Daniel Ricciardo Slot Car Track – custom built to create his dream race track
The Daniel Ricciardo slot car track display’s the Red Bull Racing driver’s ideal F1 racetrack. The track is a mashup of 40 corners from various courses on the F1 schedule.
It’s a pretty crazy track
“It’s a pretty crazy track,” he told foxsports.com.au. “I took a lot of corners that I love on the calendar and tried to put them together in some way.”
“There’s a few hairpins and tighter stuff just mainly for overtaking, but otherwise it’s all pretty fast, flowing corners which I enjoy a lot.”
Corners of the custom made Daniel Ricciardo slot car track are featured from; Circuit of The Americas, Hockenheimring, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Hungaroring, Monte-Carlo, Red Bull Ring, Monza, Sochi Autodrom, Suzuka Circuit, Albert Park, Spa-Francorchamps and Silverstone.
“Eau Rouge is awesome but it’s flat out,” he explained. “In qualifying, I wouldn’t say it’s as challenging as Pouhon.”
“At Pouhon you have a bit off a lift, and it’s a question of ‘how much do you lift’, as opposed to Eau Rouge which is flat, and that’s it.”
“For a challenge, I thought Pouhon would be a bit better.”
Daniel Ricciardo is fresh off a runner up finish in Singapore. He climbed out of the podium finishing car and headed to Perth, where he unveiled the F1 slot car track.
