I need to go out town this Friday so no chance to see it how to run not exceeding 120km/hr or risk a ticket from our HK Police...

It was on display somewhere yesterday...couldn't go because I had an exam... definitely going on Saturday though

are you allowed to go on the fast lane with a 'P' plate? might be a problem when I get a driving license...

should be no problem, "fast lane" is not always the fastest lane...

Appparently tomorrow it will be outside a 7-11 in Causeway Bay, I think I'll go so I can get some stationary pics. The event thing isn't exactly very clear;
Quote:
On 15 and 17 June, it will spend a day being displayed in The World Trade Centre and in front of a selected 7-Eleven store at Patterson Street, Causeway Bay.
And on Saturday
Quote:
The performance area will be along the stretch of Lung Wo Road, the stretch between the IFC and the Wanchai Convention Centre. Crowds upwards of 40,000 spectators are expected to line the estimated 600m stretch. A series of pre-event activations can also be expected in the lead up to the event. To round up the motorsports extravaganza, super bike and drift show demonstrations, high speed car formations will also be organised & played out before the Red Bull Racing F1 car roars to life

High speed car formation? Hmmm...are we talking about exotic cars like Lambos, Ferraris and Aston Martins? Or sport cars/coupes/sedans like 911 Carerra S, M3, M5, C63, Miata, Fairlady, etc? Does it say what time on Saturday?

Interesting, I assume there will be a "track" (the one they refer to from IFC to Wanchai?) laid out for f1 and high performance to blast around? Probably not on the scale of say the Singaporean city F1 track, but maybe a little track? Personally, I rather have a track for my own use so that I can blast around in my own bimmer without speed restrictions, hahaha, in my dreams.

Sorry, was out at the time. Event started at 6 ish but you'd have to arrive way earlier to find a spot - I was too far and wasn't bothered to take pics, just video. F1 car sounds absolutely epic
