Just like any vacation, Red Bull Racing had plenty of fun last month when it did a little sightseeing in New York and New Jersey. First, the team stopped and got a photo op with the New York skyline while playing The Star-Spangled Banner and then it took to the streets of Jersey driving along the proposed route of the 2014 Grand Prix of America (you know, if it actually happens). Every good trip must come to an end though, so the team heads to the Lincoln Tunnel for the final video of Red Bull's trip which is just as fun to watch as it is to listen to.
Red Bull Racing teased us with this video last month, but now we finally get to see its RB7 Formula One racer tearing through the Lincoln Tunnel that connects New Jersey and New York. The 2.4 kilometre (1.5-mile) long tubes usually see daily traffic of well over 100,000 vehicles, and we're sure there's never been such a powerful car (or such little traffic) commuting underneath the Hudson River. The video shows the car blasting through the closed tunnel, but the best part of the video is that the car's engine provides the only soundtrack.
Check out the video below to see – and hear – what it's like to let a Formula One car let loose in the storied two-lane tunnel.
