Red Bull junior driver Liam Lawson will have the opportunity to drive a Red Bull F1 car at the infamous Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, Australia.

The New Zealander, who finished third in the Formula 2 Championship in 2022, will complete a demonstration run before the Bathurst 12 Hour event.

The event, not to be confused with the famous Bathurst 1000 which takes place later in the year, is part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, with the event at Bathurst taking place across 3rd - 5th February.

Lawson sampled F1 machinery over the course of 2022, taking part in free practice sessions for Red Bull and AlphaTauri.

He will make the switch from Formula 2 to the Japanese Super Formula championship for 2023, racing for Team Mugen.

Lawson said that he was looking forward to the opportunity to drive a Red Bull F1 car in his home continent.

"I'm super excited! I've never been to Bathurst before so it'll be a first for me,” Lawson said.

"It's a track that I've done a lot in sim racing and iRacing.

"Being from New Zealand, Supercars is a massive series and I've grown up watching it, especially the Bathurst 1000. It's always been one of the biggest events that I've known.

"I'm excited to finally tackle the Mountain and in that car as well - in the RB7 - which I have had the privilege of driving once and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life.

"I'm really excited to have that opportunity again at such a unique place, and to see the fans' reaction to the car because I think it will be quite cool."
