If you’re a student heading to RMIT University this year, then you have the opportunity to get up close an personal with Aussie Daniel Ricciardo‘s Formula 1 car. The RB7 is the car he drove in the 2012 season, but still looks the part right here in 2017.
RMIT is synonymous for technology, research and innovation, so having a formula 1 car on campus, is a fantastic way to suggest the hearts and minds that live inside the buildings and staff. It’s not often you get this close to a million dollar vehicle, so get down there if you can and check it out.
Ricciardo has achieved 18 podiums, with 4 being on the top step and a massive 109 races. No doubt his tally will grow this year as the 2017 F1 season is set to kick off in style in Melbourne from the 24th to 26th of March.
RMIT will also attend the event which is an opportunity to promote their focus on the next generation.
