before being sidelined due to safety concerns.

It is one of the most famous racing venues in the world, and can be driven by members of the public who can register for a lap by completing an online form.
