SEVEN RENAULT TRUCKS T FOR RED BULL

Seven Renault Trucks T 520 High play their part in premier motor racing in Europe for Red Bull

Seven Renault Trucks T 520 High play their part in premier motor racing in Europe for Red Bull. They are there to transport the Red Bull Tree House from one Formula 1 Grand Prix to another.

Normally, there would be nothing unusual about seven articulated lorries carrying seven containers across Europe. Unless the seven containers are 'parts' of the Red Bull Tree House, an extended pit lane for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team. This is also true for the Formula 1 drivers and their cars travelling across Europe from one race weekend to the next. The Tree House is a mobile workshop and office for supporting the Red Bull team at each European race weekend. If you look in the four containers for the mobile workshop, you will see, not only conventional tools such as a lathe and drill press, but also a 3D printer for printing the required parts. During a race, it is important to react quickly. So the Tree House is a logical extension to the Red Bull Box. The remaining three containers are used as a mobile office to accommodate 35 people.

The fleet is made up of Renault Trucks alone.

The seven new Renault Trucks T 520 High represent a continuation of the long-standing relationship between Red Bull and Renault Trucks. As far as configuration goes, the seven Renault Trucks T 520 High are the last word in equipment, featuring the latest top engine, the Euro 6 version 13-liter 520 hp, and High Sleeper Cab with an interior height of 2.05 meters. The automatic Optidriver gearbox makes changing gear easy for the Red Bull drivers. And the Optibrake+ and Voith Retarder are also very convenient when slowing down.
